Ongiri said he had trusted his wife fully while he was abroad, and he did not thus involve his mother in his dealings with his wife.

Even more shocking was that the mud-walled house was also incomplete.

"I tried reaching her yesterday and demanded to know where my house is and the money for investments that I had sent her. I also called her, but my calls went unanswered," he said.

"I truly thought I could trust her and that she was the one for me. I didn't know she could do this," the heartbroken man said.

He insisted he will have to recover his money from his wife so that he can rebuild himself.

In an initial video posted by the YouTuber, the woman confessed to having lied about building the house.

"The photos that I sent of an ongoing construction are from my neighbour. But you should forgive me. I am your wife," the woman said as the man broke into tears.

Mud house vs Block building

Speaking with Gbenga Murituala on the building structures, he mentioned the weakness of mud houses. He said:

"One thing about mud house houses is that you must roof it as soon as you get to the lintel level. Unlik a block house, you can't leave for rainfall. The day a mud house get to level, it must be covered."
