A yet-to-be known Chinese company in Ogun State has locked its Nigerian workers inside its premises, not allowing them leave despite a lockdown order instituted by President Muhammadu Buhari in Lagos, Ogun and Federal Capital Territory following the outbreak of Coronavirus in the country.
the angry workers were seen protesting their forced ‘detention’ inside the Chinese factory located at the Ibese area of Ogun State by destroying items within the company.
Spokesperson for the police in Ogun, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said it was an issue between the Chinese company and its workers.
He said, “Nobody is attacking anyone. What happened was a dispute between the workers and the management of that company.
“The workers said since the lockdown started, the management of the company did not allow them to go out of the company; that they locked them inside. So that was what sparked the protest.
“It is not as if members of the public are attacking the company.”
