Following the discontinuation of talks between Ikeja Electric with Labour over the recent disengagement of workers, the union on Monday stormed, barricaded the corporate headquarters and other facilities of the electricity distribution company.
Lamenting the incidence on her official Twitter page @IkejaElectric, the power distribution company described the labour union’s act as a sabotage to shut down power supply at a time when there is abject fuel.

Recall that last month, Labour had picketed the electricity distribution company for three days over the disengagement of workers who failed to meet the company’s performance objectives and were deemed to be performing below standard.
However, the picketing was suspended after Ikeja Electric reached an agreement with the National Union of Electricity Workers (NUEE) and Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) to set up a committee to review the performance appraisal and competency assessment process.
