A Chinese modern day slave camp, right inside Nigeria.
This company is located at Umuahala, Obuzor Asa, in Ukwa West LGA of Abia State.
This company has over 1000 Nigerian workers, working under the most dehumanizing conditions ever known to mankind. They resume work as early as 6am and close as late as 7pm daily. Monday to Sunday.
NO OFFER LETTER.
NO EMPLOYMENT LETTER.
A worker can be employed today and be sacked that same day for no reason. Every day and minute in that company, could be your last, as a Nigerian worker.
There is no job security, or job guarantee. They will sack workers and chase them away with Army or police, never to return.
Just like a slave, and a slave master relationship.
Every Nigerian in that company is mandated to call their Chinese employers MASTER or MISTRESS. Failure to do that, attracts a direct sack.
Nigerians are violated and molested by their Chinese employers daily.
Male Nigerian workers are physically assaulted, while their female counterparts are sexually assaulted without any consequence.
Chinese MASTERS will use derogatory words on Nigerian employees, and you dare not talk back at them. Because the consequence is grievous. After the physical assaults you will get, you will still be sacked. Chinese MASTERS will boast of killing you, & getting away with it.
Nigerians are treated worse than second class citizens. The Chinese treat their Nigerian employees as lesser humans in their own soil.
For over 3 months and counting, Inner Galaxy Group has been holding workers on hostage because of covid19. They locked the gates, denying workers access to go home.
Workers are camped in a prison like accommodation provided by the company before now.
Cameras are all over the premises of the company, monitoring activities of workers daily. Workers can not gather themselves for any reason whatsoever. They can’t form Unions, they can’t protest or press on for any demands.
