A newly wedded Nigerian woman has lamented after her sisters-in-law took the wedding gifts purchased for her by her family members.
The lady who shared her story anonymously on a closed group said she got married three weeks ago and while she was leaving her family house, her family members presented their wedding gifts to her.
The lady who gave her name as Prisca said she was given a microwave, washing machine, two sewing machines, a toaster, and many other items which she took to her mother-in-law's house.
She said she later travelled to her mother-in-law's house where the items were stored for her to go and pick them up and to her surprise, she did not find them there.
Her mother-in-law informed her that her daughters, who are married, came and picked some of the items. Prisca said she called her husband who is the only son of the family and he asked her to leave the place.
Prisca has vowed to put up a fight since the items were purchased by her own family members for her and also expressed disappointment at her husband who according to her did not stand up for her.
