The Nigerian Labour Congress have called for an investigation into the assassination attempts on two prominent Nigerians, General Muhammadu Buhari, former Head of State and Sheik Dahiru Bauchi, a prominent Islamic Cleric, which left scores of people dead is criminal and abhorrent.
Chris Uyot, Acting General Secretary, in a statement said Messrs Muhammadu Buhari and Dahiru Bauchi are among decent and illustrious Nigerians who continue to labour to keep Nigeria together. We are completely shocked that anyone would want them dead.
“We would want a comprehensive investigation of these incidents with a view to not only unravelling the forces behind them but for the purpose of preventing subsequent attempts.” statements reads.
The NLC noted that Boko Haram, it seems has become a convenient brand under which all manner of atrocities are committed.
The Union condemns the senseless slaughter of innocent lives and call for more action from the government and more vigilance from the citizenry.
