This story was a real life story. The case involved a young man who sued one lady and her parents to court for rejecting his marriage proposal. In that case, the said young man sued the said lady and her parents to court, demanding for a refund of a certain amount of money.
When that case came up for hearing in the court, the man in his submission was demanding that the lady and her parents should refund him a certain amount of money which he claimed to have used to sponsor the lady throughout her university education.
What actually brought about the case was that the lady in question turned down or rejected the man’s marriage proposal, refusing to marry the man after she graduated from the university and as well as did her youth service in Nigeria.
In his submission, the man argued that it is either the lady accepts to marry him or that she and her parent should refund him the said amount which he claimed he spent in sponsoring her university education.
Unknown to the lady, the man had been keeping a secret record in a small diary where he recorded every dime he ever gave the lady, both for her school fees and pocket money for her feeding. He recorded the amount; the date and time he gave her the money.
After the man was done in his submission, stating the total amount he was demanding that should be refunded to him, tendering that diary as evidence.
Initially, it seems that everybody that was in the court that heard his submission that day was against the lady and her parent.
However, the lady remained adamant and unruffled as the man was presenting his case. You could recall that a similar incident occurred in August 2020 which went viral on the net.

Back to our story, the man after he ended his submission, he tendered that small diary as evidence. As said, the diary contained the record of every dime he ever spent on the lady throughout the duration of her four years university education.
When the man was done in his submission, the lady was called upon to prepare for her defense after 10 minutes court break. Personally I was in the court myself as I wanted to know the outcome of that case.
I wish also to report that during the court break, I overheard the family members of the young man calling the lady and her parent gold diggers, saying that they must refund to their brother every dime he spent on her if she refused to marry their brother.
After the court recovered after the 10 minutes break, the lady was called upon to make her defense. Before the lady started her defense, she first thanked the man, acknowledging that the man used to give her money when she was in the university.
However, the lady argued that even though the man used to give her some money when she was in the university, that the man still owed her some amount of money which she argued the court should compel him to refund her rather than she or her parent refunding the man.
In other words, she argued that neither her nor her parents were the person to refund the man but rather it was the man that needed to refund her some amount based on the total amount the man mentioned in his submission that he said was the total he spent in sponsoring her in the university.
The lady arguing that it was the man that still owes her made the crowd in the court to bust into laughter wanting to know how it was the man that owed her.
It was for that reason that the presiding judge asked the lady to expatiate more on what she meant or why she was arguing that it was the man that still owed her.
It was at this juncture that the lady pulled out from her bag a small diary which she tendered as evidence in the court.
