“Throughout the period I worked for her, she always assaulted me verbally” – Tonto Dikeh’s ex nanny alleges
By Rita Chioma
An older woman, who is the estranged nanny of Tony Dikeh’s son, Mrs. Mgbechi Enyinnaya, has accused the Nollywood actress of subjecting her to all forms of emotional and psychological abuse while she was working for her.
The 56-year-old native of Imo State, who opened up on what really transpired between them in a chat with journalists in Lagos, after a video showing her being questioned by Dikeh in company of others went over the weekend. She said that contrary to claims by the actress of showing her love by regularly gifting her money for her children, she had never done so.
Though Enyinnaya acknowledged that Dikeh had on a number of occasions given her clothes for two of her children, she dismissed most of what Tonto said, alleging they were false..
She said, “Throughout the period I worked for Tonto, she always assaulted me verbally. At the slightest opportunity, she would rain abuses on me and tell me that she would scatter me if I wasn’t careful.
I lived in that house with her despite all the constant harassment because of her son, King. I loved the boy like my own child and it was because of him that I stayed long with her. She has never given me money to give to my children.
The only thing she did was to give me some of the clothes she wanted to distribute to motherless babies homes to give to my children. Tonto said that she had taken me to 15 countries, let her show the world my passport and the copy of the visas she claimed to have obtained for me.
The only place we went outside Nigeria together was Ghana and it was her husband, Churchill, that took us there. The video she posted online was not the complete version. All the things I said, they did not show it.
She only showed where she and others were intimidating me; they never allowed me to talk. Let her tell the world the truth because I worked for her diligently and had never conspired with anyone to tarnish her image.”
