A 25-year-old undergraduate, David (surname withheld) has been ordered by the Upper Area Court II, Gombe, to pay the sum of  N80,000 to his fiancée, Binta Williams, as part of claims for the ‘damages’ he inflicted on her within the two years in which they lived together as lovers.
David was accused by Williams of co-habiting and using her through out the period of their two year relationship while promising to marry her.
The accused, confessed that he had impregnated Williams twice and had both pregnancies terminated, while promising to marry her, but implored her to wait three more years for him to graduate.
Nigerian Eye reports:
Williams revealed to the court that the accused had harassed her and thrown her belongings away, telling her that the “relationship is over,” and that despite all her efforts to resolve issues, he did not want to see her again.
Williams also said that she had reported him to the nearest police station for them to be reconciled.
“He used and dumped me, after sleeping with me for quite long; he said he would marry me, but he didn’t. Now, I am claiming damages of humanity,” Wiliams told the court.Binta prayed the court to make David pay her the sum of N500,000 for the damages, but the judge, Alhaji Salihu Baffa, advisedly ruled that the accused pay her the above mentioned amount.

  1. I think the judge is missing something. Abortion is a crime in our constitution. Both should be behind bars, the lady for committing murder and the man being an accomplice.
