Traditional ruler of the Ibeju Lekki area of Lagos
state, Oba Olumuyiwa
Ogunbekun has urged
Nigerians to support the entrepreneurial spirit of the President of Dangote
Group, Aliko Dangote, rather than sponsor malicious and false stories about his
person and his companies.
The Oba urged well-meaning Nigerians to pray for
the success of Dangote Refinery and Petrochemicals as it will further open-up
Lagos and get thousands of its youth off the street.
Debunking claims that a protester was shot dead in
the Dangote Refinery, early this week, he said the reports of his chiefs and
even his security personnel were to the contrary and that nobody was shot, not
to talk of being dead at the refinery.
The Monarch said it was true that some casuals
workers protested against the contractors that employed them, but that the
issue was resolved when the management of Dangote Refinery stepped in and also that
he was very surprised to see online media reports that Policemen shot and
killed a protester in his domain.
Said he: "It is a lie. I was shocked to see the
report in social media that a protester was shot and killed in my domain. It is
true that some workers, belonging to some contractors of Dangote Refinery
protested, but none of them was shot, not to talk of being killed. Nigerians
should honestly pray for Aliko Dangote for his massive employment drive across
"I am happy that this refinery will employ
thousands of the youths in my area, I am so very positive and can't wait for
both the fertilizer and petrochemical plants to start productions in full
It would be recalled that Lagos State Police
Command also yesterday refuted reports that a construction worker at the
Dangote Refinery, Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos, was killed by a policeman, saying the
story was created by mischief makers in a bid to cause confusion.
Dangote Refinery also dissociated itself from the
protest, maintaining that it was embarked on by staff of sub-contractors and
not its workers.
In a statement, Lagos State police spokesman,
Muyiwa Adejobi, said nobody was shot by the police, insisting that the protest
was peaceful and that the protesters were addressed and they later dispersed.
