All brides want their wedding to look colourful and beautiful with their female friends standing out in unique Aso-Ebi. But is it compulsory to go for the aso-ebi trend if you cannot afford it? So is the case of Mrs Anifowose who has been owing a fabric merchant for 6months and unable to pay.
According to Vanguard, a housewife in Ekiti, Kehinde Anifowose, has been sued in Ikole Customary court by a trader, Dele Omotoyinbo for incurring a debt of N90,400 she spent during her wedding. The complainant claims that she supplied Aso-Ebi fabrics valued at N90,400 to the defendant during her wedding in Sept 2015 which the latter failed to pay.
The case was first heard before the court on February 15, during which Mrs Anifowose wrote an undertaking to pay the money in instalments, with an initial payment of N30,000 at the end of February.
When the date came, the bride’s father’s showed up with no sign of the bride herself. Mr Joseph told the court his daughter was ill and was able to pay only N21,000.The father appealed to the court to give the bride time to pay the money and promised to assist his daughter to meet the payment condition.
The Court’s presiding officer, Mrs Yemisi Ojo, however warned that the money must be fully paid by the end of April or the law would take its course. Omotoyinbo was however not satisfied with this as she said the debt owed her had affected her business negatively.
