A group of protesters occupied the premises of Nicon Luxury Hotel in Garki Abuja today to protest nonpayment for goods and services owed by the owner of the hotel, controversial businessman, Jimoh Ibrahim.
The protesters arrived early to demonstrate on an auspicious day when the hotel was hosting a significant international conference. The group named Association of NICON LUXURY HOTEl SUPPLIERS said the proprietor owes them unpaid debt dating back to 2004.
It will be the second of such major strike against Mr. Ibrahim. The first demonstration hit his Lagos headquarters when former workers of the defunct Air Nigeria engaged in protest over their illegal dismissal and nonpayment of salaries.
SaharaReporters learns that some floors of the hotel remains uninhabitable, and Mr. Ibrahim cut corners in the running of the hotel.
