The Ayuba Wabba faction of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has threatened to ground all flights at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos, from Thursday, May 19, 2016, due to the recent increase in the price of petrol.

The threat was made by NLC Vice President, Adelegan Solomon while addressing protesters at MMIA on Wednesday, May 18, 2016, The Cable reports.

“Today, few planes have taken-off and landed on this airport but by tomorrow, no plane will land or take off. It is operation occupy Lagos State,” Solomon said.

The Wabba faction proceeded with the planned strike on Wednesday in defiance of a National Industrial Court order after peace talks with the government ended in a deadlock.

The Joe Ajaero faction of the union however reached an agreement with the government and dropped out of the strike.

The Trade Union Congress has also dissociated itself from the strike.
