Court tells lady to pay N150k for collecting N3k from man as TFare and not showing up
An Enugu court has reportedly awarded N150k in damages against a lady after she collected N3k to visit a man but failed to show up.
A Nigerian lawyer @Egi_nupe_ who shared the story on Twitter said that the lady switched off her phone after collecting the money and this infuriated the man.
The displeased man approached the Enugu law court and won. In the judgement, the magistrate held that the lady’s act was deceitful.
The sum awarded was intended to serve as a deterrent to other ladies with such deceitful behaviours.
The tweets blew up and sparked a debate among both genders as people weighed in on the matter.
