Rocks Quest FM/TV Presenters Sacked Over Sexual Harassment by inpeace: 2:08pm On Sep 26, 2017
The crisis rocking the 10-month-old Quest FM/TV in Ogor near Ughelli, Delta State, on Monday deepened with mass sacking of staff of the station particularly On Air Personalities (OAPs) amid speculation of sexual harassment by the station’s media consultant, Sammy Odins Odinhiri, against female staff of the media outfit.

This is coming barely nine months after an alleged office romance between randy consultant and an OAP, Divine Ighovie, almost tore the station apart after it was made known by the sammie's girlfriend Jessica Talora Omamulli who is based in Lagos went viral and the said OAP was sacked as a result.

The NEWSSTAND can authoritatively reports that the station is also facing financial troubles as the station can barely pay workers salaries and maintain its daily operation since the owner vowed not to continue to doll out money for its running.

Investigation by The NEWSSTAND revealed that Mr. Odinhiri, popularly called Sammie, is a married man with family based in Benin city, Edo State.

Despite his marital commitment, with chains of girlfriend in Lagos and Warri, Sammie has a penchant for office romance hence his sexual exploit of female staff of Quest FM who are single, failure of which he wields the big stick on them for a sack.

Claiming to be a computer science graduate from the University of Benin, Sam is the “consultant” to the media outfit and the defector owner of the station as his word is bond in the station despite the fact that he lacks the managerial skill to man the establishment, according to staff of the media house.

After his sexual exploit with a female staff of the station who was sacked in December following a clash with the said staff and another of his girlfriend who he claimed to be his wife, a source at the station disclosed that he pitched his love advances to a new female staff of the establishment whom he had since promoted to a top editorial staff of the station.

However, the controversy rocking the station climaxed yesterday with the sack of all the OAPs and Disk Jockeys (DJ) in the station.

According to the letter of termination signed by Mr. Greg Edor on behalf of Honey Waves Communication Investment Ltd, owners of Quest FM/TV, the company accused the staff of sabotage and removing a dongle from the live studio system, an allegation the sacked staff referred to as “giving a dog a bad name just to hang it.”

The letter read, “In view of the unsatisfactory outcome of several interrogative chat sessions management held with you, bothering on the removal of the dongle from the live studio system, which is an established case of sabotage in your unit, we regret to inform you that your appointment is hereby terminated with immediate effect.”

Top presenters including Goodlife, Itohan Ekpemiata sacked

Those fired include; Itohan Ekpemiata aka Baroness, Goodlife Atevure aka Goodlife the Spectacular, Stephen Umiaphia aka King Steve and Ifeoluwa Robert aka Ife on the M.I.C.

The station also wielded the big stick on both DJ’s in the station, DJ Pato E. and DJ Barrock.

Why Mudiaga Asagba, others left

Meanwhile, other OAPs like Omatesye Atsenuwa, Ben Lawson, Mudiaga Asagba and a host of others, had since resigned their appointment with the company over what they regarded as the unprofessional conduct being orchestrated by the management of the company.

Itohan Ekpemiata aka Baroness speaks

However, accusing Sammie as being the brain being her unceremoniously sack, Baroness said, “Sammie has always been harassing me sexually and my problem in the station started when I turned him down despite the fact that I reported him to the CEO of the company.

“This is pure injustice as he had tried to have his way with me severally and threatened that if he doesn’t have me, it’s either he leaves the company or I leave and he has successfully done that.”

With the wave of sack amidst sexual harassment of female staff of the company, the company which is devoid of programmes anchored by the sacked OAPs has been streaming just musicals to fill the void while the news editor, Ruth Alabor who has also being in the center of the storm, is now the voice behind the news both on radio and television and the new girlfriend of the said sammie.

Efforts to speak with Mr. Sammie on the allegation proved abortive. A text message later sent to this medium indicates that he was in a meeting and can’t talk at the moment.

Several hours later, he had not call back nor responded to a text message sent to him on the happenings at the station.

The above is supposed to pass a message, abi?

Pathetic

Incoherent write up

Do we still have editors in Nigeria?

This is how it should have been written

'Despite his marital commitment, as well as chains of girlfriends in Lagos and Warri, Sammie has a penchant for office romance. Hence, his sexual exploit of female staff of Quest FM who are single, and failure to reciprocate his overtures, leads him to wield the big stick on them for a sack'

May God help us

The writer couldn't differentiate between doll and dole neither could he tell the difference between defector and de-facto.

It's unfortunate that illiterates like this are the ones in the media these days. That's why having read a brain-numbing report by clowns like this, they end up saying Ayiri is richer than Dangote.
