Immigration Job Seekers Protest, Paralyze Lagos Traffic [Photos]
Thousand of young job seekers invited to take an aptitude test by the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) have seized all roads leading to the National Stadium venue of the test in protest.
The applicants who said they were shortchanged by the Immigration Service are currently chanting anti- government songs insisting they wont be going home anytime soon.
Several of them said, ” after all, we have no jobs and, therefore, there is nothing to return home to do.”
They are also calling for the refund of N1,000 application fee taken from them to enroll for the NIS job screening test that did not hold in Lagos as planned.
At least 100,000 of them came to the 45,000-capacity National Stadium early today, with, the hope of gettin, a position out of the 3,000 job openings declared by the NIS but the screening exercise was cancelled.
Already 10 applicants has died in a stampede at the Abuja venue of the job screening of candidates for the NIS jobs.
