Last September, the name Adewunmi Oyekanmi became quite popular in the news after the infamous assault incident with BEAT FM exec Olisa Adibua. If you missed it or cant remember the incident, read it HERE. Eight months later, Adewumni has been fired from the company.
Sources say the management was prompted to sack Adewunmi after he had another misunderstanding with a Naija FM staff – this time over an item which was missing in the office. Adewunmi was accused of stealing another staff’s meal – a pack of Jollof rice.
Sources say, Adewunmi denied the accusation but a CCTV camera which recorded the whole incident proved him wrong.
Insiders at the Beat insist Oyekanmi was not victimised, but only unfortunate to have been the one caught. ‘Management had been trying to stop the issue of stealing. That’s part of the reason they installed CCTV everywhere, and encouraged all staff to report cases of missing items, so these can be tracked using the CCTV recordings. It’s just unfortunate that he’s the one that was caught. If it had been anyone else, the same fate would have befallen that person’.
