Wife Jailed After Her Husband Borrowed Money and Escape


A 40-year old housewife, Shola Afolayan, has been sent to Kirikiri Prisons in Lagos over her husband’s loan. The mother of five kids stood as guarantor for her husband who borrowed N1.5 million from Mrs Chioma Ohaegbu to set up a business and promised to pay at a fixed date.

But according to Shola, immediately her husband collected the loan, he abandoned her and their children and fled with the money. The man is very stupid, to say the least.



Narrating what happened, Chioma said Mr. Afolayan came to her house at 12, Oludegun Street, Ire Akari Estate, Isolo in Lagos and solicited for financial assistance. 
Chioma said before she gave him the money, Afolayan took her to his house at Isheri-Oshun in Lagos and introduced her to his wife and children, assuring her that he would not disappoint her if given the loan. 
Then, the [stupid] husband asked his wife to sign as his guarantor that he would pay the loan at a fixed date, and out of love the wife signed for him...
Chioma said when Afolayan did not pay back the loan as promised, she contacted his wife who told her that he had escaped with the money and all efforts to trace him had failed.

She reported the case to the police and Shola was arrested and charged with conspiracy and stealing under the Criminal Code before Ejigbo Magistrate’s Court sitting in Lagos.

When she was arraigned in court, Shola told the court that her husband refused to show up and when she even contacted him on phone, he asked her and the children to sort themselves out with his creditor and switched off the phone.

The unfortunate this now is that the presiding Magistrate, M.B. Folami granted Shola bail in the sum of N1m, a woman who can't feed her children. She has been remanded in prison custody since she cant pay N1m.

The matter has been adjourned till 26 May, 2014, for trial.
