Cross River State pensioners, mainly local government retirees, reportedly blocked the Murtala Mohammed Highway in Calabar metropolis to protest the non-payment of their benefits to them by the state government since 2014.

They also chanted songs and carried placards as they asked Governor Ben Ayade to pay them their pensions.

They arranged chairs and sat on the two lanes of the road so that the state will feel their pains.

They said that the state government stopped their salaries without an letter or the termination of their appointment.

It was gathered that the pensioners were among those the state government announced to have been dead.

It was also gathered that some retirees, who have not been paid since 2014, have concluded plans to drag Ayade to the National Industrial Court in Calabar.

The pension being owed by the state government was put at over N35bn.
