Ex-Konga CEO didn’t d!e of su!cide – Family


Former Chief Executive of e-commerce platform, Konga, Nick Imudia did not commit su!cide, a statement from his family said on Sunday

But the family is unable to disclose the cause of his d3ath, but said investigation was still ongoing by the police to ascertain the cause of his d3ath.

Imudia d!ed on Thursday in a case that the police said was suicide. He was 45 years at the time of his d3ath.

But a statement from the family on Sunday said it was unhappy with the unprofessional manner the media had wrongly characterised the reporting of Nick Imudia’s death as su!cide.

The family said this was also supported by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police’s office that had vowed to investigate the sudden death of Nick, saying neither did Nick called his brother in America with instructions on how to distribute his wealth, nor placed a call to his daughter with any instructions.

The family queried: “How come the news was reported so hastily (less than 3 hours from his death) before his family members even knew about it – and the medical team was still trying to resuscitate him at the hospital? The Imudia family wonders!”

The statement said Nick never showed any sign of stress and was not diagnosed as depressed at any point, saying the thought of suicide in the manner portrayed and hastily reported by the news media was suspect.

According to the statement, Nick was full of life and that people who worked closely with him or met him in the last hours prior to the incident surrounding his d3ath were shocked with the media attributing his d3ath to ‘su!cide’.

The family added that at his prime age and the level of his achievements, people who knew Nick well were all shocked and did not accept the characterisation of his d3ath as su!cide.

The statement said members of Nick’s family did request the media and the general public to allow them to grief their loved one without any unfounded rumour of the circumstances surrounding his d3ath.
