“Today, My cousin paid 1.5 million as bride price and 60k to collect the list plus the things on the list. Girl’s family said it’s N1.5 million because she’s a “graduate.” My cousin is a Medical Doctor/ Surgeon, but oh well! It doesn’t matter to them.”

“Let me guess, she’s from Imo state.”
“In this economy where are you guys seeing 1.5 million?”
“Is the girls father alive? Is the girls brothers alive? Is the girl alive? And they allowed it? This is not good for the girl long term. He’s going to remind her later that he ‘bought’ her and paid in full.”
“And the girl stood there, watched her people collect such amount from her husband-to-be?”
