Ernest Kwasi Nimako, the First Atlantic Bank’s Director of Finance, is scheduled to appear in court before Friday, January 27, 2023, thanks to Deborah Seyram Adablah’s legal action.
In a lawsuit that Deborah filed on January 23, 2023, she claims that her boss who became her “sugar daddy” promised to purchase her a car, pay for her housing for three years, give her a GH3,000 monthly stipend, marry her after divorcing his wife, in addition to giving her a lump sum to establish a business.
Deborah claims in a writ of summons and statement of claims that the “sugar daddy” not only purchased the car but also registered it in his name. The document has since gone viral on social media.
It is her case that the “sugar daddy” although bought the car and registered it in his (sugar daddy’s name), he has taken the car back, denying her access to use it after about a year of enjoying the Honda Civic worth GH¢120,000, while he also paid for only one year accommodation.
Adablah who claims that she was forced into the relationship during the period she did her national service has also accused the “sugar daddy” of abuse, sexual harassment, maltreatment, exploitation and also lowering her reputation.
The plaintiff is seeking an order from the court directed at the “sugar daddy” to transfer the title of the car into her name, and also give her back the car.
She is also asking the court to order the defendant to pay her the lump sum to enable “her start a business to take care of her self as agreed by the plaintiff and the defendant.”
Another relief is for the court to order the “sugar daddy” to pay the outstanding two years accommodation as agreed between her and the defendant.
Deborah revealed that her boss further promised to divorce his wife and marry her because his marriage had broken down beyond repairs.
But in July 2022, their relationship suffered a blow when the first defendant decided to stop paying her rent and also providing other benefits he promised her.
On this basis, the plaintiff is seeking an order from the court directed at the defendant to fulfil all promises, including payment of lump sum to help her start a business to take care of herself. Below is a list of her demands:
Transfer the title of the car into her name.
Cost of repairs of 10,000gh.
Pays lump sum money to enable her to start a business.
Pays remaining 2 years’ rent.
Pays the outstanding arrears of her monthly allowance from July 2022 to the date of judgment and pays all medical expenses as a result of side effects.
General damages against her.
Any other relief(s) the court deems necessary including legal costs.
The First Atlantic Bank, which was joined in the suit, has been accused of allowing senior officers to enter into relationships with unwilling subordinates while using the females as baits to win customers for the company.
