AdamStart founder disassociates self from attempts to collect funds on his behalf in Nigeria


Founder of international non-profit organisation, AdamStart, Adam Bradford has disassociated himself from attempts at using his name to collect funds in Nigeria.

Adam Bradford, 28, one of the Queen’s Young Leaders, and founder of AdamStart that supports young entrepreneurs, has hit out at fraudulent attempts to damage the company’s work.

According to lawyers representing the high profile entrepreneur, his name has been used to collect money across the country in fraudulent attempts to deceive unwitting young people in the man’s name.

Adam rose to prominence in Nigeria after his support of #EndSARS protests where his foundation supported young people on their advocacy efforts.

Lawyers from HBD representing Adam commented: “We are aware of individuals using our client’s name to extort money from the public. Our client does not collect money for the participation in their charitable or personal programmes. We will expend the full extent of the law to stop these criminals from profiting from our client’s good name and reputation without any hesitation and will apply full legal action immediately against the perpetrators bringing to disrepute our client’s good name.”

Bradford however was not immediately available for comment.
