DAVID ADELEKE sent messages to my manager who’s also part of his management team that I shouldn’t worry and should never say a word to him and that I was taunting him, uttering very disrespectful, malicious and derogatory words to my person.
“I responded to MR. DAVID ADELEKE’s message and told him not to reach out to me especially as I feel like I have been there for him and his daughter, Imade and more importantly when he lost his son.
“The events of that day have also led to a barrage of calls and messages from our mutual connections, asking me what I did to MR. DAVID ADELEKE that he’s upset that I choose to maintain a relationship with Imade’s mother, Sophia Momodu who he’s having issues with and also painting the exchange to look like I was the aggressor.
“He has also told our mutual connections to warn me to “becareful in Lagos because he was going to f**k me up.
“This is beginning to feel like some form of online and offline harassment not just to me but also members of my team.
“The actions of MR. DAVID ADELEKE are unethical and can be viewed as a direct threat to my right.”
