Richard Gbadebo's Death: FG Orders Immediate Seal Up Of WAW Factory by ijustdey: 9:38pm On Aug 05, 2020
THE Federal Government has ordered the immediate seal off an Ibadan-based factory, Expand Global Manufacturing Limited, makers of WAW detergent, where a 21year-old Richard Gbadebo died in the course of duty.

The factory located in Oluyole area of the city, was sealed on Wednesday by officials of Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment.

Gbadebo, who, until his death on July 28, was a 300-level student of the University of Ibadan.

The deceased, who was a worker with the factory, a contracting firm with Expland Global, was reported to have slipped into a soap making machine and died during production, while on night shift.

While speaking, the Federal Controller of Labour, Federal Ministry of Labour and Productivity, Oyo State Office, Mr Femi Fatoki, said the factory was sealed-up based on findings from a preliminary investigation.

He said: “Immediately we got knowledge of the accident, we came for a report. We came here and we could not do more.”

“But despite that, we are able to put up a preliminary investigation and it was based on the preliminary investigation that we ordered the sealing up of the factory.”

“And this order is in conformity with section 38 of the Nigeria Factory Act. It has been identified as a dangerous workplace and the record said we should seal it up,” he said.

Fatoki further noted that the factory has been sealed up and it can’t operate any longer until the company the order was lifted.

A staff of the ministry, Dr. Adaora Obu, while also speaking, said the preliminary investigation was inconclusive, saying investigation is still ongoing.

She said that some contraventions have been identified which they have informed the company manager in writing.

“We are still investigating, looking into the autopsy report and all that. So, when we finish with the investigation, I am sure there would be a statement,” she said.

Nice move. When you gamble with workplace safety, you have effectively placed people's lives on a bet.

Another effect of putting foolish people in government.
That a factory worker dies does not prove anything one way or the other
and shutting down the factory to appear "tough" to the public could only
have been ordered by economic illiterates.

I suppose they expect the factory to just continue operation a few months
after the suspension.

Verdict: This is commendable, but will affect other families who are staffs in the company, things won't be funny for them anymore. I would have advised the company compensate the family in cash and then the government force them to put in place safety measure to avoid such Hazard in the future... Na Guiness own worse, those ones dey slaughter workers and them nor dey fit cry out.. This country still have a long way to go...

What a sad and terrible way to die.
May God console his family.
RIP Richard.

WAW, one of the detergents with the best advert on TV. It's quite unfortunate. Could it be that the company did not put up proper safety measures knowing fully well that soap chemicals make the ground slippery or there was more to it than we know.

The FG should do the proper thing and not throw more families into poverty cos their investigation can take another ten years.

Eyah


They should fine them and punish who ever is responsible for negligence,

Closing a factory that employs hundreds of people who use the salary to feed their families is not advisable at this period

RIP to the guy. There should be more safety measures around these working places as most of these deaths are avoidable scenarios and shouldn't be overlooked.
Meanwhile, the FG will be doing gra gra Upandan like they care about the common man, at the end, don't be surprised if all they can do is to extort the company and boom, it's business as usual again.
