Local Government workers in Kogi State have blocked the Federal High Way around Koton Karfe in protest over non-payment of salaries arrears by the state government despite the bail out by the federal government.
The protest has resulted in a heavy grid lock on the High way as commuters have been stuck on the road for hours.
Speaking further, Zubairu Abdulkarim said the protest started around 8 am on Thursday, and has gained momentum as more protesters come out to block the road.
He described the scene as chaotic with hundreds of protesters on the road causing over two kilometers of traffic as vehicle and commuters are trapped without movement.
Abdulkarim also noted the arrival of the traditional ruler of Katon-Karfe who made an appearance at the scene to calm down the protesters
