Senegalese Business Tycoon Drags His Former Fiancée to Court, Demands Refund of Money and Gifts


Aisha Fatty, a prominent Gambian socialite, has been hauled to court by her former fiancé, Senegalese-Gambian business mogul Abdoulaye Thiam, to reimburse all the money and gifts he provided her during their engagement.

Aisha, a former State House protocol worker, was previously married to footballer Tijan Jaiteh, but the marriage ended in divorce.

According to a report published on Wednesday, March 22, 2023 by The Standard Daily Gambia, Aisha abruptly cancelled the engagement and disappeared after getting millions of Dalasi from the business tycoon.

According to the suit, Abdoulaye and Aisha began dating after which he proposed to her and shortly began planning their wedding.


According to the statement of claim, prior to the proposed marriage, the two travelled to Dubai together, where the plaintiff (Abdoulaye Thiam) spent US$ 100,000.00 on wedding preparations.


They also traveled to Paris, France, where Abdoulaye claimed to have spent an additional Euro100,000 on designer bags and watches. According to the statement of claim, Aisha Fatty received an additional US$50,000.00 to purchase African clothing from Nigeria.

According to the complaint, Abdoulaye has been sending Aisha D180,000.00 every month for her maintenance since their intended wedding.


Despite all of Abdoulaye’s preparations and expenses for his marriage to Aisha, she declined to go ahead with the ceremony, which was slated for December 2021.


The plaintiff, Aboulaye, also claimed in the action that Aisha Fatty received Euro150,000.00 for the construction of a three-story building complex in the Gambia, as well as D19,500,000.00 for the purchase of a property at Fajara Waterfront.

Abdoulaye is also claiming the sum of CFA 822,000,000.00 which he alleged was expended in the purchase of gold given to Aisha for business.
The plaintiff is further seeking a declaration that he is the bonafide owner of a black Mercedes Benz GLE63 Braubus with Registration Number BJL 4222W or in the alternative, the sum of Euro 200.000.00, being the value of the car.
He is also seeking a court declaration that he is the bonafide owner of a white Mercedes Benz GLE 53 car with registration Number BJL 0999W or in the alternative the sum of US$102,000.00, being value of the car.
The statement of claim disclosed further that Aisha’s refusal to go ahead with the proposed marriage has caused the plaintiff great financial losses, and embarrassment within the family, colleagues and friends who were duly invited to their marriage.
It said Abdoulaye is psychologically troubled by Aisha’s alleged disappointment and will continue to suffer financial and reputation damages if the issues are not resolved in his favour.
The Inspector General of Police is also included in the suit because the cars are currently under the custody of the police.
The court has reliably confirmed that the IGP has been served with the hearing notice whilst Aisha Fatty, has still not received the hearing notice.
