Fuel Price/Electricity Tariff Hike: Judicial workers declare two-week indefinite strike. In solidarity with the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, and the Trade Union Congress, TUC, staff of the Federal High Court have declared a two-week indefinite strike.

The judicial workers, under the umbrella of Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria, JUSUN, ordered the closure of all offices in court from Monday, in line with the joint decision of both the labour and trade unions in the country to embark on industrial action in protest of the recent hike in the prices of electricity and petroleum products. The directive for courts to be shut from Monday came barely twenty-four hours after the National Industrial Court, NIC, in Abuja, issued an order that stopped the planned action by NLC and TUC. The unsigned notice for the commencement of strike judicial workers, copies of which were circulated in and around the Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday, read: “Please be informed that the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN), Federal High Court chapter shall, in collaboration with the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), commences a two-week indefinite strike action from Monday the 28th day of September 2020. “All offices shall remain closed within this period. You are required to comply.”

Nnamdi Kanu the leader of the ingenious people of Biafra IPOB, on Monday sent a strong message to the Governor of Rivers State Nyesom Wike saying his state will not escape the wrath of God and the people over the killings in Obigbo.

Mazi Nnamdi kanu maintained that those that lost their families and lost ones are eager to wreck  vengeance of Wike. He said that wike gave the order to the Army to murder the citizens of Obigbo. he made this assertion in a statement that he signed.

“Everybody that has a hand in the ongoing Obigbo genocide must know that vengeance is coming, it’s not a matter of if but when. And when it does come, apologists of Wike and the army must remember what happened at Obigbo.

“There were riots and disturbances all over Nigeria. Nigerian army and police have killed and continue to kill hundreds of young people and in retaliation young people attacked police stations. To single out the inhabitants of Obigbo for extermination is a vicious and evil undertaking and a calculated attempt by Wike to please his Fulani masters and Britain that tried but failed to exterminate the Igbo race between 1966-70. Obigbo will not die, it shall rise again because the blood of the innocent is crying out for revenge.

 “Vengeance is coming and with it the judgment of God. Those children in Obigbo murdered by Wike have nephews and cousins who are so embittered to the point that they can no longer be controlled. I feel sorry for Wike, his children and all collaborators in this brutal genocide.

“As Nigeria have not mourned those being put to the sword by Wike and Nigerian army in Obigbo they must remember not to mourn Wike and his allies when the table inevitably turns.

“Twist the narrative all you like, nobody can stop the hand of time. When the rain begins to fall, remember I warned you. I will not write, neither will I comment on this issue again.”
