“I am surprised as a woman that the Bar Association of which she is a member has not commented or taken a lead in making a statement in support of their colleague,” she a former senior official at the Bank who said she went through the same harassment a few years ago but left because it was too much for her. “Why do you think as a boss you should sleep with all the women you employ regardless of their marital status,” she fumed.

The said victim has produced substantial and shocking evidence to back up her claim which includes inappropriate ‘one way’ text messages sent to her from a foreign WhatsApp number used by her boss.

Rokel Bank, she alleges vehemently, is overcrowded with concubines or families of concubines and most of them are inexperienced and unqualified.
