Leaders of the Orgaised Labour in Ogun State, Tuesday, physically assaulted journalists who were on their legitimate duties covering the industrial action embarked upon by the Union.

The Journalists were at the Ijaye State Hopistal, Ijaye, Abeokuta to report the compliance level of the industrial action when they were attacked by the lout-looking Union leaders.

The journalists became the victims of the union leaders who ignored the Identity Cards displayed by the journalists and descended heavily on them by physically assaulting them.

The Union members who came to the place in a vehicle also attacked and physically assaulted female journalists who were part of the team that visited the hospital.

Those attacked included Daud Olatunji of the Punch newspaper, Joke Adeleye of PM News, Michael Olaoluwa and Tutu Sobowale of PlatformTimes online newspaper and one Busola from an Abeokuta based radio station.

They also harassed hospital workers who were on emergency duty.

One of the journalists reported that he was beaten blue black despite displaying his ID card.

The Organised union had on Monday declared a total and indefinite strike over alleged neglect of their demands from the government which included unremitted salary deductions spanning 21 months, amongst others.
