Transcop Hotel Workers Revolts; Shut Down Lifts and Trap Guests inside Over Unpaid Salaries

It was gathered today from Calabar  that angry staff of the Transcop Hotel (Metro Hotel) a popular 5-star hotel, took laws into their hands and held the entire hotel to ransom on Wednesday.

There was pandemonium in the entire premises as the maintenance staff were said to have shut down power to the entire building, thus trapping several guests and senior members of the hotel inside lifts. They are said to be protesting over non payment of their salary and allowances for several months.

Those who did not make it into the hotel before the protest commenced were locked outside, leading to what a source described as total confusion. It took the efforts of a combined team of security personnel before the situation was brought under control. Normalcy have returned to the area.

Also, we learnt that the security personnel pleaded with the workers and got a commitment from the management of the big hotel that something will be done immediately to pay the workers part of their money.
