A 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.
This happened this morning during a protest by staff of Makurdi local government area of Benue state. The staff were protesting over the 13 months salaries they are owed by the government.
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.
