Woman drags ex-lover to court for refusing to marry her




A 29-year-old jilted woman, Adaeze Eboh, has dragged her estranged lover, Kalu Samuel, before Isolo Magistrate’ court after he allegedly duped and jilted her for another woman. Samuel, who lives at 46, Akinbaye street, Isolo, met Adaeze Eboh who resides at 17, Ashiri Abo street, also in Isolo and promised to marry her last year.

According to the police, sometime in July 2015, Samuel approached Eboh and requested money from her to set up his phone business. Barely five months after he collected N147,000 from her, he told her that he was no longer interested in the relationship.

An embittered Eboh asked him to return the money she gave him when the going was good and he refused. In the process, Samuel reportedly assaulted her and chased her away.

Samuel was charged with obtaining under false pretence and assault under the Criminal Code. He pleaded not guilty, saying it was not his decision not to marry Eboh but rather his family’s wish and that he cannot marry her against their tradition in Ohafia, Abia State.

The presiding Magistrate, Mrs. Joy Ugbomoiko, granted him bail in the sum of N20,000 with one surety in like sum. He was remanded in prison custody pending when he will perfect his bail. The matter has been adjourned till January 2016.
