BREAKING: Unpaid footballers of Taraba teams shut down Government House

The players of Taraba State’s male and female football teams, Taraba FC and Taraba Queens, on Monday shut down activities at the government house in the state capital, Jalingo, to protest non-payment of backlogs of their salary arrears.

The players are demanding immediate payment of 21 months’ salary arrears from the Taraba State Government.

Security operatives were deployed to the government house to deny the players access into the building. The gate of the government house has since been shut.

Despite being tear gassed, the players vowed to spend nights there until they are paid.

Monday’s protest occurs barely a month after a similar one by the players.

More details soon.
