Dear LIB readers: How do I recover my money from a debtor whose brother I’m engaged to?

From a female LIB reader

My fiance’s brother is owing me N370,000. I borrowed him the money since November last year and up till now he hasn’t paid me back and has stopped picking my calls. If he wasn’t related to my man, I would called the police because this is tantamount to fraud, but I don’t want to do something that would make my fiance call off our engagement. He knows his brother is owing me but told me to give him some time, but I don’t think that man wants to give me back that money o. He’s no longer responding to my pleas to return my money. How do I get it back without jeopardizing my relationship?

Domestic violence: See what a Lagos driver did to his baby mama (photos)

Here’s what happened according to actress, Tana Adelana who shared the story on instagram. Her story below.
“This is what I saw this morning.. Sigh* when will people learn that domestic violence doesn’t stop a thing?! That’s the man walking away from the camera, he knocked out two teeth from his baby mama because she refused to allow him see the child he supposedly can’t/doesn’t feed. He is a driver named Dominic Akpan popularly called Archibong and she is Cecilia Etim (a domestic worker), both live in Ajah. I don’t care what she did and trust me man, no one will ever pay attention to you again, not after what you have done to this girl! I will follow this matter up. His boss took her away, I’m guessing to the police station and then to a dentist/hospital as the driver is on the run.”

Microgynon Fe is now available in local pharmacies at a significantly lower price after it’s recent launch in Sheraton Hotels Abuja.
