Some members of staff of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency Response Unit (LRU) on Friday protested demanding the payment of over five months’ salary arrears owed by the Lagos State government.

The protest which was staged at Alausa, Ikeja saw the staff with placard of various inscriptions

The report gathered that the large number of workers who had reportedly stopped reporting for work, the number of agents at the LRU call centre had been depleted.

One of the workers who pleaded anonymity said they have stopped the emergency management operations in Lagos and manned the Command and Control Centre at Alausa, Ikeja, where over 80,000 emergency calls were received on a daily.

“Our salaries has stopped during former governor, Ambode’s tenure. I have a child that is very sick but no money to pay her hospital bills. I urged the present governor, Sanwo-Olu to intervene and get our salaries paid to us for we are dying of hunger, he said.

According to him, nobody will picked calls to the 112/767 emergency numbers until the state government settled them.

The LRU is a unit created from the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency.

It will be recalled that 33 sacked adhoc staff had in July staged a protest at the House of Assembly, seeking Sanwo-Olu’s intervention to regain their jobs
