A man has demanded to be compensated by his wife because of the stress he went through for her sake even though he enjoyed her only for two weeks.
Mr. Echele Idah, on Wednesday, November 16, 2016 told a Grade 1 Area Court, Aso Pada, Mararaba, Nasarawa State, that he got married to Gloria in 2013, but ended up spending two weeks with her before she left to an unknown destination.
Idah presented evidence of payments for the traditional marriage rites, a union which legally ended in August 2016.
He demanded repayment of N200,000, as compensation for all the troubles he went through.
“Apart from other minor expenses, I paid N300, 000 into ECObank and N70, 000 into GT Bank for her father and mother’s traditional rites respectively as requested by them.
“Also, N119,000 was paid to The Young Shall Grow Motors, Mararaba to convey both my family and that of Gloria to Isi Ala Ngwa, Abia State, Gloria’s home town.
“After many months of her disappearance, she called to tell me that she was now married to another man.
“I reported the matter severally to her parents, but what I got was a threat, that I should find their daughter.
“Before she divorced me, I made several efforts to locate her but to no avail. I spoke with one Mr. Matthew, who claimed to be her husband, through her phone.
“I demand a compensation of N200, 000 for frustrating my efforts and all the troubles and money I spent in search of her,” he said.
However, counsel to the respondent, Mr. Anayo Lebechi, objecting to all the evidence brought by Idah, said that he only paid N10,000.
After listening to both parties, the judge, Albert Maga adjourned the case for further hearing.
