Over a dozen Alsatian dogs deployed by the Ogun State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) yesterday frightened striking workers, who attempted to surge into the secretariat at Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, the state capital.

The workers were protesting the non-payment of their pension deduction, among others.

The government ordered the workers to report to work yesterday and issued a “no work no pay” circular signed by the Head of Service, Sola Adeyemi.

But yesterday hundreds of workers led by the state chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Akeem Ambali, marched on the road leading to the secretariat and hurriedly beat a retreat when  Alsatian dogs charged at them.

The workers, bearing placards with inscriptions denouncing the government’s ‘no work, no pay’ order, said the state belongs to us and urged Governor Ibikunle Amosun to pay their deductions if he wants them to resume work.
