Workers Lock Minister of Works, Dave Umahi Inside Office (PHOTOS)

Protesting workers in the Ministry of Works have locked the minister, Dave Umahi, inside his office on Thursday morning.

The workers accused Umahi of highhandedness and preventing late workers from gaining access to the ministry.

The union members comprising the Housing and Works Ministry decided to lock up the ministry and block entry and exit into the building, thereby preventing the minister from leaving the office premises.

They also claimed that Umahi stopped engineers and directors from doing their work and has been breaking public service rules since his appointment by bringing in consultants to run the affairs of the ministry.
