The NLC in a statement sent to PREMIUM TIMES also called for global action against the military junta to check the carnage against defenceless citizens of the country. The statement, signed by NLC acting president, Najeem Yasin, said the action of the military junta was a betrayal of the people on whose back it rode to power. “The global community should unite to stop this carnage by the military before it escalates into more killings that would derail the momentum of the struggle to reestablish negotiations leading to civilian rule under an atmosphere of free and fair election,” the statement said.

The statement reads in part: “The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has watched with shock the massacre of over 100 pro-democracy activists and other persons by the military Junta in Sudan. “This blatant use of force against unarmed and defenceless civilians, which saw killings involving children and several injured persons over the sit-in by protesters to establish a democratic process in Sudan, is highly condemnable and should not be allowed to continue by the international community.

The crackdown followed the collapse of talks between protest leaders and generals over who should lead a new governing body — a civilian or soldier.
