An Accra High court has removed First Atlantic Bank from the lawsuit concerning a mistress who was involved in a relationship with a top official of the bank. The decision followed a motion filed by the bank's lawyers.
The High Court has also awarded a cost of GH¢6,000 against Deborah Seyram Adablah, the woman who sued the former Chief Finance officer of the bank, Ernest Nimako.
The bank's lawyers had wanted the court to get Adablah to pay GH¢ 50,000 to the bank, but Adablah’s lawyer pleaded for a reduction of the charge.
The original lawsuit initiated is still pending at the court and has been saddled with a number of interim applications.

The main case
YEN.com.gh reported that Adablah sued First Atlantic Bank and her former boss at the bank at the Accra High Court for compelling her to enter into a sexual relationship that spanned many months.
In the lawsuit, she claimed Nimako failed to honour the terms of their relationship. She stated further that she subsequently entered into a parlour relationship with Nimako against her will.
She recounted that by July 2022, she and Nimako had agreed that their relationship had become too strained.

According to Adablah, they reached an agreement for compensation but Nimako tried to forcefully retrieve a car he had bought for her.
Why Adablah sued the bank
Adablah added the bank to the suit because she blamed it for looking on while the alleged harassment occurred. She felt First Atlantic Bank should have done more to protect her.
According to Adablah, when she started working with First Atlantic Bank, there was persistent sexual harassment by senior male officers against female workers.
Adablah went further to claim that the bank urged her to win over male customers with sex.
