A Nigerian lady has called off her wedding to her eight-year boyfriend after he used money meant for the preparations to gamble and lost it all.

The devastated lady, simply identified as Linda, recounted the incident on an online relationship platform, stating that she was excited at finally settling down with her lover after eight years, but his addiction to gambling ruined it all.

According to the lady, she knew about his gambling habits but thought he would change; however, she learned the hard way when he didn’t even spare funds meant for their wedding preparation and sadly lost it all.

“Gambling and betting actually ended my relationship of 8 years, when we were about getting married. I am a lady, I was thinking he would change, he plays the betting they call virtual “baby”, the money meant for the wedding preparation he wasted it in that game, I had to cancel the wedding.” She narrated.

Meanwhile, Big Brother Naija star and influencer, Tochi, has advised men against dating women who cannot support them financially.

The former Big Brother Naija housemate gave this advice recently in a post via his Instagram stories.

In his opinion, a man should run if his woman cannot pay a bill of N500k in the event that his own card declines.

“If your girlfriend cannot chest a bill of N500k when your card declines, remove your shoes and run”, he wrote.
