There was fighting at the Lagos Airport earlier today as the Nigeria Labour Congress attempted to shut it down, and the video has since gone viral.
The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), had yesterday vowed to shut down the Lagos airport and other facilities in the state, following the organisation’s directive to commence a nationwide strike.
Well, it seems they tried to keep good of their promise.

The NLC Vice President, Amaechi Asugwuni, who was addressing journalists on Thursday, while aggrieved workers embarked on a protest in the Alausa area of Lagos, said the decision was in compliance with directives of the national leadership of the union.
“From here, we are going round Lagos to ensure that every institution is indeed shut down. Today if the airport is opportune to open today, I am very sure that they will not open tomorrow. Nobody flies in this country,” he said.
The comments come less than 24 hours after the Federal Government held a meeting with the national leadership of the NLC to reach a conclusion over the new minimum wage.
The meeting, however, ended in a deadlock.
Consequently, the NLC directed all its members and affiliate unions to commence the industrial action.
NLC President, Ayuba Wabba, had insisted that there was no going back on the nationwide strike, as the Federal Government had failed to meet their demands.
