Workers protest against Chinese Construction firm in Lagos

Workers of the Chinese Construction giant, Chinese Civil Engineering and Construction Corporation, CCECC,  who handled the reconstruction of the Mile 12-Ikorodu road are protesting  what they called the unlawful sack by the company.

Over 300 staff of the construction firm besieged its Majidun-Ikorodu office displaying placards and calling for reinstatement of their sacked colleagues.

Reconstruction work on the over 50-year-old road  which began in 2012 has reached completion stages as workers were laid off. The aggrieved workers however bemoaned the alleged arbitrary disengagement without compensation.
