A National Industrial Court sitting in Ibadan has declared as null and void the sack of a staff of African Newspaper of Nigeria PLC, Publishers of the Nigerian Tribune Titles, Mr. Kareem Popoola by the company.

The presiding Judge, Justice J. D Peters delivered the judgement on the suit filed by Mr Popoola on Monday.

Our correspondent gathered that Popoola is a former President of Staff Cooperative Society of the company.

The judge also described the dismissal of Popoola as abuse of power by the management of the company.

Peters noted that the company could not give any reason for dismissing the plaintiff.

The Judge said that the plaintiff was not queried for any gross misconduct on duties before sacking him as claimed by the company.

He noted that the only query given to the complainant was the one issued in 2013 on his activities in the staff Cooperative Society which the Court said was not enough to sack him, as the Cooperative Society was not under the control of the management.

According to the Justice, even if there was any foul play in the Cooperative Society, the then president should be queried by the members or the Ministry of Trades and Investment.

He stressed that membership of the cooperative is voluntary.

The court, therefore, ordered the Company to pay the complainant Two Million Naira as entitlements with an interest of ten percent of the money.

The Judge also ordered the company to also pay the plaintiff over Four Hundred Thousand Naira which is his basic salary for two years as damages.
