The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has leveled serious allegations against Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State. According to NLC’s Head of Media and Information, Benson Upah, Uzodinma orchestrated a violent attack on the village of NLC President, Joe Ajaero.
The incident, which occurred on November 4th, 2023, involved thugs invading Azalla Owalla in Emekuku, Owerri, the hometown of Ajaero. Upah claimed that the attack was an attempt to assassinate Ajaero, who was believed to be recovering from injuries inflicted by the police and hired thugs during a protest in Owerri on November 1st.
In an official statement released on Sunday, Upah expressed profound concern over Governor Uzodinma’s blatant disregard for human rights and democratic principles. The NLC condemned the governor’s aggression, describing it as an alarming display of power aimed at suppressing and brutalizing the NLC president.
The statement highlighted the governor’s sinister motive, emphasizing that the invasion of Azalla Owalla was carried out under the misguided belief that Ajaero was still present in the community.
