According to reports that went viral in the year 2017, she was arrested in the US after her bank account was allegedly used for fraudulent bank transfer.

Yewande Adekoya in a recent interview with, said she is an upright citizen who would never engage in fraudulent activities. See what she said below;

The rumour that I was arrested for fraud in America in 2017 was false. I woke up that day and saw the news everywhere.

I felt the journalist was paid to write such defamatory news about me by someone who was threatened by my brand. But she made a huge mistake because she attacked the wrong person. I didn’t travel to the US in 2017 as she claimed; I was in Nigeria working.

I am an upright citizen and I have never been associated with anything illegal. All claims of this sort should be disregarded. The American government is not silly; I have even travelled to the US and Canada after the fraud news.

The journalist didn’t apologise or retract the story; so, my lawyers were left with no option but to sue her. As we speak, the case is in court. The said journalist has refused to turn up in court since the case started.
