Labour Refuse to Shift Ground as Court Stops Protest

Talks between the Federal Government and Organised Labour on recent hike in the pump price of petrol and electricity tariff ended in a deadlock last night.
This came as the national industrial court yesterday granted an order restraining the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC), their officers, affiliates and privies from embarking on any strike or stoppage of work next Monday.

The Labour Unions had earlier given the Federal Government a seven-day ultimatum to reverse the price and electricity tariff increase. Both parties refused to shift ground at yesterday’s meeting between the federal government and organised Labour to find a common ground.
NLC and TUC insisted they would proceed with the planned protest and industrial action unless the government reverts the status quo in respect of the price of petrol and electricity tariff. The federal government, on its part maintained that its decision to increase the pump price of petrol was not to inflict pain or cause harm to Nigerians.

The Court also granted an order compelling the inspector-general of police and the director- general of the department of state services (DSS) to provide protection for workers engaged in their legitimate duties from any form of harassment, intimidation and bullying by the officers, agents or privies of the unions pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.

Looters

The Plateau State Government on Wednesday begun the prosecution of over 300 suspected looters and arsonists in the state.
They were accused of looting, criminal trespass and inciting public disturbance, among other charges.
The suspects, who had been in military and police detention after they were arrested in different parts of Jos and the Bukuru metropolis between Saturday and Sunday, were moved to the Bassa Local Government Area on Wednesday for arraignment.

The defendants were arraigned one after the other at Jebbu Bassa Area Court before several judges including Justices N S Dashe, Adar Roseline Baraje, and L B Longs as well as Lawal Sulaiman, among others.

In all the cases brought before the judges, the prosecutors from the state Ministry of Justice told the court that the accused persons committed the offences against the state and should be prosecuted according to the law.
The defence counsels, however, pleaded with the court to temper justice with mercy for the accused persons, particularly as they were first offenders.
The defence counsels also pleaded for short sentencing with an option of fine after their clients pleaded guilty to the offences.
