Nigerian Lady Calls off Marriage after Man Paid Close to N1m for Bride Price, Photos of the List Spark Outrage.


A Nigerian lady has been dragged on social media after she cancelled her marriage

- The cancellation comes after the boyfriend had paid the bride price that was close to a million naira

- Nigerians expressed shock at the content of the bride price



A Nigerian lady is at the centre of social media troll after she called off her marriage.

Narrating the story, a woman identified as Amanda Chisom on Facebook, said the lady (whose identity she did not disclose) had messaged her about how she made a guy who wasn't well to do to pay her bride price close to N1 million.

According to Amanda, the marriage was to be in absentia.


She wrote:

"So this babe in the inbox story today made this guy who is obviously not financial so stable dole out close to a million to marry her in absentia only to call off the marriage .
"What happens to the money he spent on her very hungry family yes because if my brother comes home with this list to marry anybody’s daughter I will ask him if they are giving out apple stocks with her . Should he not be suing her for breach of promise. How can anybody be this wicked?"

This Isn't funny..

Imo state and high bride price is like Boko Haram and terrorism.

No wonder their women are now Oto na aka.

Meanwhile the bride price must be returned...no two ways about it.

This is sad and outright wickedness

Arrrrrrrh

If you can arrest a girl who you send money to as T P, and she didn't come and yet she spend the money, then, why is it that i can't arrest and probe her family ? They must pay everything.

Igbo girls wey I love like mad. But their bride price is something that is always[s][/s] bothering me.

Wait wait ,how will I pay close to 1 milli on a girl that will come and stay in my house, I will fend for her like training a child?
Mba nuh !!
Negode i Wont oo !
If bride price can cause us our separate ways then so be it. Peace of mind is better than paying loan after marriage.. cheesy

I'm from Imo state and I can tell you something.

Those list of items were made way back in time when the cost of those items were very little but today owing to the economic reality of the present time, it has become so outrageous.

But u see these other ones like
Waiting for the In-law 50k
Eze money..
Secretary money..
Those ones boils down to greed and a total rip off from from the bride's family.

Lol... Outrage ko Power Outage ni
it's even my maternal home sef Ikeduru
Nwanne ga chowa Ego grin

Am pretty sure 80% of that list was made for umunna, umu youth and their likes the hatred I have for that umunna rubbish eh

Na only when you wan marry they will remember that your a relative even those wey you no know and those that doesn't know your name will be screaming 'Owu nwa anyi'

And Op that is marriage list not Bride price

This doesn't imply to every Igbo family I know a man that married off his daughter with only the denominations as bride price (N5, N10, N20,.....N1000)and just few items not less than 10k for umunna and their likes although they were pissed but the man stood his ground it's his daughter and his decision is final so they can't do shit

So it depends on the family you marry into not Igbo culture just pray they are not greedy

Go to Imo,so many of their girls are roaming about cos there is no man to marry them. Some have resorted to giving birth out of wedlock and next thing is prostitution straight.Their problem is their elders that wrote that list.

Later, supporters will come and argue that it represents some compensation to parents for the upbringing of a daughter and for lost earnings in the case of a breadwinning female offspring. I don't understand
