Hoodlums reportedly loyal to Governor Nasir El-Rufai have disrupted the peaceful protest embarked upon by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) in Kaduna state.
El-Rufai had on Tuesday declared Ayuba Wabba, president of the NLC and other members of the union wanted.
The governor in a tweet said the labour union leaders were declared wanted for “economic sabotage and attacks on public infrastructure under Miscellaneous Offences Act”.
