Radio Report: Group seeks compensation for casual worker

A non-governmental organisation, Centre for the Defence of Human Rights and Democracy in Africa,  is planning to sue the Federal Government over the case of a 28-year-old-man who lost his right hand while working for an Indian firm in Lagos and was reportedly denied compensation because he was a casual worker.

Speaking through its secretary, Professor Maurice Fangnon, the NGO blamed the ordeal of the youngman and numerous casual workers on  the country’s labour laws, which he said are not only weak, but also subjecting workers to poverty, intimation and exploitation by employers.
