Industrial Accident: Steel Foundry Explains Workers’ Death

An Ogijo, Ogun State-based steel manufacturing industry, African Foundries Limited, explained issues surrounding the unfortunate death of three of its factory workers in what it described as a case of industrial accident.

The company, while responding to enquiries by our correspondent, rebutted claims that four or more people died in the incident, saying the victims were three factory workers who were injured when molten metal poured on them while taking their bath in a restricted area on its premises.

Uche Iwuamadi, Executive Director of African Foundries Ltd, while explaining to The Nation that the company has taken steps to resolve all issues arising from the unfortunate incident amicably, regretted that lives were lost to the splash of liquid metal from the factory furnace.

“The liquid metal splashed accidentally and touched three of the factory workers who had already closed from work, but were taking their bath in an open place in a restricted part of the premises. They were injured in the process and rushed to a nearby hospital in Ikorodu, where they later died.

“Consequently, the local staff, in conjunction with hoodlums within the factory ambience, went on rampage, which led to destruction of the company’s property and other valuables, including some cash. But in spite of all the damages, we immediately initiated efforts to pacify relatives of the deceased as we are saddened by the unfortunate loss of their loved ones. A lot of progress has been made in these efforts,” he said.
