They said they were in the employ of the school, and were on monthly salary but are owed three-month salary arrears.

They stated that efforts made by them to get their salaries from the proprietor including reporting him to the police, and Nasarawa State Education Inspectorate Office, Area 1, Masaka were futile.

The petitioners who were all in court yesterday alleged that the accused said that even if the school ran down, he had nothing to lose as he would turn it to a mini estate.

They prayed the court to help them recover their monies.

Magistrate Victor Manga, admonished Lugundaye to pay them their salaries if really he owed them, and adjourned the case to March 9 for hearing.
