A young Ghanaian entrepreneur identified only as Otu has reportedly sued his ex-lover, Mercy Agyei, after she refused to marry him after years of financing her education.

He claims he provided financial assistance throughout their six-year relationship, supporting Mercy's education, starting a business for her mother, and handling different financial commitments before she got a job at a bank in Ghana.
