Jumia Staff Dies On The Job

 Oh Dear!






''Hello Stella,

Please please please keep my identity anonymous.

I am a staff of Jumia Nigeria and you need to know what is going on in this slave trade company.

People work in the worst working environment ever. Staff being kept in the warehouse where the working condition killed a staff in the office yesterday 08/02/2016. His name is Ola, set to marry his pregnant fiancée next month.

The warehouse is extremely hot, very unbearable, they make staff work for 12hours straight without sitting down. How do you let people stand packing and processing items in a hot warehouse for 12hours? And the pay is so small but you know people have basic needs and responsibilities then they take up these jobs.

The government needs to do something about this because this company is here to use people and kill them. No more health insurance, they cut down the health insurance whereby you can only treat headache in the hospital and that is it. They cut down salaries and other benefits. 


Meanwhile the expats live in 70million naira house on ikoy, lekki, vi with salaries from 2.5million naira and all. They live the lives of the Rick Nigerians, come to work, cannot perform and let the locals do all the work. Then the locals end up dead! A staff died on his way to Lagos from our porthacourt office while bringing items to Lagos, imagine them sending an email to the whole staff to donate money for his family. Why can't the company pay the family why ask is donate?

 If you can afford to live in 70million naira house. We need our government to fight for us, it is becoming unbearable. How can a warehouse not have health and safety rules and training for staff, no sickbay, no first aid. That guy would have survived yesterday if there was a first response. He wa simply gasping for breath and died before he got to isalu hospital, bearly 10minutes from the warehouse off acme road. 

Nigerians please help us! Government please help us! 

There are no jobs out there and these ones are killing people! 

Scorned staff of Jumia Nigeria.


*RIP Mr Ola...

    1. If the environment or the condition of your working place isn't favourable, please speak up or quit.
      I know there is no job in nigeria, but that doesn't mean you should work yourself 2 death.
      If you think you are being used, then you quit!
      Rip ola

    3. That's very true. That's how most of their offices are; like warehouses. It's horrible. They literally stand to do their work. Theres no fan talkless of AC. Their working hours are horrible. Some even do night shift. In PH they were even robbed and the staff present tied up. And every day they remit nothing less than 4m into their accounts. Their MDs are shitty,useless and greedy people. We have no enforceable laws guarding employment/employees if not this won't be happening... It is well

  29. Our country is a big joke. No regulatory body that can caution or checkmate all this ill treatment. That was how I got invited for a job somewhere in Ikeja, only to get there and meet a large crowd. Then we were seated only to be ask stupid questions from incompetent f***s. Was asked to go for second stage and then the lecture began, ooo, they started marketing themselves. People can just get away with anything in this country. Made up my mind there and then to go into my own thing, no matter how small. RIP to the dead. But as it has been said now, what will anyone do about it? If they even try, won't Jumia bribe their way out? This country is messed. There is no aspect one can even say is average. Unemployment, security, food, transportation, light, good roads, health.... Nothing works. and no one should start mentioning Apc/Pdp, it didn't start today!

  43. Nigerians keep blaming the government for mishaps such as this yet, they still buy from them. Google boycott of primark and Nike when citizens found out about working conditions of the staff. Stop buying from Jumia. Begin to demand for your rights. All staff decide not to go to work one day. Have secret meetings, go and lock up the ware house. For there to be a revolution, extreme measures have to be taken. I know it sounds hard,but now that govt isn't working , begin to demand the justice yourselves. Thank you

    I am sure everyone in Jumia is sad about this development but it is very irresponsible to blame the company without even asking about Ola's health history.

    The Day Nigerians will investigate before dropping comments then we are heading forward.

    Jobs are tough but nobody in Jumia is being treated like slaves. #Fact

    If you have never been to any of the warehouses, you should not be throwing blame based on 'them say them say'.

  46. @ portable , if the working condition is bad that's when we all have to speak up as one Nigeria to fight this. This so called expatriates will not have such a warehouse with horrible conditions in their own home country. They will get fined for it. The Nigerian Government need to do something about this things. Yet they want the Nigerians abroad to come home and make the country better when they can't even defend the citizens back home. What happened to all the law makers, safety inspectors and the rest? #speakupNigeria #fightforNigerians

It's either r standing or walking from one end of d warehouse to d other for 12 hours @ a strecth. No fans, no A/Cs. We work extra time evryday but @ d end of d month dey will still short pay us claimin dt we r payin for items dt got missin. We don't get bonuses, no encouragement. They treat us like animals. Nobody is happy workin wiv dere but wen there r no jobs ouut there, wat can we do? Ola died bcos of d stress. If he had stayed @ home dt day, he wud av been dismissed.

  55. Ola suddenly grabbed his chest and slumped at work {JUMIA IKEJA} @ about 1.30pm. Everything was caught on tape so there is evidence. He was taken from Ikeja office and brought ALL THE WAY to Lagos Island General Hospital. How wicked can those INDIANS SLAVE DRIVERS AT JUMIA be. They left Ikeja General, Ilupeju, Bariga, even surulere and headed to Lagos. Ola could have still been alive today. But we thank God for his life and we cannot question God. But JUMIA must pay for this negligence. His family/next of kin not notified till 6.30pm. These indians must leave Nigeria or treat us well.People will say if you are not happy resign, well we must survive and need jobs.

  56. I was a staff at Jumia and would categorically tell you that the warehouse is hot as hell. I once asked some of the guys that were assigned to work there how they manage to cope in such a very hot environment that disallows people from sitting down even when they are tired. Apoorva the head of Jumia warehouse is so wicked that he will fire anyone that dare question his indian authority.
