Meanwhile, a man identified as Mubarak Saleh has narrated how a wedding almost crashed because the groom refused to provide the exact amount of money the bride’s family requested for purchase of perfumes.
He said the bride’s family asked the groom for N200,000 after he already paid dowry and delivered the boxed needed for the engagement ceremony in Maiduguri, Borno State.
The groom, who paid N200k dowry and N800k for boxes, said he can only give them N50,000, that if they would not accept it then the wedding can be called off.
But the bride’s father said perfumes should not be the reason the wedding is canceled so he collected the N50k.
Mubarak said; “A wedding almost crashed bcos of perfume (Turaren wuta). Bride family demanded 200k for d perfume, after paying dowry &d boxes (lefe). D groom said it’s either they accept 50k or call off d wedding, d bride’s father collected d 50k & said money for perfume won’t stop d wedding
