<p class="">The police in Lagos have arrested 10 trade union leaders of the Lagos State Polytechnic, Ikorodu over alleged attempted murder.</p>

<p class="">The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) gathered that the LASPOTECH unionists were arrested for molesting JAMB examiners conducting UTME on the campus.</p>

<p class="">Spokesman for Lagos Police Command, DSP Bala Elkana, confirmed the arrest to NAN on Tuesday, saying that the suspects were undergoing interrogation at Special Investigation Bureau of the command.</p>

<p class="">Elkana said the suspests were arrested for an alleged attempt to murder some JAMB officials who were carrying out official duties at the iinstitution.</p>

<p class="">However, the police spokesman did not explain how the unionists attempted to kill the JAMB officials.</p>

<p class="">“<em>They are undergoing interrogation at the headquarters for attempted murder. They will be charged to court as soon as investigation was concluded</em>,” he said.</p>

<p class="">LASPOTECH Spokesman, Olanrewaju Kuye, who also confirmed the arrest, told NAN that the affected staff were arrested over alleged molestation of two JAMB staff on official duty on the campus.</p>

<p class="">He said that the matter was reported by JAMB to the police for investigation.</p>

<p class="">“<em>The molested JAMB officials reported to the police.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>” The Polytechnic management only apologised to JAMB when we heard of it because we have not been allowed into our offices by the striking unions since January.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“Since we are not on ground, we cannot really ascertain what happened, but would only depend on the report from the investigation of the police.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“It is now a case of the police, JAMB versus the union and not the management,</em>” he said.</p>

<p class="">The spokesman said the incident was an embarrassment and loss to the institution as JAMB immediately relocated its CBT centre from the polytechnic to another venue.</p>

<p class="">NAN reports that non -academic staff of LASPOTECH, comprising Non-Academic Staff Union of Polytechnic (NASUP) and The Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Polytechnic (SSANIP), had on Jan. 21 embarked on an indefinite strike.</p>

<p class="">The unions were demanding for a reversal in the de-migration of the polytechnic workers salary structure from the CONTISS 15 migration.</p>

<p class="">The unions have persistently staged daily protests and also prevented management staff from having access to their offices.</p>
