Man Marries Second Wife After He Was Given N100K To Take Care Of His 7 Children
A Nigerian scriptwriter and teacher identified as Harachi has recounted how a man who was given a sum of money to fend for his 7 children allegedly used the money to wed a new wife.
According to Twitter user identified as @purpleandflawed on the bird app, an NGO donated hundred thousand Naira to the Hausa man to start a business as well as feed his 7 children.
Upon checking up on him another time, the NGO found out that the Hausa man had used the money to marry a second wife.
Harachi wrote on the microblogging platform:
So Last month this NGO that my friend works with in Jos gave this Hausa man 100thousand to start a buisness and feed his 7 children better, they had gone back this afternoon to find out that Oga used the money to marry a second wife. I dont know if one should laugh or cry.
