His fiancée’s family presented him with a N1.2m marriage list when he went for introduction in Tombu village, Buruku Local Government Area of Benue State, but what he could come up with was N600,000.

The story was shared on Facebook by the man’s friend, Udam Samuel Aseer, who disclosed that they insisted on not taking anything less than the items on the list which total N1.2m.

He wrote, “My Friend couldn’t marry his Girlfriend with 600k, as in-laws insist on N1.2m marriage list. Tiv Traditional Council voice out pls.

The girl is madly in love with my friend and vice versa, but all efforts to honor her before her parents with the marriage list, they presented to us in Tombu, Buruku LGA proof abortive and we bowed out back to Mkd this evening.”

Meanwhile, in related news…

The Idoma Area Traditional Council of Benue State ordered that any family whose daughter is getting married can no longer demand more than N50,000 as bride price from in-laws.

The paramount ruler of Idoma nation, the Ochidoma, His Royal Majesty Elaigwu John, in his New Year message directed that bride price should be N50,000 or below.

The monarch, who is an ex-Deeper Life Pastor, said the reforms were undertaken by the Idoma Area Traditional Council after wide consultations with rulers, political leaders, and their subjects.

He added; “Our deliberations arrived at the following conclusions for the immediate adherence of all true Idoma people, clans, tongues, and people under the Idoma Area Traditional Council.

“Imposition of costly prescriptions, stipulations, and requirements on the bereaved family for the burial rites of a deceased person is hereby prohibited in Idomaland.

“Burial rites should be conducted within affordable means of the family and, as much as possible, concluded within two to three weeks from the date of death.”
