Trader bathes apprentice with acid, Victim detained for 3 months

An apprentice, identified simply as Ifeanyi, is in pain after his boss, identified simply as Anaayo, allegedly bathed him in acid and detained him for over three months without treatment at their place of residence in the Lekki area of Lagos State.

PUNCH Metro gathered that Anaayo, who owns Ayocity Surgicals, was taking stock of his goods at his shop in the Idumota area of the state sometime in November 2020 when he discovered that some items were missing.

Angered by the discovery, Anaayo allegedly summoned his apprentices, including Ifeanyi, and demanded an explanation for the missing goods.

It was learnt that when Ifeanyi and his co-apprentices, including the managers, could not give a satisfactory explanation for the missing goods, Anaayo was said to have told them that they would continue the discussion when they got home.

Speaking with PUNCH Metro, a businessman, Chijioke Emmanuel, whose shop is near Anaayo’s, said all the apprentices except Ifeanyi took to their heels after being interrogated by their boss, adding that Anaayo allegedly poured acid on the victim.
