The leadership of the Organised Labour has replied the Department of State Services, DSS over its warning that the union should suspend its proposed protest scheduled to hold February 27 and 28.

DSS had earlier cautioned the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and its counterpart from Trade Union Congress, TUC against their decision, saying the plea was in the interest of peace across the country.

But NLC President, Joe Ajaero, while reacting to the warning, said the security agency should not blackmail the Labour and arrest those that want to use the opportunity of the protest to foment crisis and by extension, widespread violence as claimed.

He also described the forthcoming action as peaceful protest against cost of living, adding that the Congress would not fold its arm while Nigerians continue to live in penury.
