Some angry Nigerian youths has destroyed a Chinese company in Ogun State for refusing to pay its workers after allegedly locking them inside their facility despite the stay-at-home order of the Federal Government following the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) in the country.
The angry workers of the company could be seen protesting their forced “detention” inside the Chinese factory in a video that has gone viral on the internet.
A worker, who took to Twitter, said they were held inside the company for 14 days of the lockdown without proper feeding and they’re now asking them to leave without any payment.
