Sex Slavery: Globacom Sacks Over 90 Married Women
Indigenous giant network provider, Globacom, has been caught in a wave of sex slavery as it reportedly sacked over ninety married women across its various establishments in the country.
ElombahNews was reliably informed by an affected lady that the company targeted only married women, leaving behind the young and vulnerable single ladies.
According to our correspondent, the telecommunication giants has gone as far as suppressing media stations to ensure that the story does not get to the public domain.
It was also gathered that the only television station that interviewed the affected ladies refused to publish the video.
Therefore, the affected women took the bull by the horn and have decided to tell their story by themselves.
The attached claims and video was sent by the spouse of one of the affected persons narrating how the spouse was unduly relieved of duty just because of marital status.
In a related incidence, a sacked female staff [names withheld] has dragged Globacom to court for for what she considered unjust termination of her service.
The sacked female workers pointed out that they were employed by Globacom between 2003 and 2008, and have individually put in between average of 7 to 15 years in the job.
She and her colleagues wondered why dedicated staff who have impacted positively on the fortunes of the company could be sacked with a wave of the hand on the flimsy reason bothering on their marital status.
She, therefore, instituted a N50 billion legal action against Glo at the National Industrial Court of Nigeria (NICN) via suit number (NICN/ABJ/75/2018.
Meanwhile, a concerned group, the Public Interest Litigation Initiative (PILI) had resolved to take up the matter in order to restore and enforce the fundamental human rights of the affected female staffs of the telecommunications company.
In that statement, the Executive Director of PILI, Prof. Adesoji Adesugba said:
“It is disheartening to hear that these particular set of female staff who have worked very hard to take the company to the height it has attained today could be treated in a needlessly reckless manner.
“We at PILI find this unacceptable and have taken a legal action to challenge this glitch.
“It is going to be a legal fight to the finish until and unless very urgent and responsible steps are taken by Globacom to restate them back to their various positions with full benefits in addition to paying damages to them for distorting their career path or progress.
The legal statement said the Claimants plead and rely on their various letters of employment as employees in the management cadres at Gloworld department, the retail arm of Globacom Limited with branches and outlets all over Nigeria.
He stated that the Claimants positions were immediately filled by single female and male staffs.
He also stressed that the Claimants contended that the purported termination of their employments by the defendants was unlawful.
They also aver that their rights as married women have been seriously trampled upon by the Defendants.
ElombahNews’ effort to hear the company’s version or response proved abortive as their computers said that the “Glo World” number 0805 557 2026 and “Glo World – Abuja 2” number 0805 557 6041 are unallocated.
