In the early hours of Monday, April 4, Clara Wanjiku, an ex-employee of Nigerian payment company Flutterwave, published a Medium post calling out the company’s CEO, Olugbenga Agboola, for “5 years of constant harassment”.
In the post, Wanjiku claims that after quitting her job as Head of Implementation at Flutterwave (Rest of Africa) in 2018, she wasn’t paid her “dues”, and sued Flutterwave over this allegation.

The Flutterwave CEO is bullying me and it ends today.
The Oxford dictionary defines bullying as ‘Seeking to harm, intimidate, or coerce (someone perceived as vulnerable).’
I have been constantly belittled,lied about,harassed,had my name tarnished and almost arrested because of Olugbenga Agboola the CEO of Flutterwave and I am calling time. It has been almost 5 years of constant harassment and I am over it all.
I decided to quit my job at Flutterwave late 2018. A lot of things happened and in the end I felt like I was not being treated well and rendered my resignation. Before the attempt to paint me as anything but a stellar employee is made,this,from the company Slack channel says otherwise
I asked GB repeatedly to have my dues settled and he ignored me. I informed him I was going to get a lawyer,which he saw as a threat.
So I asked a lawyer to serve them with a letter,which happened.
I immediately began to receive calls from various Flutterwave staff asking to talk and resolve this amicably. I got the following message from the head of HR as well as a call from the COO Bode Abifarin,which I will come to shortly.
