An Indian man has cried out after his Nigerian lover turned him into a punching bag after draining all his money.
This much he narrated to the police detectives attached to the Domestic Violence Unit of the Festac Police Station of the Lagos State Command where he had gone to report a case of violence against his person.
The Indian lover boy who was weeping bitterly while answering questions from the police operatives, according to witnesses, had a plastered elbow, blackened right eye and was visibly limping, all testimony to what he said he has been going through in the hands of his lover, including sending a commercial motorcyclist to hit him.
Jagan who said he had already done the traditional marriage introduction with Sandra and the proper wedding fixed to this year, reported her to the police on February 27, 2016, for battery and threat to life.
Though the police promised to charge the case to court, Jagan said he was not interested in going to court as he was leaving Nigeria back to his country for good.
“I now understand everything. Sandra has gotten all she wants from me. I’m broke. She doesn’t want me anymore, ” Jagan lamented.
The hurt Indian man said he met Sandra at the Trade Fair International Market where she is a trader and they started dating, while he was working with an Indian company back then.
Soon after, the lovers started discussing marriage and according to him, he rented an apartment for her and handed over his Automatic Teller Machine (ATM), card to her, as proof of his love.
One day, he received a letter from his company transferring him to Kano State but due to fears of the Boko Haram, Sandra discouraged him from moving to the northern state.
“I refused the transfer because I wanted to be with her. I resigned and started my own business. I rented a bedroom apartment for her. I travelled to Indian and came back. I had nobody, but her. But she goes out and returns late at night.
She was endangering my life. I don’t want to say about what I suspected she was doing. But when I got information that she was in a hotel, I went there to confirm things for myself. And I saw her. I went to the hotel to confirm what I had been hearing. It was true.
I slapped her neck. My finger injured her. I didn’t try to strangle her. She was toying with my life. Today, I regret leaving my company because of her.”
After Jagan returned from Indian, he moved in with Sandra. It was while living with her that he discovered she was a lady of the night and he did not like it and tried to stop her from that lifestyle.
When Jagan got to that part of the story, he started weeping again. Sandra, who glanced at him with scorn, said that when Jagan came into the hotel room, he sat by her bed, knelt down by her side and started crying.
The remorseless Sandra took over the story, accusing Jagan of being too jealous and possessive.
“He said I should be like Indian women. But I don’t want to be like Indian women. He wants me to be covering myself, I can’t. Whenever I speak with anybody, he gets angry. I can’t live that way!”
The apartment they lived was rented in Sandra’s name and during one of their fights, Sandra allegedly threw Jagan's things out and he moved into a hotel and since he could no longer concentrate on his business, it started to crumble. Just when Jagan was getting his life straightened out, he received a cry for help text message from Sandra.
“Sandra said she was sick. She said if she didn’t see me, she would die. I ran to see her.”
But that reunion did not last as the lovers started fighting again, with Sandra accusing Jagan of stealing her Ipad.
"A few days later, I went to the same hotel to have a drink when Sandra ran out, armed with bottle and attacked me. She tore my clothes. She held and started dragging me. She wanted to kill me. I called the police. I later noticed a guy following me.
I don’t have anybody in Nigeria. If I die here, I’ll die for nothing. The guy caused my accident. He used a motorbike to knock into the one I hired. I and my motorbike rider fell. I almost died.
She only wanted my money and now that she has drained me, she says she does not want me again.”
But Sandra, on her part, said as far as she is concerned, the relationship is dead.
“He called police for me because I told him that I didn’t want the relationship anymore. When I told him it was over, Jagan traced me to the hotel where I had gone to lodge. He came into the hotel, sat on the bed and started crying.
He grabbed my neck and tried to strangle me. I struggled with him. He wanted to kill me. I screamed. People came to save me. We’re supposed to go for court wedding, but I don’t want him anymore. We started dating a year ago. He’s too jealous. He said I shouldn’t speak with anyone, including women."
