Woman allegedly gets duped by her to-be husband after he did not show up for their wedding.
A man has been exposed as a romance scammer after he tricked a widow, promised her marriage, duped her, made her spend her money on wedding plans, then kept on calling on the wedding morning that he was on his way but never showed up.
There are a lot of scam stories going around on social media but this has topped the charts. Recently, a woman shared a post on a young widow who was scammed by her lover, Promise Ejiroghene, a supposed Naval officer, who promised to marry her. She spent approximately 2 million Niara on him during their one year courtship and on the day of the traditional wedding, he disappeared.

On Friday 18th May 2019 I was called by my aunt to come tie Gele for one of her church members whom I know for her wedding, since I was in Ado Ekiti and wasn’t busy I agreed. On getting there at about 8pm on Friday, “bride” told us that her “bridegroom” is not yet around because he was stuck in PH, we started panicking.
This lady is a young widow with a 6 years old daughter, she met this guy in Ado Ekiti where she lives, they started dating, he told her he is a Naval officer (just like her late husband) and lives in Abuja that his parents lives in Portharcourt, they started dating and she has been the one spending on him.
Three months ago They started planning their wedding after dating for a year and just as the planning begun the groom who gave his name as Olamide Roland John told his fiancée that his younger brother is sick and has been hospitalized, the plan was going, introduction was supposed to be during this period but because of the brother’s sickness his mother called to cancel it and they plan to do both during the wedding proper.
5 days to the wedding the “brother” died, she advised that they postpone the wedding but He insisted that the date will hold, he told her he has been called to come bury his brother in Portharcourt he left Ado Ekiti where he was with the lady. On Thursday he claimed he got to PH and got to Bonny on Friday morning he promised he was going to fly back to Akure on Friday evening and make it to Ekiti in the morning.
Friday evening the “mother called her and was cursing her on phone claiming she didn’t want her son to pay last respect to his brother and calling him to come wed, she kept her calm and called the guy in which he assured her that he will make it even if it means coming alone. This guy started calling my aunt since that evening till the wedding morning which was Saturday assuring that he will make it, till about 9 am he was still calling and we kept waiting for him, at about 9:45 am he said h got to PH from Bonny but he has missed his flight and doesn’t have money on him to reschedule, thankfully we didn’t send it any money but he claimed his colleagues will send him money.
During the courtship this guy collected approximately 2million Naira from her excluding the money she spent on the wedding. That morning everything has been set from jollof to cake to hall decorations and even items on the bride price list which she got herself and he promised to refund. This guy got a truck to come pack the lady’s belongings from her house to Abuja but my aunt told him not to bother that she will give them a truck to pack it but thankfully the driver of that truck couldn’t make it that day so they plan to move it after the wedding, thank God! If not he would have gone with all her house hold items (chairs, AC freezer, kitchen items etc) too
He made her quit her job earlier this month since she will be relocating cos of marriage so presently she has zero kobo and no job
I have recordings of conversations they had on Saturday morning still assuring her he will make it.
His fb name is Blossom Ejiroghene
2088934442 EJIROGHENE PROMISE,UBA. Is one of the accounts he used to collect money from her, if anyone knows his whereabouts and how he can be arrested to refund the money at least.
From findings I got to know he is married and the wife is probably in the scam
