Reps summon Julius Berger over eviction of workers

House of Representatives Committee on Public Petitions, chaired by Nkem-Abonta, has summoned the management of Julius Berger over alleged forceful eviction notice served on about 720 workers and their families from its various residential camps across Abuja. The workers, in a petition dated June 17, 2016, were purportedly declared redundant by Julius Berger Nigeria Plc via a circular dated June 28, 1999, which was referred to the committee.

According to the aggrieved workers, the company recently issued quit notices to the workers, and “despite the ruling of the High Court and several ones delivered by District Courts in Abuja, FCT for the status quo ante bellum to be maintained, Julius Berger Nigeria Plc has again decided to disrupt the peace in Abuja and cause chaos and anarchy by bringing armed policemen and soldiers to threaten us and forcefully served all of us resident in the company’s quarters a notice termed, ‘Notice to servitude tenant of owner’s intention to apply to recover possession,’ dated June 13, 2016.” Read more
