Sept 14, 2015 – Pictures: Protest In Lagos As Indian-Owned Lacasera Closed Down Business, Sacked All Workers
Indian-owned Lacasera Company Plc has closed down her business in Nigeria.
Today over 700 workers were sacked by the company who described her employees as hoodlums.
The sack notice, dated September 14 and addressed to all members of staff, stated that
“as a result of the unwarranted breaking-in and invasion of our business premises on September 11, we cannot guarantee the well-being of our employees from hired hoodlums and their collaborators.
“As a result of this unprovoked act of vandalism, we are unable to continue operations under this circumstance. Unfortunately, we regret to inform all our staff of their immediate disengagement.”
Mr Idowu Adelakun, the state Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), told NAN that the act of calling labour officials hoodlums was wrong and vowed that labour would not allow the company to function until the matter was resolved.
Lacasera, a beverage company owned by three Indian businessmen started production in Nigeria back in 2000.
