Bride In Court Over N90,000 Aso-Ebi Wedding Debt

A housewife, Kehinde Anifowose, has appeared before an Ikole Customary Court over a debt of N90,400 she incurred during her wedding.




A trader, Dele Omotoyinbo, dragged the bride to court, claiming that she supplied Aso-Ebi fabrics valued N90,400 to the defendant during her wedding in Sept 2015 but failed to pay.

The case was first heard before the court on February 15, during which Anifowose wrote an undertaking to pay the money in instalment, with an initial payment of N30,000 at the end of February.

When the case came up on Monday, the bride was not in court, but her father, Mr Joseph Anifowose, told the court that his daughter was ill.
He however said the she was able to raise the sum of N21, 000 out of the N30, 000 she promised to pay for the month of February.

The father appealed to the court to give the bride time to pay the money and promised to assist his daughter to meet the payment condition.

The complainant, however, lamented that the debt owed her was having negative effect on her business.
The Court’s presiding officer, Mrs Yemisi Ojo, warned that the money must be fully paid by the end of April or the law would take its course.

She adjourned the case till April 4 for continuation of hearing.

The length people go to impress others on their wedding is surprising

De Unbreakable said...

Am sure if she were a BV, she would have sent in a plea for help.

What happen to cutting your coat according to your cloth?

All this trying to show off isn't necessary nau, why not choose (a) colour(s) for the day and let people sort themselves out.

Perhaps alot of people who collect these asoebi's never pay for them,

you chase them for money until you are faced with the option of letting go.

Somethings are really avoidable nau, haba.

This is the consequence of refusing to cut your coat according to your cloth ... my father will say "it is living in a full paradise but that is self deceit because life is not a paradise"

Because I remember my teacher in kindergarten spell out the words " life is not a bed of roses " that was the first time I heard it. Now I understand we must live within our means...

For what shall it promise a bride to have a lavish wedding in a field full of butterflies that are released to the air when she says "I do" only to have her father cover her shame for her in court because the bell of igbese came ringing???


Why did I even type all these sef?

Bride gbese you should have cut your cloth according to the size of your pocket. When they tell women to marry responsibly, they won't hear. If her husband couldn't pay, couldn't he appear in court with her? Why her father?

D lady must have used d asoebi money for other things. What about d husband. So he couldn't cover his wife from shame. D father must have been embarrassed to even come to court and promised to assist. It is well
