NLC protests applicants' death in Kaduna

18 March 2014, 15:14

Kaduna  - The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), on Monday in Kaduna staged a peaceful protest at the state command of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) over recent deaths recorded during recruitment into the service.

The protesters led by the NLC Vice-President, Isa Aremu, arrived the NIS state command early in the morning and blocked its entrance and prevented the staff from gaining access to their offices.

The union members carried placards that contained various inscriptions and a letter of protest which they wanted to deliver to the state controller.

However, the officers on duty refused the workers access into the premises and explained that the controller was not on seat.

In his address, NLC Vice-President, Isa Aremu, demanded an immediate compensation for the families of the 19 victims.

He appealed to President Goodluck Jonathan to demonstrate that no life of an applicant will further be wasted at any recruitment centre.

He said, "the president should take action so as to prevent shameless exhibition of incompetence and non-service delivery by some of his ministers."

He urged the Minister of Interior, Abba Moro, to unearth the causes of the recent death.
