After receiving the bride price list from his future in-laws, a man looking to settle down has reportedly canceled his marriage plans.
He had gone to perform the introductory rites and had been handed a bride price list of products worth nearly 2.5 million naira.
The man decided to disappear after seeing the outrageous list, as he never returned and neither his girlfriend nor her family have seen him since that day.
The story was shared on social media by Twitter user @TheTawah_, who is also a friend of the affected man.
”They gave my friend bride price list of almost ₦2.5m since last year , they haven’t seen my guy till now.”

@PetersEdidiong; Most time its bants at least where I’m from (Akwa-Ibom). We say “marriage is a debt that cannot be paid in one day, one is forever indebted” It basically has to do with d grooms family showing respect and regard for them. You might even end up not paying half of their demands.
@NwanyiNkwobi; They cant try it with me. I wee go and catch belle with the man… How can they want to suffer my marriage. In fact na ejima belle sef. Do court marriage and whenever una ready, una go call us.

@IpuoleJoseph1; Why they go see am. Even if you wan sell your child sef you no go bill the man like that. Ladies better start talking to your parents o before men go the treat una anyhow for house. I’m sure things like this contribute to Domestic violence.
