The charge against her read; “The complainant and the defendant started dating in July, 2020 and after a long courtship, the complainant proposed to the defendant in January, 2021 which the defendant accepted.

“Based on the defendant’s acceptance to marry the complainant, the defendant started collecting money from the complainant with the belief that all her responsibilities and that of her children and parents are to be catered by the complainant.

“From the day you promised to marry the complaint, he has expended N6.7million on you which you are aware of and he has expended nothing less than N3.2million in preparation for the wedding.”  

The lady was admitted bail of N500,00 with two sureties in like sum. One of the sureties must be a relation of the defendant working with a relevant organsation and the other a neighbour.
