A Nigerian man has dragged his former fiancée to court over her refusal to pay rent for his house which she lived in for years.
Narrating what transpired, the disgruntled man said he and his ex-fiancee decided to move in together in 2019, and the house rent was N300,000 per annum. He said they agreed that he will pay N200,000 while she pays the remaining N100,000.
He said she paid her part in 2019/20 but refused to fulfil her end of the bargain in 2020/21, claiming that she lost her job.
Following his investigation, he discovered that she did not lose her job as claimed, and secretly secured her own apartment.
She then broke off their engagement and said she wanted to move out, but he insisted that she must pay the outstanding payment of N100k.
The young lady, in her defense, said they did not have an agreement and she was only supporting him with the rent payment.
According to her, she decided to break up with him because he started treating her like trash after they started cohabiting, and stopped doing the things that made her fall in love with him at the onset of their relationship.
In his response, the man said they had a verbal agreement, and he did not expressly tell her to live in his house for free. However, the lady maintained that she did not agree to pay rent.
Following the back and forth between the estranged couple, Justice Williams, in her judgement, ordered the lady to pay the N100k because the benefits she enjoyed as his fiancée was annulled after she broke up with him.
