She agreed and subsequently purchased a motorcycle worth N80,000. She however asked him to remit N180,000 to her and he agreed.

However, the man broke the contract after paying up to N80,000 which the lady used in buying the motorcycle. He insisted that since they were friends, the interest shouldn't be attached.

Lady takes friend to court

The angry lady took him to court and pleaded with the judge to help her get the remaining money.

She told the court:

"He paid for two months and stopped. He said he doesn't know what I'm talking about. That I bought the machine N80,000. Why am I adding N100,000 to it?
"He paid me only N80,000. It is remaining N100,000. He has refused to pay. He is still using the okada. He said he cannot pay, that he doesn't understand what I am saying."

In his defence, the bike man said:

"Na me sign the contract but she be my friend. I meet am make she help me find motorcycle. She buy the machine N80,000 and told me to pay her N180,000. I agree. I even give her N2,000 from my pocket to buy card. Na my friend she suppose dey considerate. That money too much, I no fit pay am."

"Those of you shouting the interest is too much, I think you are not aware of what goes on in hire purchase. People pay as much as 100-150% of the cost."

Lady drags man to court over N1,500

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a Nigerian lady, Kor Saanmoyol Henrietta, has dragged a man she met on social media to Benue Magistrate Court after he called her out on Facebook for failing to show up despite collecting N1500 from him.

Sharing the court document as well as his chats with the lady on Facebook, the man named Luben Terkula accused Kor of defrauding him. He said she not only took his N1500 but defrauded him of airtime and data.

According to him, Kor said she had wanted to know him better and this made him send her N1500 to come over as her place wasn't far from his.
