In addition, the striking union approached some institutions at the federal secretariat, urging workers to abandon their duties and go home.

The labour strike is a protest against the battering of NLC President Joe Ajaero and some other executives of the congress in Owerri, Imo State on November 1, as well as pending labour issues in Imo State.
