A 300-level student of the Department of European Studies, Faculty of Arts, University of Ibadan, Gbadebo Richard, has died in an industrial accident in Ibadan, capital of Oyo State, on Tuesday.

SaharaReporters gathered that the accident happened at the Oluyole factory of Henkel Nigeria Limited, producers of WAW detergent and soap.

Twenty-year-old Richard, who was on night shift, was said to have fallen into one of the machines in the factory.

The other workers were not aware until they saw blood coming out through the other side of the machine.

“His family members were not informed by the company until an unknown number called them. So they mobilised to the company and blocked the road, about 30 police officers were called in to prevent disturbance.

"An ambulance later came and Richard’s father was allowed into the building. He later went with the body, packed in a plastic bag in the ambulance to the morgue at Teju Hospital without any of the staff of the factory,” a source told SaharaReporters.

The incident was also confirmed through a broadcast signed by President and Public Relations Officer of the faculty of Arts, University of Ibadan.

“It’s completely disheartening to announce the death of Mr Gbadebo Richard (300-level student) from the Department of European Studies, Faculty of Arts, University of Ibadan.

"Your fervor to become greater in life was cut short by your sudden death. Team Evolution uses this medium to sympathise with the family of our late Afasite who was active, effective and diligent in studies. We pray that God be with the family and wipe out similar occurrence,” the statement read.

Olugbenga Fadeyi, Oyo State Police Public Relations Officer, neither responded to calls nor replied to text messages over the issue.

So touching. I have experienced where one machine in such industry rubbished a worker's hand. I vomitted for a whole day, Crazily enough, the industry calls it negligence and nothing can you do about it.

This company as I learnt, was owned by the wife of Late Former Governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi (Florence)

So sad, a young guy trying to hustle in this pandemic period to earn a living cry

Just trying to picture what the lad went through.
R.I.P lad Nigeria failed him. If it was a sane country that young boy should be at home taking online courses not working with heavy duty machine he has little or no knowledge about.

I was so devasted when i heard the news, currently they are airing the case in a radio station, and everybody are contributing their opinion for justice to prevail.
But can any justice bring back the life of an innocent guy.?
I pray God will grant his family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.

Branch manager of the so called company are earning more than 3.5M in a month. I couldn't believe it that the manager still have the audacity to slash out of the casual workers daily allowances, From 5K to 1.5k.
God who cursed this country. Heal our land.

I've had my own share of the terrifying experiences too, they were very gory I tell you. Right in front of my eyes while working for a Pharmaceutical company, a colleague lost three of his fingers. He was blamed for 'negligence' and was sacked because he wasn't capable of working anymore.

It's a really saddening news and it is high time the government take a punitive measure to make sure these manufacturing companies quit the usage of casual workers as slaves, without providing them protective equipment . The company should be sanctioned for their obvious negligence that culminated into the painful demise of this young man.

Rest in peace.

This is disheartening, may his soul find eternal rest.

Justice for him is all that matters now because some of those companies always take their casual staff for granted.
