Globus Bank

Lagos State Police Command has begun investigating the death of a female marketing employee of a Globus Bank branch in Ikorodu, Lagos State.

The employee Amarachi Ugochukwu was found dead in the bank’s restroom on Monday afternoon.

The 32-year-old is suspected to have drunk an insecticide.

Other members of staff began looking for her when the phone she left on her table kept ringing and she was not around to pick the calls.

Spokesman of Lagos State Police Command Benjamin Hundeyin said the case had been referred to the homicide section at the SCID.

“The case is now at the homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) in Yaba,” he told PUNCH.

Meanwhile, some friends of the deceased have paid tributes to her on social media.

An X user named Becky wrote, “Finding out that the banker who committed suicide was one of my roommates back in Hall 2, University of Benin, just made the whole thing sadder and closer to home. Amarachi was so calm and loved going to church a lot back then.”

Similarly, a Facebook user, Folusho Adebisi, in a post on Thursday, described the late female banker as a friendly, amiable, and hardworking lady who did multiple jobs to survive.

He wrote, “Tiwalade, my son, woke me up this morning to the terrible news trending online about a young lady, Amarachi Ugochukwu, a banker committing suicide.

“Amarachi was a friend of Tiwalade and a customer of his business, Donetsk Footwear Limited. I had met Amarachi on a few occasions when she came for deliveries at Donetsk Footwear during the festivities.

“Amarachi was a young lady, friendly, amiable, and hardworking, a lady cobbler that combined her stressful job of a banker with another stressful business of shoemaking and marketing. I read she left a suicide note complaining of a hard life, hard economy, etc.”
