Protesters were dispersed by the Police with teargas on Tuesday, June 25, at the headquarters of the Labour Party (LP) in Abuja.

Members of the Nigeria Labour Congress national transition committee had stormed the party’s secretariat, demanding the immediate resignation of the National Chairman, Julius Abure.

The Acting Chairman of the transition committee, Aduwaheed Omar, led members of the labour union to the secretariat, chanting solidarity songs and calling for the resignation of Abure because his tenure as the chairman of the party had expired.

According to Channels TV, security officials immediately shut the gates when the NLC members arrived at the Party’s headquarters.

However, in an attempt to prevent the protesters from forcing their way into the premises, the police fired teargas to dispatch the protesters, who were heard shouting endlessly at the security men to “open the gate”.
