Business Day (Nigeria) - - NEWS - REMI FEYISIPO

The fa­tal­ity at Ex­pand Global In­dus­tries Lim­ited Ibadan fac­tory premises in­volv­ing a col­league from an ex­ter­nal third-party com­pany, who was fa­tally in­jured in an in­ci­dent that took place re­cently, is un­for­tu­nate, ac­cord­ing to Aliyu Jib­ril, spokesper­son/ HR man­ager, Ex­pand Global In­dus­tries Lim­ited.

“Our on­site emer­gency team im­me­di­ately stopped all op­er­a­tions and promptly in­formed the rel­e­vant au­thor­i­ties of the in­ci­dent. The lo­cal au­thor­i­ties ar­rived on­site within min­utes to carry out the nec­es­sary in­ves­ti­ga­tions and safely trans­port the de­ceased to the morgue, where an au­topsy could be con­ducted,” Jib­ril said.

Ac­cord­ing to Jib­ril, the com­pany is shocked and sad­dened by this loss and our deep­est sym­pa­thies go out to the fam­ily and friends of the de­ceased. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the com­pany met with the fam­ily along with rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the stu­dent coun­cil to ex­press our deep­est con­do­lences, he said, say­ing we will con­tinue to en­gage with the fam­ily and pro­vide the nec­es­sary sup­port dur­ing this dif­fi­cult time.

Ex­pand Global In­dus­tries is work­ing closely with the po­lice and Min­istry of Labour to as­cer­tain the cir­cum­stances lead­ing up to this tragic in­ci­dent. “Both de­part­ments are pro­ceed­ing with ex­ter­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tions into this mat­ter and we are con­duct­ing our own in­ter­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the safety pro­to­cols ob­served. We un­der­stand that there may be queries from con­cerned stake­hold­ers to­wards this tragic in­ci­dent.
