16-year-old girl identified as Nihat who was gifted a Benz and iPhone by her boyfriend also identified as Zubairu is suspected of stealing and reportedly beaten by parents.
It was earlier reported that an 100 level student gifted his girlfriend, an SS 3 student named Nihat, a Mercedez Benz, an iWatch and iPhone on her 16th birthday. The whole event and gifts which went viral on social media immediately created a buzz. Many Nigerians could not help but react to this incident (read and watch video here)
While a lot of Nigerians deemed the gifts as very wrong due to the age of the couple, others pointed accusing fingers at the parents of the girl for letting their daughter collect the gifts supposedly meant to celebrate her 16th birthday.
More so, the 19-year-old boyfriend whose name was Zubairu was berated as many were unsure of the source of the money used in getting the presents for his girlfriend. A lot of people maintained that his wealth did not come through a legitimate means.
While it appeared that the issue might have been forgotten by many people over the course of the week, it has been gathered from social media that the issue has been revived. This time, Nigerians are claiming that the parents of the girl have taken action by mercilessly beating their daughter for receiving gifts of such nature.
Not only that, many have also claimed that the boy who lavished such gifts on his girlfriend had actually stolen the money used in obtaining them.
Apparently, this discovery was made by someone who knew the duo very well. While the rumour started on Snapchat, it spread all the way to Twitter where it picked up pace and became a full-fledged conversation.
A Nigerian named @Nabeelah_Abdull on Twitter started the conversation with certain tweets. Then, other interested people went on to continue the “Benz” discussion where they had stopped.
