Residents Stone Labour Leaders In Jos While Trying To Mobilize Protesters

According to Daily Trust, Some members of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) were, on Tuesday, May 17, 2016, stoned at the Terminus Market in Jos, Plateau State while trying to mobilize traders for a strike scheduled to hold today, May 18.

The labour leaders were reportedly attacked while urging the traders not to open their shops today due to the planned strike.

Some youths in the area reportedly gathered around the union members while they were speaking and threw stones at them while chanting in Hausa, ‘Karya kukeyi,’ meaning, ‘You are telling lies’.

The government is however reportedly proposing a reduced price of N120.
