The Kogi House of Assembly yesterday sealed the Dangote Cement factory, Obajana, following agitation by Kogi state indigenes on the questionable circumstances surrounding the acquisition of the company.

The lawmakers ordered the closure of the facility after an investigation into its operations allegedly revealed that no valid acquisition took place for the company.

Jubilant youths, who had trooped to the company on hearing the news of the closure, attempted chasing workers away, but were stopped by Kogi state government officials, who promptly waded into the matter to avoid damage.

The youths claimed that the company had neglected the host community from where it had been making billions, in spite of the fact that residents were dying from illnesses resulting from pollution.

The state legislature alleged that Dangote, upon invitation by the Assembly, requested for more time but did not appear at the House to show any evidence to the contrary.
