Some workers locked the main gate of the ministry of finance on Monday, and prevented Kemi Adeosun, the minister, from entering her office.
The placard-wielding protesters called for her immediate removal, accusing her of not paying their allowances.
They chanted: “She must go! She must go! Olee! Ole! Ole! Ole!.”
Some of the inscriptions on their placards were: ‘PMB is an agent of change, Kemi Adeosun is an agent of negative change,’ ‘you are destroying federal ministry of finance madam Kemi Adeosun’, ‘Kemi Adeosun must go,’ ‘Inflation is 15 percent courtesy of Kemi Adeosun’s incompetence’, ‘Adeosun’s score card is F9’.
Sighting the police, the protesters quickly locked up the exit gate of the building to prevent the security personnel from entering.
The workers later went from one office after another to chase out those who refused to join them in the protest.
Attempts to get the comments of the leaders of the protest were unsuccessful as they declined to speak.
Heavy anti-riot policemen were at the main gate of the building as of the time of filing this report was filed.
