The National Industrial Court, Abuja, on Friday ordered the Kogi State Government to pay a civil servant, Ameh Onoj, whose salary was stopped in March 2014.
Onoja had approached the court to seek redress when he was told that his salary was stopped because he had attained the compulsory retirement age.
Justice David Isele in his judgment, held that evidence before the court showed that the claimant had not reached the mandatory retirement age of 60. Isele also said neither has the claimant spent 35 years in service as required by civil service rule before retirement.
The court went further to order the restoration of the claimant’s monthly salary of N153,298 from March, 2014 till date within one month.
