Socialists in Nigeria are taking action to defend Socialist Worker editor Femi Aborisade, whose house was attacked twice. The first time, on 22 November, he suffered machete wounds.

On 29 December, though his attackers could not gain entrance, they called him to come out. They rebuked him for not heeding warnings.

Femi has been at the fore of an anti-corruption crusade in Ibadan Polytechnic where he works.

His union branch held an emergency congress on 8 January. It issued a two-week ultimatum to management to unearth the causes of the attacks.

It also set up a seven-man independent panel to investigate.
