The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has confirmed the release of the four detained leaders of the Nigeria Union Road Transport Workers (NURTW) by the Nigeria Police.
NLC President, Mr. Joe Ajaero, confirmed the release in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Abuja.
Ajaero said that the officials were released on Thursday night after staying for more than a month in custody.
The released officials were the National President, Tajudeen Baruwa; General Secretary, Anthony Chukudi; National Trustee, Olayi Odion; and Principal Assistant Secretary, Abdulrasak Yemi.
The National Executive Council (NEC) had during its meeting on Aug. 31 condemned the Police’s action and called for the release of the NURTW leadership.
This was part of the NLC’s demand during the two-day nationwide warning strike held on Sept. 5 and 6.
