Human rights activist and author, comrade Paul Njoku, has described the attack on the chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Mr Joe Ajaero in Imo State, as an act of terrorism.
Mr Paul said this in a terse statement he made available to the media.
According to Paul, the recklessness action of governor Uzodinma has left the entire state in darkness, frustration and panic.
He wondered if Uzodinma’s administration must kill, maim, attack and intimidate to prove they are in power.
The statement reads, “Beating up Comr. Joe Ajaero, the labour leader is an act of terrorism and overzealousness. Those hopeless appointees of the Imo State governor who are skillful in bringing hardship to the clueless 3R government of the state are happy now.
“Look out how their recklessness has left the whole state in darkness, frustration, panic and insecurity.
“Must they kill, maim, attack and intimidate to prove they are in power?”
Recall that the NLC chairman was allegedly abducted and brutalized by suspected security operatives during the organised labour protest in Imo State last week Wednesday.
Ajaero was whisked away and later appeared with injuries on his face, revealing that he was beaten.
Though, Imo State Police command denied masterminding his abduction.
