The Federal Government has sealed an Ibadan-based factory, Expand Global Manufacturing Limited, where a 21-year-old student, Richard Gbadebo, died on July 28.
The factory located in Oluyole area of the city was sealed on Wednesday by officials of the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the deceased, who was a worker in the factory, was also a 300-level student of the University of Ibadan.
The deceased was reported to have slipped into a soap making machine and died during production.
Mr Femi Fatoki, the Federal Controller of Labour in Oyo State, said the factory was sealed based on findings from a preliminary investigation.
While assuring the people of the state to continue to actualise capital projects through budgetary allocation, said that rebuilding and renovation of Lekan Salami Stadium will commence in the weeks to come.
“We will continue to actualise named capital projects through budgetary allocation and have the additional option of carrying out other infrastructural projects outside of the budget using the Alternative Project Funding Approach. So you can look forward to other projects under this approach,” Makinde stated.
He expressed the readiness of his administration to put the state back on the path of economic growth by strategising on how to increase our spending on infrastructure.
