60 years old Man sues girlfriend for refusing to marry him
A 60-year-old married man, Salisu Nuhu has sued his girlfriend, Janet Baru for turning down his marriage proposal after claiming to have spent much money for her without having sex with her.
Nuhu told the Magajin Gari Sharia Court II sitting in Kaduna that his girlfriend 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 narrated before the court that, “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. Praying the court to assist him in retrieving all the monies he spent on her.
Meanwhile, the accused on her part, said before the court that, 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.
