A Nigerian man residing abroad has voiced his frustration as his wife allegedly spent the 10 million naira he sent for acquiring two plots of land.

According to the account, the man, who remains unidentified, had entrusted his younger brother with the funds, resulting in the successful acquisition of three plots of land, with construction underway on one of them.

The details were shared on Facebook by Kelvin Onovo. The man claimed that upon discovering the ongoing construction project managed by his younger brother, his wife strongly opposed the idea of moving into the house upon completion.

Reportedly, the wife perceived it as an insult that her husband’s sibling was managing the finances, expressing her discontent with the arrangement while she was still alive.

The frustrated husband declared his intention to take another wife if his current spouse refused to move into the completed house. He highlighted the sacrifices he had made, depriving himself of luxuries abroad to secure a home for his family, only to be met with resistance from his wife.

The post reads, “From my DM: ‘Good evening Sir Kelvin. I read your post about being abroad and sending money to family to get properties. Mine was my dear wife; the first 10 million I sent to secure 2 plots of land went down the drain…'”

“Subsequently, I had to start sending to my younger brother, who I knew could be trusted with funds, and truly, he didn’t disappoint. We got 3 plots of land and started something on one, but my dear wife told me she won’t move into the house when completed as it was an insult to her as a wife for my brother to be in charge of ‘her husband’s money’ while she’s still alive.”

“Bro, if after that house is completed and my wife doesn’t move in, I am taking another wife ASAP. I deprive myself of luxury here just to get them a place to call theirs, but see her action.”

The post quickly went viral, eliciting various opinions from netizens. Here are some reactions:

William A Mentus commented, “You gave her the power to say that. If you had questioned her, asked for details about your 10 million, or even considered ending the marriage, and she begged, all this wouldn’t have happened. Amen.”

Ezekiel Paul remarked, “Addressing her as your wife still sounds silly to me. Isn’t it obvious she doesn’t share in your vision? Your plans mean nothing to her because she secretly has hers going on. Only God knows what she’s been up to with some dudes in the hood while you’re away. Yeah, I’m judgmental like that.”

Jennifer Edmond suggested, “If she doesn’t want to live there, drag her to the house. She should be feeling remorseful, but stubbornness still lingers in her head.”

Chioma Ethel Ugwuja questioned, “What on earth did someone use 10 million for without any good explanation?”

Anita Chidera Harddõllãr expressed, “I actually cannot support you because I haven’t heard her side of the story. Her spending 10 million that way is quite out of context, but when you married her, you should have known she’s a spender and how to manage her spending habits. I can’t judge or support you until her side of the story is heard.”
