Hoodlums have attacked some members of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC enforcing the ongoing indefinite strike in Jos, the Plateau State capital.

It was gathered that the NLC and the Trade Union Congress, TUC, shut down the country’s economy on Monday over the federal government’s inability to accept its proposed N494,000 Minimum Wage.

While enforcing the strike in Jos, touts at a private transport company reportedly attacked some NLC members, landing them in the hospital.

Addressing newsmen, the Vice Chairman of NLC in Plateau, Sunday Ayodele, explained that “Immediately the touts at the park saw us arriving at the gate, they started hauling stones at us, thinking we were members of the NURTW.

“Unknown to us, there is a pending dispute between the private transport company and NURTW Jos. And the touts in the park simply descended on our members. Before we could understand the reason for the attack, the touts had injured 4 members of NLC.

“It took the intervention of the security agencies for calm to be restored at the park. We had to withdraw our enforcement team from the park to allow peace to reign.”
