The Secretariat of the Medical and Health Workers Union, Rivers State Council was on Thursday afternoon reportedly invaded by suspected thugs. A source said officials of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) led by the state Chairperson, Comrade Beatrice Itubo, were having a meeting when the hoodlums struck.
City News gathered that the building was also sealed after the incident though it is unclear which government agency is responsible for the sealing.
Our source reports that the Comrade Beatrice Itubo-led NLC resorted to using the Medical and Health Workers Union office after its official Secretariat at Igboukwu Street in Dline was sealed for Integrity Test in February.
Efforts by City News to get Itubo to speak on the development proved abortive as her lines were switched off. The NLC has been enduring a sour relationship with the State Government as a result of disagreements in the implementation of the Minimum wage in Rivers State.
