Henkel makers of Waw detergent, has released a statement on the horrific death of Richard Gbadebo, said to be a 300 Level student of the University of Ibadan crushed to death inside the Ibadan detergent factory of the German company.

Henkel operates worldwide in three business areas: Adhesive Technologies, Beauty Care, and Laundry & Home Care.

The late Richard Gbadebo was horrendously sawed into two by a machine inside the Waw detergent factory. The upper half of Richard’s body was crushed totally, while the other half has now been released by the company and taken to the mortuary.

In its statement, Henkel apologised for reacting late, particularly in contacting the late Richard’s family and promised to investigate the cause of the accident.

“The tragic accident shakes us & we assure you we do everything we can to clarify its cause. Our deepest sympathy goes to Richard’s family. We are in contact with them & provide the necessary support in this difficult time.

“Out of respect, we do not make any further statement. We apologize for the late reaction. It was important for us to personally console his family before we comment on the incident on public channels,” the company said on its Twitter handle.

Several reactions have trailed the incident on the social media, including calls for prompt government investigation and appropriate sanctions on the company for negligence.
