On Monday, Gaddafi Abdullahi, 25-year-old man, has prayed a Shari’a court in Kaduna State to recover N68,000 dowry from his former fiancée’s brother, Abu Tanko.

The complainant told the court that he sought Tanko’s sister, Rabi’s hand in marriage and paid N60,000 dowry and N8,000 as an introduction fee.

“A date was fixed for the wedding but Rabi later told me that she wasn’t interested in marrying me. I want the court to help me recover all that I spent for the botched wedding,” he said.

”The complainant’s family called off the wedding,” he said.

The Judge, Malam Salisu Abubakar-Tureta, ordered the court officials to have a look at the furniture bought by the defendant.

The court adjourned the case until March 2.
