A Nigerian father has sued his son named Chijioke to get a refund of N50 million he gave him to run a family business.
Chijioke was dragged to Justice Court by his father. Justice Court is a Nigerian Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) reality court programme aired on TV for the settlement of small civil disputes and is presided over by Funmilayo Asaolu.
A video from their date in court was shared on TikTok and got many people talking.
In the clip, the judge lamented about people not appreciating what they have until it is lost and told Chijioke that his father is in a pitiable state but is not asking for everything.

"Out of N50 million, let him give me N20 million first. He is not worthy of the trust a father should have on his son. I gave him a cheque of N50m, he went and grabbed the money. Let him return the N50m, what is he doing with the money?," his father spoke with anger and disappointment.
The man said that Chijioke made a fool of him and doesn't want him to run the business anymore.
"Has he made N1m? Has he made N100k himself? I don't trust him. He is not worthy of any trust.
