The development comes days after the Kogi house of assembly ordered the sealing of the factory following agitations by indigenes who raised questions about the ownership of the company.

However, during an attempt to seal the factory on October 5, a shooting incident reportedly occurred.

The plant was eventually sealed off.

There were conflicting positions on the number of persons shot, while community leaders in the area had condemned the involvement of youths in the fracas at the factory, which was followed by the shooting.

Meanwhile, the Kogi state panel set up to look into the acquisition of the Obajana cement plant has said the purported transfer of the facility to Dangote Cement was not “proper”.
