Another day, another meaningless death in Nigeria.
20-year-old Chidera Uzoma started working for Errand 360 as a delivery guy and one morning, he discovered that the work bicycle he parked in front of his apartment was missing. He informed the company and they arrested and charged him in court, but promised to drop the case If he replaces the bike. Chidera replaced the bike but Errand360 refused to drop the case.
He was remanded at Ikoyi prison in March and was found dead on April 24th.
Ikoyi Prison said Chidera was sick for a while before he died. His family needs closure because the circumstances surrounding his death is mysterious.
A friend of the deceased called the family last week to inform them that the Chidera has passed away. The family contacted the Errand360 through the company’s official number gotten from the company’s official page. But the company denied that they neither sued or arrested
These are the owners of the company
Errand360 claims to be Nigeria’s foremost eco-friendly last mile logistics company, providing sustainable delivery alternatives for businesses to reach their consumers.
