Dangote Group Sacks 109 Workers

The Dangote Group has dismissed 109 workers at its Obajana Cement Company in Kogi State, after being found guilty of various offences, Mr Abdulahi Magaji has said.

Magaji, the Coordinator of the company’s Patrol Team, announced this to newsmen on Tuesday at the Obajana premises of the company.

He said the dismissed workers were among the 244 suspects arrested between May and November.

According to him, they include erring drivers, owners of illegal haulage, and those stealing the company’s properties among others.

He said that other 115 workers were being remanded in prison custody pending the determination of their cases.

“I am happy to inform you that we have arrested and recovered five stolen trucks; but unfortunately, the products have been stolen.

“It is interesting to note that one of the kingpins, Samaila Yakubu, who specialised in stealing our trucks in collaboration with some drivers and buyers, has also been arrested.

“It is this group that has been terrorising our trucks in the South East and South South axis," Magaji, a former Commissioner of Police said.

He said that the President of Dangote Group, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, had directed that misconducts by drivers should be reduced to the barest minimum.
