Seven UNILORIN Workers Arrested by DSS Over NASU, SSANU Strike

Seven workers of the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN), Kwara State, have been arrested by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS). The seven workers of UNILORIN are said to be members of the Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) and the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU). The workers were said to be arrested over the ongoing nationwide strike of both unions.

Those arrested are: SSANU National Financial Secretary M. J. Akanbi, SSANU Branch Secretary T. M. Saheed, NASU Branch Secretary Flourish Josephine, Kwara State NASU Secretary Owoeye, Idris Alata, as well as a stakeholder in both unions, Adejumo Olusola.

SSANU Chairman Joseph Olumayowa Oyedepo said: “We commenced our nationwide strike today. As usual, we need to stop our members from going to the office.

“We went round the offices to check if our members were at work. We met two people that are not our members locked inside the Network Operating Centre (NOC). After those guys came out of the room, we discovered that they were not our members. So, we handed them over to the school’s security.
