Enugu magistrate court has ordered a lady, Chinasa Nwibeh, to pay her boyfriend, Mr. Emeka Nwankwo the sum of N150,000 for emotional abuse.
This was after Chinasa Nwibeh collected the sum of N3,000 as transport to visit Mr. Emeka Nwankwo, which she later refused.
Consequently, she was taken to court after she was arrested by the Nigerian police at Enugu state command.
Chinasa after receiving the said amount switched off her phone.
The boyfriend went to a nearby police station and reported the case and she was arrested.
The court, therefore, ordered the culprit to pay a fine of N100,000 with an additional interest of N50,000 for emotional damages, totaling N150,000 because the boyfriend was emotionally abused by the absence of the girlfriend.
The boyfriend, Emeka Nwankwo brought evidence to the court of the mobile money transfer made to her and all the WhatsApp messages they shared.
The Judge in her ruling said this was done to serve as a deterrent to ladies who indulge in such a criminal act.
