Just days after the Awareness reported about their peaceful protest in Owerri hundreds of Imo pensioners again took to the streets to protest the non-payment of their pensions.
This time, they totally blocked the entrance and exit points leading to the Government House in Owerri.
Needless to say, this caused a massive traffic gridlock along adjoining roads such as Wethedral and Okigwe roads.
Some of the pensioners who spoke on condition of anonymity said they resorted to returning to the streets after the State Government failed to fulfil their promises to them.
Our reporter observed repeated violations of National COVID-19 protocols during the protest which comes at a time that Imo State is experiencing a huge spike in the number of infections and was quite alarming.
