Crippled Ogun Factory Worker: Ekanem eventually receives heavy Compensation

William Ekanem, who was crippled with Kung fu kicks by his immediate Chinese boss, Master Wan after a stern refusal to allow him access into his foodstuff has been paid a sum of N3m on Thursday by the firm where he suffered the injury.

With this recent development, the meeting earlier scheduled with representatives of the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment, the Chinese company and the parties involved in the incident has been called off.

According to our recent report, the 27- year -old Ekanem brought some foodstuffs he had purchased into the premises of the company sometime in April 2017 when he was confronted by Master Wan , who asked to see the contents of the bag. After allegedly forcing his way through the bag, the victim was given a kick in the back by Master Wan, who also stamped his foot on his chest.

In a fresh allegation, Bedmate said, Ekanem had a history of stealing the property of the company, including two cello tapes, a claim that Ekanem denied. The company ’ s lawyer, Ayo Durojaiye, said the victim injured himself on the day of the incident while struggling with Master Wan rendering the kung fu kick a false accusation.

He said a medical report from Beachland Hospital showed that Ekanem sustained minor injuries.

However, last Thursday the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment had intervened and called for a meeting among all the parties involved in the case. The meeting was rescheduled for this week Thursday ( yesterday) because Master Wan and Ekanem were not present at the first meeting which took place in Lagos.

According to Punch’s report, it was gathered that the company held a meeting on Wednesday with Ekanem, his lawyer and a human rights group, during which it agreed to pay the sum of 3 million Naira as damages.

A source who spoke on condition of anonymity said “ A cheque has been issued in Ekanem’ s name. With the development, the lawyer called the ministry to call off the meeting, which would no longer be necessary. ”

The victim ’ s lawyer, Emeruwa, and the company’ s lawyer, Durojaiye, in separate telephone conversations with our correspondent confirmed the development, saying the matter had been resolved. In a telephone conversation, Emeruwa said.
