Cross River State pensioners blocked the Murtala Mohammed Highway in Calabar metropolis to protest the non-payment of their benefits to them by the state government since 2014.

They arranged chairs and sat on the two lanes of the road so that the state will feel their pains.

The pension being owed by the state government was put at over N35bn.
