He made fool of me, He thought i will die – Man drags son to court after giving him N50m for family business


** A Nigerian man has dragged his son, named Chijoke to court after giving him N50m to start a family business but instead he could not give account for it.

The father-son case was dragged to Justice court, a Nigerian Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) reality court program aired on TV for the settlement of small civil disputes and is presided over by Funmilayo Asaolu.

In a video surfacing online, the judge lamented about people not appreciating what they have until it is lost and said to Chijioke that his father is in a pitiable state but is not asking for everything.

In the clip, the man said in disappointment, “Out of N50 million, let him give me N20 million first. He is not worthy of the trust a father should have on his son.”

“I gave him a cheque of N50m, he went and grabbed the money. Let him return the N50m, what is he doing with the money”.

The distraught man went ahead to say that his son made fool of him and does not want him to run the business again.

“Has he made N1m? Has he made N100k himself? I don’t trust him. He is not worthy of any trust. I don’t want you to run the company anymore. Give me my money and instrument of management. Go away and start your own business.”

He berated Chijikoe for hoping that he would die and revealed that approaching court became necessary as the young man had avoided honoring calls from their elders over the matter.

Internet users shared their thoughts as they took to the comment section. Some reactions are shown below:
