“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.
