A Nigerian man has narrated how his friend cancelled his upcoming wedding because of the outrageous bride price list he was given.
According to the young man, his friend was first given a list totalling ₦850,000 which he gave a deposit of ₦799,000.
However, they gave him another list that amounted to ₦1.2 million which he refused to pay that led to the cancellation of the wedding.
Read the story he shared with SDZ below.
"Yo! this case might hit the net soon. I just said i should share this, as i am driving to work under this rain at the moment. Permit my typos o! Na one hand i dey use dey type. I'm just leaving the family house of my friend's firl's father, but they said he wasn't around. The cheque should be a 700k refund of the items my guy was meant to pay for the bride price of the girl.
They gave him a first list totalling more 850k or thereabout, he dropped 799k to them, after a week or two, they sent second list to him, which was about 1.2 million, inside this list bro, there was a part payment of car and some unnecessary things which i can' even remember right now, my guy rejected it and said the should delete some of those stuff that he can't afford the amount, theu took it back and readjusted to 1 million, my guy said No! Still..
The old man vex and said he cant go lesser than that and its not by force to marry his daughter. This issue have been going on for the past 6 months. i tell you. All ways to resolve it have been null and void. The old man and his brothers that is the girls uncles insisted that the list must stand. While my friend and his people refused.
Wedding was cancelled, now my guy asked for refund of the 700k he sent to them, since june, thet man has been playing him like a toy. I believe he has squandered the money and cant raise it back, the girl is the one stopping my guy from getting police. I was there today to pick up the cheque as promised by them, because my guy no dey around. They shifted it to weekend again. sigh.. i wonder why parents do this. did i mention that umunna list was like 500k untouched? lol."
