Lord Ibrahim Sani, a Ghanaian-born UK-based entrepreneur, has denied allegations of sexual molestation levelled against him.
A former personal assistant of the real estate tycoon who made the allegation claimed that he sexually harassed her. The incident happened during their trip to Greece.
The victim whose name is being kept under anonymity disclosed that they both flew in a business class where Sani started getting too close.
“He touched and told me how beautiful I am but I ignored him because I don’t think that way about him. I was all about my work because we were supposed to have a professional work relationship,” she revealed.
But Lord Sani dismissed the allegation, saying he has always had a professional work relationship with his PAs.
Whoever is making those claims, he indicated, has only mischaracterised their work relationship.
“My relationship with my personal assistants has always been professional. I am surprised this is coming up,” he said.
Lord Sani also denied claims that he has tried to bribe the victim with £130,000 and a three-bedroom house in Lincolnshire in UK to keep the victim from reporting the incident to the police.
Lord Sani is the CEO for Sani Group and Sani Holdings, with numerous diversifications ranging from real estate to oil and farming.
This is, however, the first time he is in the news over his action towards a woman.
