A Nigerian lady is at the centre of social media troll after she called off her marriage.
Narrating the story, a woman identified as Amanda Chisom on Facebook, said the lady (whose identity she did not disclose) had messaged her about how she made a guy who wasn't well to do to pay her bride price close to N1 million.
According to Amanda, the marriage was to be in absentia.
"So this babe in the inbox story today made this guy who is obviously not financial so stable dole out close to a million to marry her in absentia only to call off the marriage .
"What happens to the money he spent on her very hungry family yes because if my brother comes home with this list to marry anybody’s daughter I will ask him if they are giving out apple stocks with her . Should he not be suing her for breach of promise. How can anybody be this wicked?"
Photos of the bride price list Amanda shared got many vexed. There were those who thought the list wasn't out of place.

"Beyond this list, the value of a good woman is inestimable, you can sell all you have to marry her but a bad woman, hmmmm. Don't go near even if they give you for free with a million dollar support fund."
Loveth Oge commented:
"Criminals...the whole family members and kindred.
"Everybody wey their name appear for that paper must be arrested and provide the morning accordingly."
Umezulike Desmond-Cruz reacted:
"If you give me this type of list...
"I will tear it before the whole Umunna and tell my would-be-bride to meet me in my apartment for an emergency meeting.
"The outcome of that meeting will determine if I am going to marry her or not."
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that an Igbo man had shared the marriage list he was given as he expressed surprise at its contents.
The Imo state indigene, in a Facebook post, said he had, out of surprise, questioned if the list was authentic.
He went on to ask his Facebook friends whether or not he should go on with the marriage plans.
Sharing photos of the list, he wrote:
"See list that i collected yesterday from my inlaw house I was like is this for real please Do I still continue or stop please ehime mbano people why."
