  11. Nigeria: Ongoing strike by call centre staff

    The strike by workers at the MTN call centre in the Plateau state capital of Jos has now entered its third month. MTN is a leading African mobile phone network provider. The Jos centre is run by a subcontractor, Communications Support Service Limited (CNSSL).

    Their demands are for pay parity with MTN workers at centres in Kano, Lagos, Kaduna and Port Harcourt. They are also demanding a N11,550 ($71) payment for overnight work, and a N6,000 ($37) credit monthly allowance for MTN network phone calls.

    The intervention of the Plateau House of Assembly and the Plateau Chapter of the Nigerian Labour Congress has failed to resolve the dispute. They are also demanding the re-instatement of 18 call centre staff sacked by CNSSL.

  13. Army maintains silence on murderous military rampage

    Tuesday 09 October 2012

    Nigerian army officers refused to comment yesterday on reports that soldiers killed more than 30 civilians in Maiduguri on Monday.

    Troops also set fire to homes and shops in the rampage, which was apparently in revenge for a bomb attack that killed a lieutenant and six other soldiers.

    One soldier told reporters: “They killed our officer. We had no options.”

    But witness reports suggested the victims were unarmed and there was no evidence that they had been linked to the bombing, thought to be the work of radical Islamist terror group Boko Haram.

    The organisation is waging an increasingly bloody campaign to impose sharia law across Nigeria and the army has been accused of resorting to indiscriminate violence in response.
