Adedoyin Sulaiman, former manager of Nigerian actress turned businesswoman, Lilian Bach, is currently in detention for allegedly stealing over N7million from the actress’ account.
However, when arraigned in court, Adedoyin pleaded not guilty, saying she only borrowed a total sum of N120,000 to pay her child’s school fee.
Also, Adedoyin’s sister was quoted as saying that Lillian Bach was away for some time when Adedoyin was seriously in need of some money to pay her child’s school fee.
She asked for a loan which was approved by Assistant Manager and Lillian Bach from the company’s accounts to take care of her pressing need.
“Adedoyin later paid N60,000 out of the money she borrowed from the company’s accounts and the balance was N60,000. I was later shocked to receive a call that the Police officers have arrested our daughter.
She actually notified the company’s management that she will be resigning right after paying off her debt. Bach arrested her and not only Adedoyin, but with her visitor who was with her as at that time, who happened to be her brother,” she said.
But in a conversation with New Telegraph, Lilian Bach said;
“The lady took advantage of the fact that I travel a lot to steal and loot so much from my shop.
After the auditing I did with a reputable auditing firm, I realised she’d stolen more than N7million. She got herself an American visa and was going to flee the country.
It was sometime in October last year that she gave me a call that she wanted to see me. I asked her to talk to me over the phone and she then sent me a copy of her visa. I was happy for her and because I trusted her so much, she got into me posing as a true Christian.
It was a salesgirl that told me of how badly she and some of her family member had been stealing from my shop. It was the police that charged her to court and when she was unable to meet the bail conditions, she was detained at Kirikiri prisons.”
