The Trade Union Congress of Nigeria, TUC has lost its Secretary General, Comrade Musa-Lawal Ozigi and Kwara State TUC Chairman, Comrade Akin Akinsola.
A statement by TUC President, Comrade Quadri Olaleye says they were among the people killed by terrorists in the Abuja-Kaduna train bombing that occurred on Monday evening.
According to the statement, they were on their way to Kaduna for an official assignment slated for today, Tuesday 29 March, 2022.
Comrade Ozigi served in the capacity of General Secretary, Construction and Civil Engineering Senior Staff Association CCESSA, an affiliate of TUC for almost two decades before he joined TUC in 2012 while Comrade Akinsola was a staff of Dangote Flour Mill under OLAM.
While mourning the unfortunate and untimely death of the two comrades, the statement calls on government at all levels, especially the Federal Government to rise up to the occasion to stop the killing of innocent Nigerians, pointing out that no where is any longer safe in the country as if Nigeria is a failed state.
It condoles with the families and friends of the two murdered comrades and the good people of Kogi State for this irreparable loss.
