A group of Nigerians who were mobilized to “pray for Muhammadu Buhari and the peace of the country” at the Eagle Square in Abuja have accused the organizers, the National Youth Council on Nigeria (NYCN) of refusing to pay them their agreed incentives after keeping them the whole day without food.
In an interaction with Premium Times on Friday night at Wuse 2 where they had grounded the car of one Emma George, Chairman of the Taraba chapter of NYCN, one of them said:
We were mobilised from far far places, Keffi, Mararaba and we started the prayer 9 O’clock and till now we have not eaten any thing.
We can’t even go home because we all brought other people. We were promised N1,500 each but Emma George from Taraba pocketed our money. So, we heard they wanted to hold meeting here (Chelsea Hotel), we then decided to come. We didn’t see him but we seized the car from his driver.
They further threatened to take the vehicle with them to Mararaba in Nassarawa.
