This comes after angry workers besieged the office of the managing director, Thierry Loupiac, and removed him from his office.

The action was taken in the morning of Wednesday, July 10, 2019, and he was led to a police station.

Per a report by Starrfm.com.gh, a union member stated Loupiac initially refused to leave his office but was soon overpowered and driven out of the company’s premises.

“When I return from the police station I will ensure that you are all dismissed for taking this uncivilized action, idiot and poor Ghanaians,” the embattled man is alleged to have told the workers.

The union chairman, Gideon Aryetey, later advised the workers to resume their duties and refrain from causing confusion as they have achieved their aim.
