Strike: VIO Accuses NLC Of Disrupting Its Operation

Ogun state Vehicle Inspection Officers (V.I.O) have warned the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to desist from disturbing its officers at their duty post in a move to force them to join the on-going strike against the new petrol price.

Ogun state chief V.I.O, Engineer Ademehin Olugboyega speaking to RockCity FM, said some NLC activists distrupted the activities of V.I.O operatives in the Ijebu axis of the state on Wednesday.

Olugboyega said V.I.O offers essential services and it is s a paramilitary organisation that cannot go on strike.

Meanwhile, the alleged corruption trial of former Governor Gbenga Daniel at an Abeokuta high court has been stalled by the strike by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to protest the new petrol price of N145 per litre.

The trial which was scheduled to resume on Thursday, could not hold as the gates of the state judiciary complex at Isabo area of Abeokuta remained shut to lawyers and litigants.

It is not certain if the hearing will hold on Friday if the strike continues.

The court still has two more days, June 23rd and 24th for the trial as agreed to by lawyers to the former governor and the economic and financial crimes commission (EFCC).
