Earlier, the federal government and a non-governmental group had secured two court injunctions restraining the labour unions from proceeding with the action.

While the Peace and Unity Ambassadors Association secured an injunction against the strike on Thursday, the acting Director of the Department Civil Litigation of the Federal Ministry of Justice, Mrs Maimuna Shiru, and Mr Tijjani Gazali, led the government’s team who moved an ex parte application praying the court to stop the strike, on Friday.
