Since the amount is only 16k you might be lucky to get a nairalander or nairalanders that will give you the 16k or more, don't take anything from the shop, you can decide to leave the man to God or as final resort drop his phone number here as someone adviced for nairalanders to show him some love which will inturn make him appreciate love and pay you your money.

this is his phone number 08132604893

Tell him that you will report him to village deity and if he doesn't give you the money in three days and that you are going to forfeit the money and take the matter to your village deity to handle.
Funny guy like you, no one takes any deity serious these days. Village deity used to be trusted in the days of our grandparents and great grandparents because they served them , today nobody is interested.

It’s obvious the CEO and his brother are not ready/willing to pay you.

It is sad to note that you stand no chance to engage them legally because no employment contract was established ab initio.

It is more disheartening that they know you have no means to seek and get redress from their misconduct.

My Advice:

Look elsewhere for your daily bread. And while you’re at it subtly inform the Chief ExecuTHIEF Officer, that your brother/uncle in the military is interested in the case.

Thanks. I would've move on, but I am totally broke, I just a poor fella trying to make means.

I wish I have someone, who can handle this issue for me, I wouldn't mind parting the money by 2.. as far I will get it.

16k

I was owed salary too straight out of secondary school working as a home tutor on a salary of 5k. Funny thing was, this was a rich family living in expansive mansion (or so I thought). Don't try to take anything from his shop, leave him to God. God will so bless that you will laugh over the fact that you were worried over 16k. And if you involve police you'll spend more than 16k.

Most private (small) companies treat their workers this way. I employed a young man as an IT personel mid February and he was scared I wasn't going to pay at the end of the month, but he was surprised when I did., anyway that's by the way

I'd suggest you involve a 3rd party, if you know his church sort his pastor and report him those kinda wicked men have special fears for their church daddies

Bro,

I suggest you do this

First get a lawyer ( preferably a friend or family member who can do it for free) to write a letter on your behalf.

In the letter they will inform your employer of plans to inform bet9ja head office, the Nigerian Police and a human rights organisation. Then give him a week deadline to make payment. Include your account details.

I'm sure he will pay you back out of fear


If you can not get a lawyer, write a letter to Bet9ja office then report to the nearest police station. Inform the officers that you are broke and you just need your money back. They will surely respond.

To get your money back you must catch him in a way he will never expect.

The only way to get your unpaid salaries is to involve the police or else kiss your unpaid salaries goodbye
Police are not debt recovery agency, the issue above has nothing to do with police. The issue between employee and his employer in regard to salary, can only be settle in law court.

You are wrong. It's a civil matter no doubt.

However the Police may get involved and they facilitate quick resolution.

Both parties will be invited and they settle the matter. Payment made and everybody is happy

Its an illegal act, in short 90% of Nigerians don't eve know the content of the law of the land. I repeat again, police is not debt recovery agency. They ar not power to do so by constitution. Its only the law court that can do that. Seeing police helping people to recover money or salary, doesn't mean its constitutionally right. Eve some people go to extend of hiring military men too, to do same. The relationship between the employee and his employer, irrespective the nature of the job is a legal contract. Which can only be interprete in a law court by the judiciary. The police belong to the executive arm.

Good day to you all.

Last year, I started working for this man in his bet store..

I worked for four months.. during the 2nd month he paid me my first salary.. after that we went on to the 3rd month, I asked for my second salary, he started giving me excuses on how his shop rent is due and needed to pay it first, that I should wait and give him some time he would pay. I said okay.

Fourth month reached, nothing was happening, at the end of the fourth month. I stopped work, I ask him to pay me the rest salary before I continue..

This man keep posting me till now.

He just handed the shop to his brother to start managing, I met his brother, his brother told me he would pay me.. later I called the brother, the brother was like "I talked to my brother, he said he will be the one to pay you"

I feel he is trying hard not to pay me.

I called the oga, he keep busying my call until he blocked it..
I wanted to use the police but no money for police matter..

The manager has be threatening to arrest me if I try to take anything from the shop..

Please I need you help, how can I have the money back?



Do not do anything rash or resort to self-help like fighting them, destroying anything or seizing their property. If you do, they have the right to invite the police and you will just see yourself in more trouble than you bargained for.

Get a lawyer to help you write a demand notice to your employer. A demand notice from a lawyer will reset their brain and if the lawyer is magnanimous enough, he might help you throw in a petition to the Commissioner of Police.

If you are in Lagos, send a PM and we will add this under our pro-bono cases.

By God's grace, all will be well to his Glory and Honour.

Shalom

Don't waste your money on any police. All the people saying involve police have not had any police case involving money before. Report him to his bigger friends or even his pastor.

I'm in a similar situation at the moment. I'm being owed March and April salaries as I type this.

It's a security guard job of N25,000 (twenty five thousand naira) monthly.

I've decided to quit the job till I'm paid. So sad.

For private security companies, this is quite common. I worked part time for one.

My first cousin's cousins who was a director was always thinking of ways to shortchange operatives. He'd find reasons reasons to deduct money from the peanuts the operatives were being paid.

Eventually, he was kicked out of the company for illegally running a 20 man location somewhere in the East, I think Enugu state.

After the sack, he set up his own firm. The only security operative who I personally know was locked up for threatening him for nonpayment of his wages. The owner by the way was a former security official. He has worked with the OBJ, IBORI and FAYOSE. I won't mention the security outfit.

Eventually his company disintegrated has it was poorly run. Worse, he abandoned his wife and 2 daughters and married a lady that had money. They had a child and she soon threw him out. His new wife was one of those very pompous ladies. I think all she wanted was the baby.

Worse, his first wife applied for Canadian immigration with their 2 children. She now overseas with the kids and he's is here. He wasn't included in the package as I'm sure it was done secretly.

I feel so sad for him cry cry grin grin grin
