They carried placards with various inscriptions such as “Pay our salaries “; “Shall we die before you pay us?”; “We are saving lives, pay our salaries and “Save us from hunger” among others.

The Osemawe of Ondo, Oba Victor Kiladejo, who addressed the protesters  said he would  meet with Governor Olusegun Mimiko.
