    A different story if the man in question is normal, and poverty on its own is a big disease..

    This is pure wickedness , the man in question was even wondering what was going on around him because he is not normal. God punish all those involved in this.

    Seeing this alone without reading the story, i was weeping within me, what is Africa turning to for crying out loud, thanks to Chibuzor ikeh, the whole village most especially her in-laws will definitely turn this little girl to their sex slave. Pls share till it get to the appropriate authority to penalise both parent and all those involve in this child’s abuse and child marriage.

    Highest order of wickedness. May God punish the parents of both the bride and the groom for this sham. The girl should be in school. Poverty or no poverty, this girl’s parents should not have consented to this nonsense.

    So why was he holding the girl tight as if she would run away from him?
    This is not marriage but mirage.

    I am just wondering why you guys didnt blame it on christian religion?. If this happens in northern nigeria, you could care less whether those involved are not muslims. You quickly put the blame on islam and islamic prophet.

    Hypocrisy stinks, i swear

      @Amanda your point is noted but there is a difference. No Christian Reverend Father or Pastor will agree to wed this two. The age of consent for girls is 18 in Nigeria (if I am not mistaking) for Christians. This girl is only 16 years of age and that is why people are frowning at it. If it were to be Islam nobody would say a word because it is the norm. That is why in Islamic religion you see a girl of 9 years betrothed to a 60 year old man with 3 wives or more. Correct me if I am wrong but please no insult.

    There is nothing like abuse in this case, the girl is happy. I believe she’s in support of the marriage.

    The man cant wait to devour that girl with the way he is holding her. Looks like an Igbo version of beauty and the beast. This crap should be disallowed in all its entirety. Something is not adding up

    Money answers all things, but the love of money is the root of all evil. I work with people with Developmental disabilities, they are most times better than the people with all abilities. There is no crime committed here. I will do it for my family member if need be. would you have preferred her to be married to the likes of Evans the Kidnapper etc.??
    The only worry I have here is, the normal people around this couple should not end up raping the girl in the name of helping their brother to procreate. I can belt anything that this girl will be raped. This is very common in this part of the country.
