Tension as young Nigerian teacher gets N1.5million list of items from prospective in-laws

Coming after a Benue Monarch banned intending grooms in his community, from spending more than N100, 000 on traditional wedding, a young graduate who teaches in a private secondary school has fallen victim of the ‘overblown’ marriage list.

According to Idoma Voice, the teacher who earns a monthly salary of N75,000 was asked by his prospective Benue in-laws to bring five jerry cans of palm oil, one goat, two cartons of beer, two crates of soft drinks and eight thousand naira before he would be given the list of items to buy and pay for.

He went, presented the items to them and they gave him a list of more items worth N1.5M.

This excludes other logistic and miscellaneous expenses he may incur during the traditional marriage and church wedding. According to Idomavoice, the bride to be is still a student.
