August 28, 2012 – Best Man Jailed Over Wedding Suit

Mrs. Ify Anyanwu, A newly married woman, has arrested and charged to a Lagos court her husband’s bestman, Chris Abasuonu for assaulting her when she demanded the suit he wore as her husband’s bestman during their wedding.

The 31- year old Chris was charged before Apapa Magistrate’s court where he was remanded in prison custody.

Trouble started between the couple and Chris on their wedding day.

Chris started demanding N11,000 from Ify’s husband, saying that was the amount he spent on sewing his suit for the wedding.

When the woman heard it, she felt embarrassed and shocked over Chris’ attitude just as the couple was settling down after the wedding.

She reportedly gave him the money and asked him to return the suit since he had collected the money.

Though Chris said he collected the money, he did not return the suit.

According to Ify, after the wedding, Chris started telling neighbours that her husband borrowed money for their wedding.

She said Chris later started demanding from them the money he used to sew the suit on their wedding day, threatening to embarrass them publicly.

“We raised the money and gave him and asked him to return the suit,” she said.

She said after waiting in vain for him to return it, she went to his house at 74, Yaya Crescent, Olodi Apapa, Lagos to collect it.

Ify said when she knocked and entered his room and told him her mission, he locked her inside his room and held her neck and pushed her to the wall.

She said she started shouting for help before their neighbours intervened.

In his defence, Chris said he had an agreement with Ify’s husband that he will pay him the money after the wedding.

He said he only demanded his money before the wife got angry and came to his house to demand for the suit.

The action of Chris landed him in court where he is facing a three-count charge of assault, false imprisonment and stealing.

The offences he committed are contrary to Sections 166, 171 and 285 of the Criminal Code Law of Lagos State of Nigeria 2011.

After he pleaded not guilty, the Magistrate, Mrs. A. K. Shonubi, granted him bail in the sum of N30,000 with one surety in like sum.

Chris has been remanded in prison until his bail condition is met.

His court case has been adjourned till Sept 25, 2012(pmreport).
