After the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) president, Joe Ajaero, disclosed that they have concluded that today’s protest against the Federal Government over fuel subsidy removal would hold, the operatives of the Nigerian Police kicked in around the Federal Ministry of Justice in Abuja.

The Nigeria Labour Congress officials were found in this area, alongside other concerned citizens that came through to have a peaceful protest over “anti-people” policies that were announced by the President Bola Tinubu administration.

People observed the movement of patrol vans identified as men of the Nigeria Police Force, and Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps around the Unity Fountain, FMOJ among other strategic points.

According to Punch, notable personalities among the protesters include a former national president of the NLC, Ayuba Wabba.

Already, the Federal Ministry of Justice through its Permanent Secretary, Jeddy Agba, had filed a motion to prevent the protest.

The decision of the protesters to take a breather at the justice ministry might not be unconnected with the “war of words” between the ministry and the labour centre.
