A 60-year-old married man, Salisu Nuhu on Tuesday dragged his girlfriend to court over her refusal to marry him.

The complainant told the Magajin Gari Sharia Court II in Kaduna that the girl, Janet Baru had professed love to him and promised to convert to Islam so that they could get married, but later denied him after collecting a huge amount of money from him.

He added that the defendant connived with her friend, Juliet to dupe him of N30, 000 after making him believe that she would marry him.

“I have been dating Janet for four years now and each time I visit her, I normally give her N1,000 or N2,000, and I have never touched her.

“Her friend, Juliet, asked me to give her N40,000 to show my seriousness about marriage, but I was able to give her N30,000”, he said.

He added that she requested him to meet her people in Benue which he declined but instead paid N5,000 transport fare for her brother to come to Kaduna.

Nuhu explained that he had given Janet N45,000 during Christmas with a clothing material worth N8,000 and N2,000 for sewing.

He, therefore, prayed to the court to assist him in retrieving all the monies he spent on her.

The defendant on her part, said they had only dated for a year and was only aware of receiving N75,000 from him out of the monies he mentioned.

Janet told the court that she did not refund the money because he gave it to her as a gift, not dowry.

The Judge, Musa Sa’ad after listening to both parties adjourned the case to July 17, for a ruling.

Osun Guber: Don’t Kill Yourselves Over Who Becomes Governor, Only God Gives Power — Ooni Of Ife

Published

on

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, has warned youths against political violence before, during and after the Osun gubernatorial election coming up on Saturday.

Oba Ogunwusi gave the warning during the courtesy visit of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) gubernatorial candidate, Sen. Iyiola Omisore to his Palace, on Thursday, in Ile-Ife.

He said: “It is only Almighty Allah that has the power to elevate whoever He wants to the post. For He is in Heaven doing what pleases Him”.

According to him, people don’t need to fight each other over getting to a post, but should rather allow God’s will to come into perfection.

The royal father, therefore, appealed to all and sundry to maintain peaceful coexistence in the forthcoming election, saying there is no gain in blood shedding.

Earlier, Omisore lauded the Ooni for his fatherly role and for supporting his aspirations to rule the state.

Omisore also thanked Ife and Osun indigenes, for rallying around him in his campaign and appealed to all and sundry to support him by casting their votes for him during the election.
