Viral videos trending online shows some casual workers protesting unresolved wages as they set ablaze a Chinese company’s vehicle in Ogun state.

Things have begun to get out of hand in cities like Lagos and Ogun where the presidential lockdown order is being significantly enforced due to the high incidence of COVID-19 cases. Just recently, we got reports of a rowdy protest by some unsatisfied Casual workers of a Chinese company at “Guandong” Free Trade Zone in Ogun state.

A video in the report even showed that the angry workers burnt down one of the company’s vehicles while they also reportedly damaged other properties.

COVID-19: Casual workers set ablaze Ogun-based Chinese company’s vehicle in violent protest over mistreatment

Digging further into this report, it was recorded that the Chinese company allegedly locked these Nigerian casual workers within its premises since the presidential COVID-19 lockdown began. Unfortunately, this company still took things too far by not settling some wages for these aggrieved casual workers. This according to the reports had led the unsatisfied workers to such a violent protest.

Below is the video showing the rowdy protest of the aggrieved Ogun casual workers;

Isn’t it funny that people are still talking about how Nigerians are currently being mistreated in China but even here in the country; a Chinese company is still maltreating Nigerians?

According to the reports, the PRO of Ogun State police command, Abimbola Oyeyemi has confirmed this incident to be true and has also stated that these workers are now settled. The Police PRO also mentioned that there was no recorded casualty during this protest and the area has is now back to its normal state of calmness as before.

This COVID-19 pandemic is undoubtedly affecting quite a lot of companies in Nigeria today as the lockdown keeps disrupting normal daily activities in most big cities. We have even featured a post that discusses how Coronavirus threatens Nigeria’s automotive industry, particularly at this time.

We do hope this COVID-19 crisis ends soon in Nigeria so that things will be back to the normal state before a huge economic crash hits the nation.
