Couple Sends Best-man To Prison Over Wedding Suit by omoilewa(m): 6:14pm On Aug 28, 2012
A newly married woman, Mrs. Ify Anyanwu has arrested and charged to a Lagos court her husband’s bestman, Chris Abasuonu for assaulting her when she demanded the suit he wore as her husband’s bestman during their wedding.

The 31- year old Chris was charged before Apapa Magistrate’s court where he was remanded in prison custody.

Trouble started between the couple and Chris on their wedding day.

P.M.NEWS learnt that Chris started demanding N11,000 from Ify’s husband, saying that was the amount he spent on sewing his suit for the wedding.

When the woman heard it, she felt embarrassed and shocked over Chris’ attitude just as the couple was settling down after the wedding.

She reportedly gave him the money and asked him to return the suit since he had collected the money.

Though Chris said he collected the money, he did not return the suit.

According to Ify, after the wedding, Chris started telling neighbours that her husband borrowed money for their wedding.

She said Chris later started demanding from them the money he used to sew the suit on their wedding day, threatening to embarrass them publicly.

“We raised the money and gave him and asked him to return the suit,” she said.

She said after waiting in vain for him to return it, she went to his house at 74, Yaya Crescent, Olodi Apapa, Lagos to collect it.

Ify said when she knocked and entered his room and told him her mission, he locked her inside his room and held her neck and pushed her to the wall.

She said she started shouting for help before their neighbours intervened.

In his defence, Chris told P.M.NEWS that he had an agreement with Ify’s husband that he will pay him the money after the wedding.

He said he only demanded his money before the wife got angry and came to his house to demand for the suit.

The action of Chris landed him in court where he is facing a three-count charge of assault, false imprisonment and stealing.

The offences he committed are contrary to Sections 166, 171 and 285 of the Criminal Code Law of Lagos State of Nigeria 2011.

After he pleaded not guilty, the Magistrate, Mrs. A. K. Shonubi, granted him bail in the sum of N30,000 with one surety in like sum.

The matter was adjourned till 25 September, 2012, while Chris was remanded in prison custody until he meets his bail condition.

What a funny story! The same man who could not let go of 11,000 for suit will pay 30,000 for bail for force. SMH
Re: Couple Sends Best-man To Prison Over Wedding Suit by aduje(m): 3:05pm On Aug 29, 2012
Aunty Ify, pls be careful. your marriage is just too young to begin to go into legal tussles. I believe the bestman is a friend to you, your husband or both of you. Why not look at the past with the future in mind. The cost of the suit is much more than the undue publicity your marital life is getting. DO NOT FORGET WE ARE STILL AFRICANS.

It`s quite a sad news.Think before you act and not act before you think..Life has thought me how to let things go especially when my existence does not depend on it.Chris was quite immature and inconsiderate,i hope at the next hearing of the case his lawyer will give the court a reasonable explanation why he did not return the suit after he has been paid for it.The Nigerian Psyche.

That woman is the problem. She had the guts to enter the man's room to demand for the suit in this era of loose rapist. I can imagine what she spewed out while asking for the suit. I pity the husband because this woman is a trouble maker. She will take the fight to her in-laws soon.
