We hear rumours of disturbances at the British Council in Abuja, following the court’s judgement on the case brought by Awuese Oku against the British Council for unfair dismissal. The story goes that the judgement means that the BC have to find some money and the authorities were trying to get that money out of them – there was even talk of impounding the British Council’s vehicles. A fair amount of commotion we hear, and the office was closed all day as a result. Surely this can’t mean that the British Council is reluctant to comply with a court order? We hope to have more on this.
