After collecting the N3k fare, the court orders the lady to pay the man N150K for failing to appear.

A guy who sued a woman who broke an agreement reportedly won the sum of N150,000 in damages from an Enugu Magistrate court.

He had given the woman N3,000 as transportation costs with the understanding that she would see him, but she never showed up.

After that, he took her to court for receiving money under false pretenses, and the chief magistrate ordered her to pay him N150k. The petitioner informed the judge that she turned off her phone after receiving the money he had provided.

A lawyer with the handle @egi nupe on Twitter publicized the story and said the magistrate had granted the woman damages as a deterrent.

He wrote; “A court in Enugu has reportedly set a good precedent by awarding damages of 150k against a lady. She was given 3k as transport fare to visit a guy and after collecting the money, she switched off her phone and refused to visit him. Infuriated by her action, he reported and sued her for deceit.

In the judgement, the magistrate held that the lady’s action was deceitful and awarded the sum of 150k against her to serve as deterrence to others with such deceitful behavior.”
