DEATH OF MRS ABIOLA - Nigeria

COSATU learnt with shock the news that Mr Moshood Abiola 's wife was murdered yesterday. We condemn this killing.

COSATU makes a call to the United Nations to conduct an International investigation around the killing of Mrs Abiola. We re-iterate our demands :

  • The people of Nigeria must put pressure on the Abacha regime to allow democracy to take its course.
  • Release of all political prisoners.
  • Respect for human and trade union rights.
  • Legalise the Nigerian Labour Congress

We hope that the Western Countries and the United States will impose sanctions against the military junta and ensure that Nigeria returns to democratic rule.
