The workers, who reportedly arrived as early as 6.00am, met stiff resistance from the security men who stormed the main entrance of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) along Abiola Way, Abeokuta to prevent them.

The windscreen of the car belonging to a member of the state House of Assembly, Olayiwola Ojodu was shattered by the aggrieved workers.
