Recall the report that has been trending for some time now about 27-year-old William Ekanem who works with Bedmate Furniture Company, Magboro, Ogun State, and has been in pain after his spinal bone was allegedly damaged by his Chinese boss, identified as Master Wan.
Vanguard reported that Master Wan, who is skilled in kung fu, had demanded to see a bag of rice which Ekanem bought from a foodstuffs’ seller, identified as Iya Melo, on the premises of the company. But Ekanem challenged Master Wan for poking his nose into his personal business.
After forcefully checking the content, Ekanem said he was leaving when Master Wan allegedly gave him a kick in the back, which sent him sprawling on the ground.
The suspect was said to have stamped his foot on the victim before he was rescued by some other workers on the premises. Reports have it that Ekanem had not been able to walk well or stand straight. The victim said although the case was reported at the Ibafo Police Station, the Divisional Crime Officer allegedly took a N50,000 bribe from the Chinese company. He was said to have backed the company against the Uyo, Akwa Ibom State indigene, who was accused of exaggerating the assault.
The update on this matter is that the company has faulted the allegations of Ekanem, that his immediate boss, Master Wan, crippled him with kung fu kicks but instead claim that Ekanem, allegedly had a history of stealing property of the company and was blackmailing the firm.
According to Punch Metro, the company explained that he was caught a few weeks to the incident with some celotapes, a claim that Ekanem denied.
It added that a medical report from Beachland Specialist Hospital, Arepo, indicated that the 27-year-old only had pains in some parts of his body after falling during a scuffle with Master Wan, who wanted to search him.
View: So you see, the company is now claiming that Ekanem is even faking his injury. The man has been earning N34,000 for years and the “thank you” he gets from his boss is a Kung fu kick. What is your take on this matter?
