An interim injunction restraining the organised Labour from embarking on any kind of strike in Imo state has been extended by the National Industrial Court sitting in Owerri the Imo state capital.
The extension request was granted after Justice Nelson Ogbuanya listened to submissions of the Attorney General of Imo State, Cyprian Akaolisa.
In the suit No NICN/ OW/41/2023, in which the Attorney General of Imo State and the Imo State Government are applicants, they prayed that since there is a subsisting order restraining the defendants from going on strike, the order should be extended.
They noted that the defendants; the Nigeria Labour Congress and the secretary General, Comrade Emmanuel Ugboaja and the Trade Union Congress and its secretary General, Comrade Nuhu Toro, are mobilising its members from the South East and South South for a strike to occupy Imo from November 01,2023.
The court which granted the order of extended interim injunction restraining the defendants from embarking on any strike in whatever guise, warned against the disobedience of its order saying that it will attract consequences.
The Court adjourned the matter to November, 03,2023 for either hearing or report of settlement.
