    Well lucky her it just a week before her wedding day not her been in prison on that day. I wish there was a reason, but for her to commit such act, Anthony must ve stepped his boundaries. I’m not justifying that slapping someone is right either.. Congratulations on your wedding Olawunmi.

    1. A lady slapped a man? Shows she is unruly and not a wife material
    2. Asked to apologize and she refused? shows she is saucy and arrogant
    3. What will a simple apology take out of her?
    4. Upon all her gra gra, she no get someone to bring 20k come court or surety to stand for her? One would think her father owns Lagos state that is why she has d audacity to slap a man
    5. Thank God the Anthony didnt woze you back. If he had wozed you back, you for spend your wedding day in the hospital counting the ceiling

    Groom to be, what are you waiting for, better run for your life. This is how she will behave when you both are married. Thank God for you- He has shown you these b4 the marriage and averted evil for you.

    Bride to be, why weeping? do your wedding in the prison with inmates o jare

    All ya saucy ladies out there, take note!

      i don’t understand why she is all these things for slapping a ‘MAN”… Nobody has a right to be violent, period! It has nothing to do with gender,

      You must be an ignoramus!!!!!!!!!! What do you mean by a lady slaps a man? Do you know what the man did to warrant the slap? In a world where Gender Equality is the order of the day, I can’t believe you are saying all these. Sounding like a moron!!!! Sometimes I detest Nigerian men. It is only in Nigeria you will be at the airport climbing tons of stairs, struggling with your hand luggage and a man who has got no load will walk past you uncaring!!! And one week in Prison for slapping a man???? Awesome!!! Shows how much of a backward country Nigeria is!!!!!

    So basically what ppl get out of this is that she dares to slap a man and how will she act in her husband house abi? Surely there is more to a woman’s life than her marital life. She operates in a work environment, religious organisation, friends, public transport system etc. I bet she will be in contact with more people there than with her husband and her family.

    Does anyone care to know why? Why a lady will slap a guy…and still refuse to apologise? Think people before casting stones!

    Last minute nerves or self sabotage?

    She has no control over her anger so anger controlled her one week to her wedding. Wasting money and time cooling off in prison.

    Do men get remanded in prison for slapping women? Or is this just about her daring to slap a man?!

    Why cry because its a week to your wedding when you can simply post bail and go ahead with the wedding. you only postpone the honeymoon and commencement of the marriage. Kpomkwem.

      Lol. You are very correct. It’s always the first person that gets to the police station that is right

    The man must have done something painful to her. She should have use wisdom to say sorry and goes her way, knowingly that the first person to lay complaint and give bribe in station always have their ways. A lesson for her but law of karma will surely apply.
