On January 6, 2017, FrieslandCampina WAMCO Nigeria PLC witnessed a fire outbreak in the condensed factory at its premises in Ogba Industrial Estate, Ikeja, Lagos State.

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.
