Lady drags man to court for exposing her after she didn't show up at his place

Meanwhile, previously reported that a Nigerian man was dragged to court by a lady who he exposed over her failure to show up at his house after he sent her GHC20 transport fare.

Narrating why he dragged her, Lubem said they became good friends on Facebook after a series of chats.

According to him, Kor said she had wanted to know him better and this made him send her GHC20 to come over as her place wasn't far from his. Lubem said she had actually told him her t-fare was GHC7 but he sent an extra GHC13 to demonstrate his generosity.
