Barclays worker Ms Adedji, who lives with her mother, father and two brothers, believed the ‘stolen’ package was a £60 wallet which her brother had ordered.
She told the Sun Online that the alleged theft was ‘very annoying’ and although the parcel did not contain anything expensive, ‘it’s just the principle’.
Ms Adedji went on to claim that Asda had initially promised someone would respond to her report of the theft within 24 hours but that no one had.
She added that she was unhappy with the response when it did come.
‘The thing that annoyed me most is the fact that when we emailed Asda, they came back to me and said ‘we’re sorry to hear that you had advised that the driver allegedly stole your parcel,’ and then asked me what was in the parcel and whether it was big or small.
Ms Adedji posted the video on Instagram. She wrote above one still from the video, ‘I feel like crimewatch’. She later added: ‘you will now see your delivery guy STEAl my parcel and put it in his van’
‘So at this point my mum – who ordered the Asda delivery in the first place – was fuming because number one, you’re now saying that I’m lying essentially because of the use of ‘allegedly.’
‘And then secondly you’re asking about the package – because it doesn’t matter if it was £2 eyelashes, you should not come in and steal someone’s package.’
The Metropolitan Police confirmed they were investigating an allegation of theft at the property on Thursday, September 26.
No arrests have been made and enquiries continue.
An Asda spokesperson said: ‘We have been made aware of an incident involving one of our grocery home shopping delivery drivers.
‘We do not tolerate theft of any kind and whilst we would not comment on individual colleagues, we take this incredibly seriously and will fully support the police with their investigations.
‘We are in contact with Ms Adedeji so that we can discuss this with her directly in order to apologise and help our investigations.’
