NLC President, Ajaero Brutalised by Policemen, Rushed to Owerri FMC

The President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) Joe Ajaero has been rushed to the Federal Medical Centre (FMC) Owerri with his right eye allegedly completely shut.
This comes hours after he was arrested, blindfolded and brutalised by the policemen in Imo State.
The NLC Head of Information and Publicity, Benson Upah, described what happened to Ajaero as an act of abduction that degenerated into attempted murder.
He said: “Contact has been made with Congress President, Comrade Joe Ajaero this evening around 15:30 hours at the Police Hospital in Owerri from where he was taken to Federal Medical Centre, Owerri where he is receiving medical attention.
“Thoroughly brutalised, his right eye at the time of contact was completely shut.
“Ajaero, who said little stated that immediately after his arrest, he was beaten up and blindfolded and taken to an unknown destination where more brutalisation took place, sometimes with bottles.
“His phones, money and other personal effects were taken off him and have not been returned to him.”
