Court Strikes Out First Atlantic Bank from ‘Side Chick’ Case; Seyram Adablah Slapped With GH¢6,000 Cost

The Accra High Court has dismissed the case against First Atlantic Bank by former National Service person Deborah Seyram Adablah, who has alleged sexual harassment against the bank and its former Chief Finance Officer, Ernest Kwasi Nimako.

The High Court in Accra has awarded GH6,000 as compensation to the bank against Deborah Seyram Adablah, the young woman who has sued a former Chief Finance Officer of the First Atlantic Bank, Ernest Kwasi Nimako.

That was after the court, presided over by Justice Olivia Obeng Owusu, struck out First Atlantic Bank’s name from the case today, Friday, July 21, following a motion filed by the lawyers of First Atlantic Bank.

Lawyers for the bank had asked the court to award a cost of GH50,000, but Adablah’s lawyer pleaded with the court, and the Plaintiff offered to pay GH5,000.

Meanwhile, the lawyers of the Plaintiff, Deborah Seyram Adablah, had on June 15, 2023, filed a motion to set aside the ruling of the Court for execution and an order for preservation of the vehicle, which is one of the subject matters in dispute.

However, the substantive case is still hanging as numerous interim applications have stood in the way of the case.

Ernest Kwasi Nimako, on the other hand, has filed an interim application to commit Adablah to prison for contempt.

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 to start a business to take care of herself 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.

Again, she wants the court to order the defendant to pay her medical expenses as a result of a “side effect of a family planning treatment” the defendant told her to do in order not to get pregnant.
