Galadima granted an interim order restraining the unions, their officers, affiliates, privies from preventing workers and other Nigerians from accessing their offices from Monday.

He also granted an order compelling the Inspector General of Police and the Director-General, Department of State Services (DSS), to protect workers engaged in their legitimate duties from harassment, intimidation and bullying by NLC and TUC.


The order followed an ex-parte application filed by the Incorporated Trustees of Peace and Unity Ambassadors Association through their counsel, Sunusi Musa.
