No
casualties were recorded in the process as immediate action was taken to
safeguard the lives of employees on duty by evacuating them. Only the conveyor
area of the condensed factory was affected through a mass conveyor carrying
empty cans to the filling room.
Corporate Affairs
Director, Mrs. Ore Famurewa explained in a press statement issued on
Friday: “The fire outbreak which occurred
at around 1:10pm was contained by 1:55pm. The fire was caused by electrical
malfunction in the conveyor section”.
“We commend our employees for showing high commitment and
safety leadership in organizing themselves during the fire. In all this,
FrieslandCampina WAMCO operations were not disrupted by the incident. As
always, we ensure the safety and security of our employees as high priority”.
“We appreciate the
Lagos State Fire Service, FCWAMCO Safety Team, the Manufacturers Association of
Nigeria fire team and nearby corporate organizations like Guinness Nigeria for
their rapid response to curtail the fire outbreak.  We thank all our
stakeholders for their show of concern,”
Famurewa said.
