A staff of Shoprite in Akure identified as Jumoke Kehinde has reportedly committed suicide days after she was allegedly suspended from work.
An undisclosed source revealed that Kehinde was found dead on New Year’s eve at her apartment in Kajola area along Oda-road, Akure.
It was learnt that the deceased was suspended from work because she reported late for work.
The source said;
“It is normal that anyone who comes late should wait outside before they are allowed in and be given a suspension.
“She was seen arranging her table getting ready for the day’s sales as she looked happy but later left the mall at about 11 am after receiving the suspension letter.
“At about 4 pm, a distress call was received in the office that she was not feeling fine. One of the management staff went to check on her. Kehinde was found on the floor of her room shaking while her body was oozing with odour of the poison she took. Although, no empty can was found anywhere as she was rushed to the hospital.
“After some time at the hospital, she was declared dead. One of her relatives said she did not show any sign of depression.
“She was given a suspension for coming late that day. She was told to go home. After then she went back home.
“We all know that when you come late you will be given a suspension for a few days without payment.
“I don’t see any reason why such an issue would cause her to kill herself by committing suicide.”
While Ondo Police spokesman ASP Tee-Leo Ikoro could not be reached for comments, police sources, however, said her body has been deposited in a morgue while investigation has commenced unravelling what led to her suicide.
