There was a tremendous outcry in Onitsha, Anambra State when various traders at the Electrical International Villa Market held a protest against a trader who gave his long-serving apprentice stipends.
After serving him for 9 years, the anonymous businessman handed his apprentice 100,000 naira as a token of appreciation.
However, some enraged men can be seen demanding retribution for what they consider to be the boss’s outright evil but the businessman was seen standing in front of his shop, observing the protesters’ demonstration.
“A young man served his boss for 9 years and got rewarded with N100,000. Igbo people are showing wickedness to their fellow Igbo. It is not good, this is a bad act. He worked as an apprentice doesn’t mean you will eat him up. You will settle the boy because he didn’t steal your money and your goods are never for once found missing.”
