Four members of the Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) of the Lagos State Polytechnic (LASPOTECH), Ikorodu, have been asked to appear at the Ikorodu-Sagamu road Police station, on Sunday in connection to an allegation by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) that two of its officials were almost set ablaze by some workers of the institution.
Those invited by the Police are Muinat Ogunbambi-Ibrahim, Rauf Ayanda, Oluwatobiloba and Olalekan Tiamiyu. But their Union kicked against their invitation, saying it suspects a sinister plan by the Police.
NASU, therefore, called on all its members and those of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Polytechnics (SSANIP) to assemble by 12 noon at the gate of the Polytechnic in solidarity with the invited workers.
A message sent to members of NASU by its chairman, Semiu Fasasi on Saturday evening, indicated that all the union members would visit the Police station at the appointed time.
“Ahead of our movement to the Police station, all invitees and the Unions’ Executives are to meet at the 3rd Gate by 12pm for a brief discussion. Lets remain calm. Aluta Continua, Victoria Ascerta,” he stated.
Addressing pressmen in Abuja, the registrar of JAMB, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, had condemned the alleged attack on his men. He also said efforts were on to investigate what transpired.
