Pity in place of love is a true life story of Victoria who came from a very poor background. Her father died when she was just ten years old and her three older brothers were mere secondary school graduates. Victoria’s older brothers had no hope of furthering their education due to lack of money, until one faithful day when a rich business man came to their house, asking Victoria’s hand in marriage.
Peter, as he was called invested a lot on Victoria and her family. He took her three older brothers to the university, opened a small provision store for their mother, and for Victoria he sponsored her to University of Nigeria where she met a lecturer who fell in love with her. The lecturer made a lot of sacrifices for Victoria while in school. He made sure she lacked nothing.
Victoria knew she can’t love any other man aside Peter, the
business man who made her family what they are. She tried everything possible
to make the lecturer understand her position, but he insisted either she marry
him or will kill himself. Victoria became so worried knowing fully well that the
lecturer is a man of his word. She had pity on him and abandoned Peter the
businessman then married the lecturer.
