There are strong indications that over 600 Nigerian casual workers may have been locked-down in a manufacturing company owned and run by some Asian staff located in Surulere area of Lagos.
Gbenga Komolafe, General Secretary Federation of Informal Workers’ Organizations of Nigeria (FIWON), dropped this hint today during a telephone interview with www.csomedia.com.ng.
Komolafe said in the last 24 hours, he has been bombarded by calls from the workers pleading that they be rescued from the lockdown so that they could go home and prepare their children for school.

The FIWON scribe however said that he petitioned the National Human Rights Commission on the matter and was called by authorities of the commission to acknowledge the receipt of the petition with a promise to handle the matter
