Ajaokuta (kogi) — ONE person was feared dead and several others
wounded, yesterday, in Ajaokuta when aggrieved workers of the
multi-billion Naira Ajaokuta Steel Company (ASCL) took to the major
road in a violent protest over non-payment of their outstanding wages.
The ASL workers protest is coming barely a month after members of
the House of Representatives Commitee on Steel undertook a working tour
to the complex.
