Chaaban, who is the Supervisor at the Labadi branch of the Marwako Restaurant reportedly grabbed the head of the lady and dipped her face into a blended pepper.

Chaaban after the act subsequently locked her up with the burning hurting eye preventing her colleagues to rescue her from the situation.

Reacting to the disturbing news on Accra-based Citi FM, the Wa Central MP decried the act while calling on employers to respect their workers.

He said:"It is not a promise to do anything but to ensure that this issue is followed to the later. So many of this have happened in this country.

"So many of our compatriots have suffered under the hands of people who don't treat them as if were in a country with laws.

"I have about some Indian person who maltreated and nearly killed a Ghanaian. I have heard about a Lebanese who did same to a Ghanaian, I have heard another today about another Lebanese who did that. This should not happen in this country.

"We have laws in this country, we have laws of engagement. We have laws about how employees and employers relate; Labour law.

"So you don't just treat somebody, attack her personality or his personality just because they are working for you.

This situation that has resulted into an employee being treated this way, turned her face and put into hot pepper, locked her in a room is unacceptable.

Mr Pelpuo also urged the police to pursue the matter to the latter by making the perpetrator face the full rigour of the law.

"This thing must stop. There must be some deterrent and the deterrent is that the laws that are against theses things must be allowed to work."
