Written by on March 18, 2024

A Chinese national, identified simply as Yespon, is currently on the run after allegedly using an electric shocker on one of his father’s employees, known as Kelvin Godwin, at a timber factory in Ijebu-Ode.

Report says  trouble started when Godwin, a factory worker, was suspected of stealing flour believed to belong to Yespon’s father, known as Yenchingin.

While an argument ensued between the two over the stolen flour, the absconding suspect was said to have drawn out the electric shocker and used it on Godwin, causing the victim to lose consciousness.

The victim, it was learnt, was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital for medical treatment by other factory workers, including Yespon’s father.

When contacted yesterday, the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Omolola Odutola, confirmed the incident and said the Obalende Divisional Police Headquarters had intensified efforts to arrest the fleeing suspect.
