This man thought he’d right his wrongs by returning the 10K he stole from his girlfriend. But now that he’s a millionaire, she wants him to give her millions, too!
Can’t Resist the Temptation
According to a story shared on YouTube, in 2021, a Nigerian man stole 10,000 Nigerian Naira (₦) from his girlfriend after leaving the money on his shelf when she visited him. They’d been together for a long time, but it didn’t stop him from betraying her trust.
So, when she stepped out to go to the salon, the man thought of it as the perfect opportunity.
Stealing the Money
He immediately took the ₦10,000 and used it as capital for a bet. The bet lasted for two days!
When his girlfriend found out about it, he promised her that he “would win back her stolen money and return it to her.”
Lo and behold, the Nigerian man didn’t just win the bet or get back his capital. He won ₦100,000,000!
He excitedly shared this with his girlfriend. However, instead of solving their problems, it seems everything got worse!
Giving Back What He Owed
The man returned the ₦10,000 he stole from his girlfriend. But since he won ₦100,000,000, his girlfriend wanted more.
She was furious that her boyfriend stole and used her money in a bet. So, she said she deserved at least ₦40,000,000!
He immediately refused and told her he wanted to use most of the money to start and grow his business.
This started a never-ending argument, and after many back and forths, the man told his girlfriend he’d give her ₦5,000,000.
However, ₦5,000,000 was not enough for the woman. She forced an ultimatum on him: either give her the ₦40,000,000, or they break up!
The man didn’t know what to do.
He wanted to be in a relationship with his girlfriend. However, at the same time, he wants to keep the majority of the money to himself.
The online community was torn between left and right.
On the one hand, people think he should give his girlfriend what she’s asking for. On the flip side, many users believed he should only give back the ₦10,000, as he previously promised.
She Deserves More!
Those on his girlfriend’s side said it could be a way for him to apologize for stealing her money.
One said, “If she had lent it to him, I would say he only owes her ₦10,000 back. However, he stole it. So, he should give her more as an apology,” Another said, “Honestly, he probably should have been charged with theft, but since that is not going to happen, he should give her more than he took.”
Look At It as a Gift
One user also suggested that OP give his girlfriend more and consider it a gift.
This person said, “He won ₦100,000,000. He could’ve, at the very least, gifted her with 1 to 10 million! If it weren’t for her, he wouldn’t have that ₦100,000,000!”
That’s Not Fair
For the other half of the community, it was only right for the man to return the exact amount he had taken.
One said, “He is right, though. He only owes her what he took.”
Not That Important
People also noted that the ₦10,000 didn’t seem that important to his girlfriend.
One user wrote, “He gave her back what he said. If she was that concerned, she should have immediately gone to the authorities. She agreed that he was going to pay her back the ₦10,000. What’s the problem?”
You Don’t Deserve a Partner Like This
However, others didn’t want to take part in the discussion of money. The most important thing for them is that the man’s girlfriend gets out of this relationship as soon as possible.
One said, “This man is so cold. If he stole once, he’ll do it again.” Another user wrote, “At the end of the day, he stole from her. Why does she want him under that scenario? Low self-esteem and toxic. She should sue and move on.”
It’s Just Greed
For other YouTubers, it’s simply a matter of morals and integrity.
A YouTuber said, “From the comments, I see how integrity is a thing of the past.” A man from Nigeria agreed and said, “Sad to say, but the level of greed in Nigeria is unparalleled! And I’m Nigerian!”
What do you think? What would you do if you were the man’s girlfriend?
