A former associate of actress Tonto Dikeh, Bunmi Fagbuyiro has revealed that his time with her could be likened to a journey to the Hades.
Earlier this week, Fagbuyiro had made an allegation against the actress over threats to his life and that of his family and cried out on social media, saying if anything happens to them, Tonto Dikeh should be held responsible.
When The Punch 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.
“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.”
Fagbuyiro also revealed that the actress got him arrested for no reason:
“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.”
