A Nigerian man living abroad has expressed his frustration after his wife allegedly spent the N10 million naira he sent to acquire two plots of land.
According to the report, the man, who remains unidentified, had entrusted his younger brother with the money, which resulted in the successful acquisition of three plots of land, with construction on one of them underway.
The details were shared on Facebook by Kelvin Onovo. The man claimed that when he discovered the ongoing construction project managed by his younger brother, his wife was strongly opposed to the idea of occupying the house upon completion.
The woman reportedly took it as an insult that her husband's sibling was managing the finances, and expressed her dissatisfaction with the arrangement while she was still alive.
The frustrated husband stated that he planned to take another wife if his current husband refused to move into the completed house. He emphasized the sacrifices he had made, denying himself luxuries abroad to secure a home for his family, but was met with resistance from his wife.
The message reads: “From my DM: 'Good evening, Sir Kelvin. I read your post about being abroad and sending money to family to get property. Mine was my dear wife; the first 10 million I sent to secure two plots of land was lost…''
'Next I had to start sending money to my younger brother, who I knew I could trust with the money, and he really didn't disappoint. We were given three plots of land and started something on one plot of land, but my dear wife told me that she would not move into the house when it was finished because it was an insult to her as a woman to have my brother in charge of 'it money from her husband'. 'while she's still alive.'
“Brother, if that house is finished and my wife doesn't move in, I will take another wife as soon as possible. I'm depriving myself of luxury here just to give them a place to call their own, but see her action.

The post quickly went viral and elicited several opinions from netizens. Here are some responses:
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, none of this would have happened. Amen.”
Ezekiel Paul noted, “Talking to her as your wife still sounds foolish to me. Isn't it clear that she doesn't share your views? Your plans mean nothing to her because she is secretly carrying out hers. God only knows what she got up to with some guys while you were away. Yes, I am that judgmental.”
Jennifer Edmond suggested, “If she doesn't want to live there, drag her into the house. She should be remorseful, but the stubbornness still lingers in her mind.”
Chioma Ethel Ugwuja wondered: “What on earth did someone use 10 million for without any proper explanation?”
Anita Chidera Harddõllãr said: 'I can't really support you because I haven't heard her side of the story. Her spending 10 million like that is kind of out of context, but when you married her you should have known that she is a spendthrift and how to handle her spending habits. I cannot judge or support you until her side of the story is heard.”
