According to inside sources, the whole episode which looked like a movie shot in Nollywood happened on the 3rd of May 2012 when a casual worker at the Honeywell Fine Foods office at Alausa Ikeja, Lagos, Mr. Promise Udoh Jackson, was crushed to death in the premises by one of the reckless truck drivers. National Enquirer gathered reliably that the deceased who was not well paid and has worked for years at Honeywell Noodles without being confirmed as a full staff was said to have slept by the truck after a harrowing long night’s job, and was still fast asleep, at about 5:30am in the morning, when the driver of the truck came, and without checking around, just started the vehicle, and rolled over him.
We gathered that they rushed him to the Lagoon hospital in Ikeja, but when they saw that the case was a critical one, they referred him to the Lagoon hospital Apapa, where he was confirmed dead on arrival. We learnt that the company, Honeywell Fine Foods, in order to save its face sent the Human Resource Manager to get in touch with the deceased’s guarantor, one Mr. Harry who used to work for MTN, they went over to his place at Allen Avenue Lagos, and told him what had happened and allegedly offered him and his roommate 500 thousand naira and 2 plots of land in Ogun state, for them to keep quiet over the issue.
When your soar away magazine got this story, we took our time to investigate the matter and we however located the Mr. Harry’s place at Allen Avenue Ikeja, but unfortunately we didn’t meet him, we only met his roommate who goes by the name Haruna. Haruna who claimed to be an ex-police officer, denied ever collecting any money whatsoever from anybody, but agreed that there was actually a time, when two men and two ladies, came from Honeywell regarding the death of Mr. Promise Udoh Jackson, that of a truth, they offered them some money but he refused to collect it, because he told his friend who is a lawyer and he warned him against collecting anything from them. We are still investigating, as efforts to reach anyone at Honeywell Fine Foods Limited, has been herculean. Please keep a date in our next edition for the concluding part of the story.
