It was gathered that many of the women whose salaries ranges between 5,000 and N15,000  took to popular MCC Road to protest non payment of their six months salaries .

The women numbering about 50 who barricaded the road with logs of woods, also poured waste on the road in protest while chanting solidarity songs and lamenting that they can no longer bear the pain .

Some of them who spoke with vanguard said it was unfortunate that the people in charge have turned deaf ears to thier plight even after so many appeals since June.

One of them simply identified as Mrs Iquo said many of them are really suffering over the meager salary as some get as low as 8,000 and are being owed for 6 months.
