Former Konga CEO, Nick Imudia Commits Suicide | MarvelTvUpdates

Former CEO of Nigerian e-commerce company Konga and current CEO of solar energy firm D.light, Nick Imudia, has died by suicide.

Imudia allegedly jumped from the balcony of his Lekki apartment in Lagos on the night of June 25.

Before making the jump, he allegedly called his US-based brother to give him instructions on how to distribute his wealth should anything happen to him.

He also called his young daughter from a previous relationship and told her he would always be there for her and that all she needed to do was to look in the sky and she would see him.

His friends, family and associates are in shock as to why he would commit suicide. No one is sure why he took his own life.

Imudia, from Ika South Local Government Area (LGA) of Delta State, had previously been married to the mother of his daughter. The marriage ended due to irreconcilable differences.

Before stepping down as Konga CEO in 2022, Imudia, alongside Leo Ekeh, was credited for transforming Konga from near collapse to profitability within four years.

They launched strategic verticals including Konga Logistics, Konga offline retail chain, KongaPay, Konga Travel, Konga Health, and Konga Food.

Imudia joined Konga in 2018 following its acquisition from previous majority owners Naspers and AB Kinnevik. He played a crucial role in revitalising Konga into a profitable and trusted e-commerce brand.

Before Konga, Imudia was the Regional Director of TCL/Alcatel for two years and the Managing Director of Nokia West, where he worked for over 17 years.

He has lived and worked in the USA, Finland, and Singapore, gaining recognition for his expertise in operational excellence and process management.

His family are yet to make an official announcement concerning his death and burial arrangements, as of the time of filing this report.
