A Nigerian man has reportedly dragged a Kannywood actress identified as Hadiza Gabon to court for refusing to marry him after spending his money.
The man, Bala Musa said he has been dating Gabon for some time now and this while she assured him that their relationship could move to the next level.
The matter which has ended up in court, saw the disgruntled man telling the jury that he has spent the total sum of N396,000 on the actress and gives her money whenever she requests.
“So far I have spent N396,000 on her. Anytime she asks for money, I give her without hesitation with the hope that we will marry.
“She also failed to show up in Gusau, Zamfara where I live after I made all arrangements to host her,” he said.
Counsel to the defendant, Mr Mubarak Kabir, said his client, who was not in court, could not confirm the man’s claims as her position as a celebrity attracts different kinds of people to her life.
He said; ”My client’s position as a celebrity attracts different kinds of people with different intentions. She is very vigilant regarding her safety and security”.
Kabir further prayed the court to avail him more time so that he can produce his client.
The presiding judge, Malam Rilwanu Kyaudai, adjourned the case till June 13.
Hadiza Gabon, born Hadiza Aliyu, is a Nigerian professional actress and filmmaker who acts in both Hausa and English movies.
