The deceased, according to available information, was reportedly crushed by the same forklift truck in the course of its operation while on night shift, in the early hours of Tuesday.

CDWR Coordinator in Oyo State, Comrade Abiodun Bamigboye, who confirmed the death of the deceased, also called on the state leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) to commence a campaign against casualisation and poor working conditions across workplaces in the state.

Bamigboye, in a statement made available to newsmen, alleged that the working conditions of contract workers in the company are poor as they earn between N800 and N925 daily.

He called on the leadership of NLC and TUC to come up with a holistic programme of action to commence a serious campaign against casualisation and other indecent labour practices in private companies across the state.
