Some civil servants in Zamfara State observed special prayers at the Eid mosque in Gusau, the state capital, on Saturday.
Daily Trust reports that the workers who converged on the mosque around 10 a.m. sought divine intercession over their salaries.
The workers said they were last paid in January and were finding it difficult to meet up with their demands.
“Many of us have been pushing to be beggars, unable to eat one square meal a day. So, this prayer session is specially meant to commit our dear governor, Head of Service, members of the House of Assembly and all those concerned, for God to enable them to have compassion on us.
“We have suffered enough on account of this struggle, many lost their lives too and we want it no more. We have gathered in unison devoid of religious affiliations to sincerely seek God’s intervention for all,” one of them who craved anonymity said.
