A man is being dragged to pay for his alleged callousness after he dumped a woman he collected as much as N1.9 million to marry.
Mr Ebuka Okeke, a 29-year old man, has been arrested and charged before a Lagos court for allegedly obtaining N1.9m from a single lady identified as Ogochukwu Ogbuehi under the false pretence that he will marry her but dumped her thereafter.
P. M. Express reports that apart from obtaining the money, Okeke brought a baked cake and made her take an oath that she will not tell anyone that he collected the said money to marry her. The incident happened between March and July this year at the Iyana Ipaja area of Lagos where the suspect and the complainant reside.
The suspect also went to the victim’s shop and drank assorted drinks worth N20,000 without paying at the same period. However, it turned out that it was a scam and ploy Okeke used to obtain money from her as he did not fulfill his own side of the bargain.
Ogochukwu waited for Okeke to come and perform the marriage rites as they agreed but he was not forthcoming. She asked to know why he had not fulfilled his promise and he gave flimsy excuses. The lady then demanded for her money but he refused giving her back. The matter was reported to the Police at Area M Command, Idimu. Okeke was then arrested and taken to the Command for interrogation.
It was gathered that Okeke admitted that he collected the said amount from her and also promised to marry her. He said he found it difficult to convince his family to accept the lady because she was far older than him. He also explained that he had spent the money and asked to be given time to pay her in bits.
Okeke was charged before the Ejigbo Magistrates court for obtaining under false pretence and placing the victim under false oath.
He pleaded not guilty and the presiding Magistrate, Mr Akeem Fashola granted him bail in the sum of N50,000 with two sureties in like sum.
He was remanded in prison custody pending when he will perfect the bail condition and the matter was further adjourned till 18th of October, 2017.
