The journey of love

The couple's love life began in Kumasi in Ghana's Ashanti Region when Otu proposed marriage and funded Mercy's university study. As the romance proceeded, Otu moved Mercy to Tema at her mother's advice.

In Tema, he paid for Mercy's Higher National Diploma (HND) programme at the Accra Technical University (ATU) and her degree at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).

Otu also claims to have supported Mercy's younger brother and facilitated accommodation for her mother. However, the couple's love had an unexpected turn when Mercy informed Otu of her decision to end the relationship after securing employment at the bank.

Feeling betrayed and wanting reimbursement for his investments, Otu filed a GH¢350,000 lawsuit at the Kumasi Circuit Court. The lawsuit is reportedly pending, with sessions deferred until February 20.

How people reacted to the story of Otu and Mercy

Since emerging on social media, many, particularly men, supported Otu's legal action against his ex-lover. Others found it funny.

He's done well. If men will be strong to fight this, women scammers will stop. This is a crime as far as our laws are churned.

Interesting story. There should be a lot more involved, including promises, else I don’t see marriage as a reward for supporting a lady’s education.
