A Nigerian man has been left wallowing in debts after he borrowed a whopping N800,000 (₵12,000) to sponsor his lavish wedding thinking he could recoup the money through cash gifts from the wedding guests.
Unfortunately, his ‘stingy’ guests only gifted him ‘physical’ gifts like gas cylinders and other inexpensive items which were grossly opposite to his expectations.
The intriguing incident as shared by a Twitter user reveals that the man took a loan of N500k from a microfinance bank and N300k from his office so that he could organize a dream wedding as requested by his wife’s mother.
See below for the full story;
