Officials of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), on Saturday morning, physically stopped airlines operating from the General Aviation Terminal (GAT), in Lagos, from flying.
As early as 6.30a.m, NLC officials had taken over the departure halls where Arik Airlines and Air Peace operate from and stopped the airlines’ staff from checking in passengers or selling tickets.

The NLC officials came in a bus with large loud speakers from where they played music as if in a road show.
It was a shouting match on the counters of Arik Air and Air Peace where officers of the airlines and NLC officials clashed.
Earlier, Air Peace and Arik Air had checked in some passengers for early flights and actually announced boarding for Abuja before NLC officials arrived.
