Nasir El-Rufai, the state governor, confirmed the news on his verified Twitter account @elrufai on Tuesday morning.
Under the Miscellaneous Offences Act, the NLC president and other labour leaders have been proclaimed sought for economic sabotage and assault on public facilities in Kaduna State, he added.
KADUNA UPDATE: Ayuba Wabba & others of @NLCHeadquarters declared wanted for economic sabotage & attacks on public infrastructure under Miscellaneous Offences Act. Anyone that knows where he is hiding should send a message to @MOJKaduna. KDSG. There will be a handsome reward!

He urged anyone with information regarding the NLC President’s whereabouts to contact the Kaduna State Ministry of Justice, promising a hefty reward.
Wabba had earlier on Monday led workers in the state on a warning strike following the recent disengagement of over seven thousand civil servants at the state and local governments by the state government.

The protest resulted in a power outage, shut down of the airport, and fuel queues in various parts of the state as aviation workers shut down operations of Kaduna International Airport (KIA) in solidarity.

The National Union of Petroleum Employees of Nigeria (NUPENG), the National Union of Electricity Employees of Nigeria (NUEE), and the National Union of Textile, Tailoring, and Garment Workers of Nigeria were among the affiliate unions that joined the protest.
Remember that the Kaduna State government condemned the protest on Monday.
The state’s economic operations are being sabotaged, according to the Head of Service, Baritu Mohammed, in an interview with Channels Television.
“What is currently taking place in Kaduna is a campaign of social and economic sabotage, not a strike. Despite unlawful attempts to shut down our offices, hospitals, and schools, the Kaduna State government continues to operate. Our schools, offices, and hospitals have all reopened.
On Monday, Mohammed said, “The NLC is aware that inflicting suffering on people, locking hospitals and public facilities, and shutting down electricity would not alter or impact the decision of the Kaduna State government.”

The Kaduna State government also called the NLC workers’ actions “unlawful” in a tweet on Monday.
“Some of the NLC’s illegal acts include power outages, intimidation and restraints of personal liberty, trespassing into public buildings, and denial of healthcare to a number of our people. They shut down several hospitals and ejected the patients.
“Illegally locked general hospitals in Kawo, Tudun-Wada, Kafanchan, Giwa, Rigasa, Kakuri, and Sabon Tasha. They also closed rural hospitals and primary health centres in Kwoi, Turunku, and other parts of the state,” Kaduna state governor Mohammed Abubakar tweeted.
