Nigeria’s National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers went on strike today to protest the firing of workers by a fuel marketing company, the Nation reported.

The action will continue until the workers are reinstated, the Lagos-based newspaper said, citing Igwe Achese, the union president.

MRS Oil and Gas Plc fired 2,500 workers in breach of an agreement with the union, Achese said, according to the newspaper.
