A member of staff from This Day newspaper walks past a delivery van as workers barricaded the office due to non payment of salaries in Lagos, Nigeria, Friday, May 10, 2013. Known more for bringing in celebrities and smiling in photographs next to former Western leaders, a flamboyant Nigerian newspaper publisher now faces a challenge from his most vocal critics _ his own employees. Workers have barricaded the front of This Day newspapers in Lagos, hoping to force publisher Nduka Obaigbena into paying them as much as four months’ worth of back salaries due to them. Back pay disputes often hit industries in Nigeria, a country where steady paying jobs remain few, but this crisis has hit a man politically connected to the nation’s ruling elite, the second such major business figure to be stung in recent months.
