There is currently a tussle between a former board member of the Tonto Dikeh Foundation, Bunmi Fagbuyiro , and the star actress .
During the week, Fagbuyiro cried out on social media that if anything happened to him or any member of his family , Dikeh should be held responsible .
When NEWSPAD got in touch with him , he explained that he used to work with Dikeh but had to resign when he couldn’ t tolerate her (excesses) any longer . He stated , “We used to work together but she is not exactly a good woman . I tried to tolerate her but it got to a point when I felt I deserved some respect and left the foundation . When I told her I was leaving , she became bitter towards me and called me many unprintable names . But I didn ’ t mind as long as I didn’ t steal from her. She is the type of person who doesn ’ t like to pay salaries; she doesn ’ t want to be responsible for anything. ”
According to Fagbuyiro , the actress got him arrested for no reason . He said she sent him a message that once she paid him , he should return all the company ’ s properties with him and he didn’ t object to it. He added , “ A week after she sent me the message , she came with some SARS officers to arrest me . They were supposed to beat me but they were gentle with me after I told them what transpired between us . She collected all her things from me and told the SARS officers that she would pay me the next day . Meanwhile , she didn ’ t pay until four months later .
“ I have known her for 10 years but we worked together fully for six years . It was hell working with her. Everyone who had worked with her didn’ t leave on good terms, but I thought I could coexist with her. I took my time to study her and I observed her temperament . I even tried to help her psychologically . ”
Fagbuyiro said he had asked to be removed as a signatory to the NGO ’ s bank account twice but his name was spelt wrongly and the documents were rejected by the bank . “When she called me that my money was ready but I needed to sign a document , I obliged . Unfortunately , the two times I signed , they didn ’ t spell my name correctly on the documents . This has made them unable to withdraw money from the foundation ’ s account , ” he added .
He explained that since he was arrested , he had not heard from Dikeh directly but through her management . “When her manager , Chris Odeh , called me that I needed to sign again , I was furious because I wasn’ t in town . She talks to me through her management . Odeh was also the one who showed me the threat message she sent to me . I also have a recording of how they planned to destroy me , ” he stated.
Fagbuyiro said he was ready to settle the issue amicably but the actress wasn’ t ready to take the blame. “ Yesterday (Wednesday ), I was invited by the police for a meeting and she was there too . After the policeman went through all the signed papers I presented, he asked her to apologise to me . She said she could not say sorry and walked out , ” he stated .
However , in a chat with NEWSPAD, Odeh said he was not Dikeh ’ s manager but a friend. He stated, “I really have nothing to say about this because I wasn’ t there when they registered the NGO . The only thing I know is that Tonto Dikeh raised funds for an ailing young boy on social media . The money was paid into her NGO ’s account and Mr . Bunmi Fagbuyiro is also a signatory to that account . The bank said she couldn’ t withdraw any money without Bunmi ’s signature . They advised her to tell him to sign off from the foundation so that she would be the only signatory. I knew Bunmi through Tonto Dikeh and she told me to talk to him as a friend. Bunmi told me he would not sign the document and I delivered the message to her . I am just acting as a mediator so that there wouldn’ t be trouble . ”
