A woman took her agitation to another level during a protest this morning by staff of Makurdi local government area of Benue state. The staff were protesting against the non-payment of their 13 months salaries. The woman who has not been paid salary for 13 months, lay in the middle of a busy road to protest, thereby halting the movement of cars.
National Helm reports that when being interviewed, some of the protesting staff claim they have been removed from the payroll for no genuine reason and, as such, have not received salary for over a year. They also claim that some of their colleagues have died as a result and some are battling high blood pressure. They called on the government to intervene and see that they are paid for services rendered.
