Staff at Dangote Cement staged a protest in front of Dangote Group’s office in Ikoyi, Lagos on Thursday.
“So sad how staff are being pushed at gunpoint to forcefully collect termination letter without notice after they are due for confirmation. Where does Dangote want 900 employe(sic) to start from in this harsh economy after being enslaved for months without d payment of their benefits,” a twitter user Teejay (@tee_baba01), who shared photos of the protesters wrote.
Owned by Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, Dangote Cement operates in Nigeria and 14 other African countries. Its Obajana Cement Plant is one of the single largest cement plants in the world with a combined capacity of 10.25MMTPA.
