It is alleged that a group of soldiers shot seven people at the Dangote sugar company in Gwayana, Adamawa State, owned by Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote.
It was gathered that soldiers opened fire on the workers around 5 pm on Thursday 15th July 2021.
The facility situated not too far from the state capital, Yola, was embroiled in tension as workers protested before the soldiers were deployed to the scene.
According to the report, the soldiers dispatched for the illegal operation were hired by the management of the sugar company to chase them away.
The soldiers, who reportedly came to the sugar company in four Toyota Hilux Vans, allegedly left their duty post at Numan bridge.
Dangote sugar company is yet to issue a statement on the issue.
