The Chairman, Edo State Chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Sunny Osayande, is dead.

Daily Trust gathered that he died in the early hours of Sunday.

Edo State Secretary of NLC, Barry Imade, confirmed the death of the state’s NLC chairman to our correspondent.

He said, “Yes, he died last night. The doctor will tell you the cause of his death,” he said. Osayande’s death is coming ahead of the planned February 1 workers rally against the planned hike in the pump price of petroleum products by the federal government.

Meanwhile, the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has mourned Osayande.

Obaseki, in a statement, said the state was in great grief over the loss of a true comrade and icon of the Nigerian labour movement in the state.
