A lady who was allegedly abused and maltreated by her husband has been begging him to come and take back his bride price for the past two years now but he refused.
According to reports, he mocked and taunted her with his current girlfriend whom he allegedly said is prettier than his wife.
The lady is seeking for help to return the bride price and obtain a receipt from the man. Human rights lawyer, Emeka Ugwuonye shared her story online. Read below;
“He abused his wife. He maltreated her. He starved her. He told her that his current girlfriend is prettier. He even denied the vow he made at the altar. He said to her: “I never told you I loved you or that you would be my only wife”. He neglected and abandoned her. He threatened her with divorce. He even made a “mock demand” for the refund of the bride price.
After enduring and praying for him to change, she found the courage and left the marriage. Now, for two years, she has been begging him and his people to come and take the bride price and the man has been posting her. He believes that if he does not take the bride price, he would continue to hold the lady hostage and prevent her from remarrying.”
