From Kwesi Alfred Adams, Takoradi
The expatriate Managing Director (MD) of the Takoradi Flour Mill, Thierry Loupiac, had a rude shock of his life when he was reportedly chased out of office yesterday by angry workers of the company.
Available information indicates that the workers earlier approached their MD in a friendly manner and asked him to leave, but the Frenchman turned down the request.
This infuriated the workers who applied force and dragged him out of his office.
Some of the workers told The Chronicle that Mr Thierry Loupiac does not respect them.
This, they claimed, compelled their union executives to hold a meeting, after which a decision was taken to walk him out of his office, which they carried out yesterday.
The Chronicle heard that but for the timely intervention of the police, a different story would have been told, as Loupic did not take kindly to the action of the workers.
Management has, as at the time of filing this report, not commented on the development.
The Union Chairman, Mr Gideon Aryetey, later addressed the workers and advised them to go back to work and not to cause any confusion, since they had achieved their aim of getting Thierry Loupiac out.
Police personnel drawn from the SWAT Command, for the meantime, have taken over security at the company.
