Some retired civil servants on Wednesday stormed the ministry of finance to protest the non-payment of their accrued pensions.
According to Vanguard, the workers numbering about 100 carried placards with various inscriptions demanding explanations from ministry officials on why the backlogs of their pensions have not been paid.
The demonstration which started at about 9am is a follow up to the series protest earlier done by the workers.
There were heavy presence of security personnel from the Nigerian Police Force at the ministry to ensure that there was no breakdown of law and order.
The development is gradually affecting activities at the ministry as a section of the gate leading to the ministry has been shut down.
