William Ekanem, an employee at Bedmate Furniture Company, Magboro, Ogun state, has been unable to walk after his spinal bone was allegedly damaged by Master Wan, his Chinese boss.
Wan, who is reportedly skilled in kung fu, had demanded to see a bag of rice which Ekanem bought from a foodstuff seller, identified as Iya Melo, on the premises of the company.
Ekanem, 27, had reportedly challenged the Wan for snooping in his personal business.
After forcefully checking the content, Ekanem said he was leaving when 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 Ekanem was rescued by some other workers on the premises.
Since the incident, which happened in April, Ekanem had not been able to walk well or stand straight, according to NAN.
