A Nigerian woman has allegedly pulled off a cunning scheme, deceiving her friends by staging a fake wedding and using the money they paid for her wedding attire to fund her trip to Canada.
This intriguing incident was brought to light by a tweet from @AkiMarlin on the popular social media platform, X (formerly known as Twitter), and has since captured the attention of many.
The tweet revealed that the lady had duped her friends into believing she was getting married, convincing them to purchase Asoebi (traditional wedding attire) and a hand fan for the event, for which they paid 50k and 10k respectively.
However, her friends soon discovered that the entire wedding was a fabrication when she mysteriously disappeared and was nowhere to be found at the designated location for the bridal shower. To everyone’s surprise, she had secretly flown off to Canada.

She gave bridal location at a hotel, some of her friends came there &she wasn’t there. Long story short she flew to Canada next day, there was actually no wedding. She’s a popular vendor around IMSU”
