The ongoing controversy between Julius Berger and its employees have taken a new twist as the construction giant has insisted it paid all relieved staff their entitlements.
It also dismissed claims its sacked workers were relieved unlawfully and without regard to Nigerian laws.
Only recently, some staff of the company had accused the construction giant of willfully disobeying a court order and using the Nigerian police to forcefully throw them out of the company premises.
The protest by security staff of the company was to demonstrate what  they called a disregard to their rights as employees of the company after many years of service.

Some of them claimed that during the protest, the police used maximum force, arresting some and inflicting bodily injuries on others.
A visit to the company to verify the claims of the sacked workers however saw the construction giant tell their own side of the story claiming they were following a federal government directive.

They claimed that the disengagement process was done without any malicious intent and the company fulfilled all laws required of it.
The sacked employees have continued to cry foul over the incidence; however Julius Berger is standing on its claims that it has not disobeyed any Nigerian law. All eyes will be on the court case which comes up for hearing on the 3rd of December.
