Workers of the Chinese Construction company, Chinese Civil Engineering and Construction Corporation (CCECC), who handled the reconstruction of the Mile 12-Ikorodu road have down tools.

The workers, according to reports reaching Daily Independent, are protesting unlawful termination of appointments by the company.

On Wednesday, May 6, 2015, over 300 workers of the company 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 lamented the alleged arbitrary disengagement without compensation.
