Sex Scandal Rocks MTN Nigeria

MTN, Africa’s largest telecommunications company, is having a bad week after one of its female employees accused the company’s Chief Sales & Distribution Officer, Adekunle Adebiyi, of sexual harassment.

 

MTN Nigeria female employees claim that Adekunle Adebiyi, Chief Sales & Distribution Officer, is a sexual predator under the aegis of ‘The Anonymous Whistleblowers.’

 

Beckons on the support of MTN Nigeria CEO Karl Toriola and Cyril Ilok, head of forensics, who shield his excesses, to engage in a number of fraudulent activities without question.

 

MTN Nigeria’s Chief Sales and Distribution Officer, Adekunle Adebiyi, has been accused by female employees of repeated sexual harassment and other wrongdoing.

 

According to widespread reports, in a series of emails and documents sent to MTN Group’s headquarters in South Africa between April 2021 and February 2022, female employees who hid their identities and only identified themselves as ‘The Anonymous Whistleblowers,’ accused Adebiyi of being a sexual predator who used his position in the company to sleep with young female employees.

 

They also accused him of threatening to fire such women if they did not comply with his demands.

The disgruntled employees also claimed that Adekunle Adebiyi was using his position to place relatives and friends in critical positions at the telecommunications company, despite their lack of the necessary educational qualifications and expertise.

 

The whistleblowers also accused the Chief Sales and Marketing Officer.

 

According to the employees, despite his serious misconducts and acts of corruption and sabotage against MTN Group, Adekunle Adebiyi had the full support of MTN Nigeria Chief Executive Officer Karl Toriola and other key executives.

 

‘The Anonymous Whistleblowers’ wrote to Nerisha Singh, General Manager, Forensic Services, of MTN Group, saying, “We are writing because the man, Adekunle Adebiyi, who heads sales, is a dangerous threat to your company.” We hope that men like Adekunle Adebiyi do not ruin MTN Nigeria.

 

 

You allowed a monster and sexual predator to remain in office, but after a year, we can no longer be intimidated by his continued threats.

The whistleblowers also accused the Chief Sales and Distribution Officer of inflating contracts, accepting payments, and fabricating phony sales figures to deceive management and keep his desired position.

“Many of us became victims of his arrogant abuses and harsh punishments.” Through his threats and intimidation, three people in S&D resigned. Kumar Abubakar, a resourceful Senior Manager, was fired on trumped-up charges by him and Amina, his GM in the North, because Kumar is aware of all their phony and forged gross connections, numbers, and sales figures. They are aware that he would subject them to forensics.

“Sales conferences are always his setting for his sexual exploits, in which he uses his front and power to entice young innocent MTNNers levels 1, 2, 3, and vulnerable girls into sex.”

“Your sexual harassment policy does not protect levels one, two, or three, or young girls.” They have been sexually harassed by Adekunle Adebiyi. They are unable to speak to him or report him for fear of losing their jobs. Because they don’t trust HR, many cases have been reported to close friends rather than HR.

“His bribery and corruption with NIMC Nigeria, collecting money from vendors through his fronts, and flooding MTN Nigeria with his family and friends as SIM registration agents continue.”

“Adekunle is a rotten egg. His depravity is beyond comprehension. One of our anonymous members shared a message he sent to a finance staff member, pleading with them to pre-pay a vendor for a large contract so he could collect his bribes in advance.

“He gives contracts to foreign vendors at higher prices because of the money they want to collect as bribes.” Procurement and Finance staff are aware of this, but were unable to report it until some of them joined this “whistleblower” group. They are still afraid because these men who work for Adekunle pose a threat to our jobs.

“Look into the jobs of his many relatives, particularly Ekundayo Fatoki, Customer Acquisition Manager.” He failed interviews, but Adekunle and his colleagues brought him in to re-conduct them two or more times.

The two women he sexually harassed are now afraid to come forward with evidence because our jobs are in jeopardy. We are terrified, and our lives are in danger. Adekunle and his associates are extremely powerful and have the ability to exterminate.

“He has two men on his board of directors.” Cyril Ilok, the head of forensics, is his womanizing and drinking partner, and he will never allow all of the staff petitions to go through investigations.

“He accepts bribes from vendors and settles his “boys and girls” in all of the units where he engages in fraudulent activities, including procurement.” He fired Daniel and Bukola four years ago because they knew his secrets about fraudulent activities in all MTN procurement deals.

 

“The people had videos of when his fronts took money as bribes, but they were threatened and fired.” If you want to look into it, the two former staff members are still alive.

“From the time he was acting as sales and distribution executive until now, he virtually uses his fronts and his friends to pitch all the works for customer acquisitions, supplies of MTN airtime, and merchandising, with money running into billions of naira.”

“He can continue to tell lies to Enzo Scarcella, the Group Chief Consumer Officer, his team, Jens in South Africa, or even the COO in Nigeria; we know he is a deceptive man with numbers.”

 

“He has boasted to vendors and business partners that as long as Cyril Ilok and Karl Toriola are employed by MTN Nigeria, nothing will happen to him.”

 

“As of today, MTN Nigeria has over eight court cases in which former trade partners Adebiyi removed or terminated their appointments in ways that violated the law.”

“Fire or remove Adekunle Adebiyi before you pay another fine or enter the murky waters of Nigeria.”
According to the whistleblowers, Adebiyi allegedly used proceeds from his corrupt transactions with MTN Nigeria to buy a mansion in Manchester, United Kingdom, and to build a multi-million naira state-of-the-art school for his wife in Lagos.

“How much does he earn as an MTN executive that he bought a house in Manchester, UK, including the large school he built for his wife in Lagos?” the disgruntled employees asked.

 

Responding to the employees’ allegations against Adebiyi, Singh said in an email, “We assure you of our prompt attention to all the concerns raised and that the matters raised will be thoroughly investigated.”

“With regard to the sexual harassment complaints, MTN is committed to providing a safe environment for all of its employees free of discrimination on any basis and workplace harassment, including sexual harassment.” MTN has a zero-tolerance policy for sexual harassment in the workplace. All sexual harassment complaints will be taken seriously and treated with dignity, sensitivity, and confidentiality.”

When contacted by SaharaReporters on Tuesday, Funsho Aina, a spokesperson for MTN Nigeria, declined to comment despite acknowledging a text message seeking clarification from one of their correspondents.
