Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh has denied reports which claim she abandoned her son’s Nanny at an Abuja hospital after she developed excruciating pains on her legs from the actress’s home.
The elderly woman identified as Mgbechi Enyinnaya was reportedly living with Tonto Dikeh after she left her matrimonial home with their son, King Andrea, around January when she had marital issues with her estranged husband Mr.Olakunle Churchill.
The nanny who is a mother of 4, claimed she was abandoned at the Maitama General hospital by her madam for two days with no assistance from anyone to pay hospital bills to commence treatment after she developed excruciating pains on her legs from Tonto Dikeh’s home.
The nanny was discovered at the emergency ward when a charity organisation – Queen Ashley Foundation was on a tour to hospitals donating to patients in preparation for its Children’s Day Party.

Lamenting bitterly of her madam (Tonto Dikeh’s) nonchalant attitude, the woman revealed that she borrowed N10,000 from the house-help to come to the hospital, after several efforts to make her Madam assist her with money to take care of her deteriorating health. Consequently, she was supported with N100,000 by Queen Ashley Foundation for the hospital to start up treatment.
But Tonto Dikeh has now denied the allegations, insisting she never abandoned her son’s nanny. The actress also revealed that she discharged the lady from her duties two months ago after she realized she was no more fit for the job.

Tonto Dikeh shared a video on her Instagram page showing where she was questioning the nanny. She also shared a write-up with the video which reads:
“DISCLAIMER! DISCLAIMER!! DISCLAIMER!!! This is to inform the general public about the recently uploaded video about the nanny of my beloved dear son who in a video said I abandoned her at the hospital leaving her to fend for herself. It was so far-off from the truth.
“She was sadly discharged from her duties 2months ago, after the realization that she wasn’t fit enough for the job as she was always suffering from one illness or another which I have spent Thousands treating.
“So I paid her off and she went back to her base, I suddenly saw her about a week ago believing she came to say hello and leave, but begged to be taken back instead. It was obvious that my son missed her, which led me to permit her to stay for a few days.
“To my suprise, she took ill again and I asked that she should be taken to the hospital, which I normally do whenever she fall sick and her on-Call Personal doctor provided By Me Isnt around.
“She was rushed to the hospital on Thursday 11th may 2017, and discharged on Friday 12th may 2017, telling me that she is better now. To my greatest surprise, I got a call from one of my domestic staff that she has gone to the hospital again.
“Waking up today Saturday 13th may 2017, to see a video posted without due consultations by ‘some’ foundation
“I wondered why people love cheap publicity. How can someone who left the hospital on Friday and return to the hospital be abandoned as she FALSELY claimed.
“Nevertheless, I have consulted and instructed my lawyer to serve them with immediate effect for defamation of character and other of charges associated to this act(etc. Using the name of a child for soliciting for money illegally)
“I am appealiing to the public and especially my fans to disregard the request of paying into the account published on the blog. It’s a scam and a malicious act that should never be allowed or encouraged.
“The nanny is an ingrate for allowing her self to be used against me and my son.This is a woman who has visas to 15 different countries courtesy of me, flies first class, eats 6times a day, has call card allowance, hair allowance, has her nails taken care of by me, gets freebies for her family and friends…”
