Civil servants imprison Permanent Sec. over unpaid Christmas bonuses

permsecIn Nigeria, that is.

AllAfrica.com has the whole story.

My favourite parts:

“The demonstrating staff locked all entrances leading into the Ministry … and switched off all the lights, thereby preventing the use of the lift”

“The Permanent Secretary was sighted moving about in his office, fanning himself with old copies of newspapers and making frantic phone calls.”

“Some of the demonstrating workers … said they were demanding Sallah, Christmas and New Year gifts from the management.”
