The deceased student was said to be on a night shift.<br><br>Nylon was said to have rolled round his hand and in the process of trying to detach himself, the nylon drew him into the machine, which was said to have crushed him.<br><br>The mild drama occurred, when officials of the Department of Pollution Monitoring and Quality Control of the ministry, led by Dr Olanrewaju, got to the factory at Oluyole Estate Extension, to seal it to pave way for investigation.<br><br>It was learnt some of the workers resisted governments move by holding them hostage for about 30 minutes, before the State Commissioner of Police, Nwachukwu Enwonwu, intervened and got them released.<br><br>Olanrewaju said: The intention was to talk to them, not necessarily to disgrace them, as they need to be producing under a very safe environment.
