I Was Beaten Mercilessly, God Must’ve Taken Time To Create Me – NLC President, Ajaero Narrates Ordeal



The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) President, Joe Ajaero has finally broken his silence after his ordeal in police custody.



Recall that he was arrested and assaulted by police officers in Owerri, Imo State.


Ajaero said God must have taken extra time to create him due to the beating he received while in police custody.


Recall that some miscreants disrupted the NLC’s protest in Owerri, the Imo State capital.


The NLC president was in Owerri to mobilize Imo workers for a mega protest rally in the state over an alleged violation and abuse of rights and privileges of workers by the state government.


The violence that broke out during the rally led to men of the Nigeria Police Force whisking away Ajaero.


Speaking after he was released, Ajaero said the police threatened to drag him to court.


According to Ajaero: “If you say interim order, it elapses with time; if the court issues another one, then it’s a different thing. I told them interim order ends within one week or two; they now kept the letter and told me they can prosecute me.


“I told them it’s the same court that can institute a contempt charge; you just can’t start prosecuting me.


“They beat me; God must have taken extra time to create me because of the kind of beating I received.”
