The Nigeria Labour Congress has demanded a swift investigation into the murder of Comrade Mallam Abdulmumuni who was until his death the branch Chairman of the Non-Academic Staff Union of Science Technology Technical Education Board (STTEB).
The NLC President, Comrade Ayuba Wabba in a statement on Friday, said that the late Abdulmumuni was reportedly killed by mindless, unknown gunmen at Okene, Kogi State.
He further said that the Congress condemn in very strong terms the cold-blooded killing of the labour leader and so demands for a swift and thorough investigation of the murder with a view to bringing to book the assailants, no matter who they are or who their sponsors might be.
Wabba said; “Comrade Abdulmumuni’s murder is one too many and must not be allowed to join the list of unsolved murder cases in the state. Accordingly, we urge the Police and other security agencies to do all that is necessary to ensure justice is done in this grievous matter.
“We also demand a stop to these murders in the state. Although, we do not want to be drawn into speculations or conspiracy theories, we nonetheless want to caution those who promote this senseless violence to refrain from doing so because violence solves no problem. It only spawns more violence”.
While commiserating with the family of the fallen Comrade, he said, “Our condolences also go to his union and the entire labour family in Kogi State. In Abdulmumuni we have lost an industrious, forthright and social justice crusader” Wabba noted.
