Brenda Unachukwu, former Acting General Manager of Fulham Properties, owned by entrepreneur Chidi Anyaegbu, who also owns Chisco Transport, vehemently denied accusations of embezzling N143 million during her tenure as AGM at the company in a recent interview with watchers.ng.
Brenda shared her side of the story, asserting that she possesses compelling evidence supporting her innocence and dispelling the allegations. She contended that the allegations were an attempt by Anyaegbu to divert attention from a slew of outstanding salary payments, commissions, and other dues owed to employees.
Contrary to reports in some media outlets, Brenda clarified, “The case in court is N26,100,000, not N143,000,000 as alleged. I am not indebted to Chisco for N143 million.”
The former head of Fulham Properties, committed to transparency, also claimed that Anyaegbu had failed to settle her rightful entitlements even after she had left her position.
Brenda explained, “From May to December, I received no payment for my role as AGM, which included a 1% commission. Instead, I was only given 500,000 Naira, which was supposed to be my allowance.”
“We had agreed on the 1% commission, and if I met the target of 60 or more, I was entitled to a percentage of the total income for that month. The amount varied, sometimes 500, sometimes 700, depending on performance. This arrangement was because of my expertise in the role.”
“However, in May, he abruptly stopped these payments. In December, I formally resigned following the appropriate procedures. I even followed the rule that required me to provide two months’ notice. I submitted my resignation letter on the 16th of December,” Brenda recounted.
She went on to allege that “the 1% commission, which was part of my agreement when I became AGM, ceased to be paid in May. Anyaegbu claimed that my resignation letter was improperly written and that it had errors in the English language.”
