The management of Learn Africa, the nation’s foremost educational publishers, received with shock, like other Nigerians, the unfortunate death of late Mrs. Ronke Shonde, who died during an alleged domestic scuffle with her husband a couple of weeks back. A statement by the company said, “While Learn Africa commiserates with family of the deceased as an organisation that values human life above any other thing and has utmost respect for family values, it is equally pertinent to debunk the news making the rounds that late Shonde and her alleged secret lover, Kayode Oluokun, were employees of Learn Africa.
Nothing could be farther from the truth. For record purposes, the two were former staff of the company but both of them had disengaged from the organisation in March this year. While the late Shonde left our organisation on March 8th, Oluokun ceased to be our staff sinceMarch the 10th. The implication of this is that as at the time of the unfortunate and untimely death of the late Mrs. Shonde, the duo were no longer employees of the company.
