The Nigeria Labour Congress has condemned the widespread insecurity witnessed in the country.
President of the NLC, Ayuba Wabba who spoke at the NLC National Executive Council meeting in Abuja on Wednesday February 17, averred that millions of Nigerians have become refuges in their own land after being forced us into a state of perpetual tension and apprehension by criminals.
“There is no day in Nigeria that one form of violent crime or another is not reported. Many Nigerian citizens have been forced by the large scale spread of rural and urban violence to abandon their homes.
“Millions of Nigerians have become refuges in their own land. Many Nigerians yet to flee their homes have literarily become prisoners in their own homes as criminals have forced us into a state of perpetual tension and apprehension.
“Kidnap-for-ransom has been elevated to the status of jungle enterprise. The crime of kidnapping has become no respecter of persons as the low and mighty are all vulnerable. Workers are also victims. Many of us no longer feel safe both at work and home.”
Noting that many Nigerians are resorting to self-help, Wabba added that COVID-19 had stripped the nation of its dignity “so much so that it was becoming increasingly difficult for the government of the day to manage the attendant consequences.”
