There are expectations on the probe of the death of Richard Gbadebo, an undergraduate who died at Henkel – Expand Global Industries Limited (EGIL) in Ibadan.

The deceased was a 300-level student of the Department of European Studies, Faculty of Arts, University of Ibadan (UI).

He died in July 2020 in the Oluyole factory of the company. Henkel – EGIL are the producers of WAW detergent and bar soap.

The late Richard got casual work at Henkel – EGIL during the ASUU strike/COVID-19 lockdown in 2020.

The 22-year-old reportedly fell into one of the machines while working the night shift.

The workers were unaware until they saw blood pouring out through the other side of the machine.
