While many people are known to cheat in their marriages, very few are often brazen enough to pull through with a deceptive scheme such as secretly wedding one woman while still legally married to another.
This appeared to be the case of a Nigerian man who recently had his traditional wedding to a second wife. Facebook use, Awele Ejiofor who revealed she is friends with him and his first wife, broke the news on Facebook.
Apparently, the man has left home after lying to his wife, Ify, that he was traveling to Bornu. According to Ify, his wife was in shock when she discovered that he didn’t go to Bornu but instead went to Warri for his traditional wedding to another woman.
Part of her writeup reads: “9 years Tobe. If she was a bad person, we would know. But she wasn’t. She took all the sh*t from you and your Mother, who controlled all you did.You got up from your bed, kissed her goodbye, told a story about going back to Borno, while you went to Warri same day for your traditional marriage.
We are Christians and Ndi Anioma and this, It is all shades of wrong!!!! You are first my friend before My friend’s husband. And I owe it to you to tell you the truth as your friend. I am disappointed in you!!!!!!
I have no words for the Grandma you married..She didn’t drag you down this lane.YOU BROKE YOUR VOWS. It’s you I have a bone to pick with..The people on your timeline cheering you will not be there when you meet your Waterloo.”
