The Nigeria Labour Congress on Friday confirmed the release of the four leaders of the Nigeria Union Road Transport Workers by the Nigeria Police Force.
Mr. Joe Ajaero, the President of NLC, confirmed this development during a telephone conversation with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja.
Ajaero said that the officials were released on Thursday night after staying for more than a month in custody.
The individuals who regained their freedom include Tajudeen Baruwa, the National President, Anthony Chukudi, the General Secretary, Olayi Odion, the National Trustee, and Abdulrasak Yemi, the Principal Assistant Secretary.
The National Executive Council had during its meeting on August 31 condemned the police’s action and called for the release of the NURTW leadership.
This was part of NLC’s demand during the two-day nationwide warning strike held on September 5 and 6.
