Glory Osei and Muyiwa Folorunsho, Nigerian entrepreneurs, have taken centre stage on Twitter after their alleged former employees accused them of fraud and maltreatment.

The Lagos-based entrepreneurs are said to be the CEOs of Divergent Enterprise, which operates a number of businesses including Landlagos, PorkMoney, Hyberfactory and Porkoyum, among other companies.

Trouble started on Monday morning after a lady (Ada) shared her experience with the employers, who she said, hire staff, maltreat them and fire them without pay.

In a series of tweets, Ada explained how the duo defrauded some of their clients and how they have kept the knowledge of their marriage away from the public.

However, in a swift rebuttal, Osei claimed that she has “never mistreated any staff”.

She added that her “social media personality” was deliberate because “I do like to keep certain aspects of my life very private”.

“For those who are unhappy with my perceived treatment of them while working for me, I sincerely apologize, and I do hope that over time, as you venture into creating businesses of yours that you get to understand why some things however unpalatable are totally necessary if one is to survive as a business owner in Nigeria,” she wrote.

Her statement did not help matters as some Nigerians have taken to the microblogging platform to register their different opinions on the scandal.

“Many of your parents, uncles, friends, and religious leaders are like Gloria Osei and Muyiwa Folorunso. Many of you are towing that path too. Just know that the sweat of the people you cheat to shine either as an employer or an online vendor will not let you rest,” a user wrote.

Here’s what some Nigerians had to say:
