The Dangote Group has fired 109 of its workers at the Obajana Cement Company in Kogi State, after being found guilty of various offences.
The coordinator of the company’s Patrol Team, Abdulahi Magaji made the disclosure to journalists on Tuesday at the Obajana premises of the company.
He said the dismissed workers were among the 244 suspects arrested between May and November.
He said that another 115 workers were being remanded in prison custody pending the determination of their cases.
According to him, they include erring drivers, owners of illegal haulage, and those stealing the company’s properties among others.
He said; “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.
“We have pasted warnings clearly on the cab of all our trucks prohibiting carrying of goods and passengers apart from company’s products.
“We are calling on the law enforcement agencies to support the efforts of the Dangote Group in arresting those who break the laws of the company,’’.
