Man Weds 17-Year-Old Blood Sister In Anambra Church- And Here’s What’s Happened So Far
A mathematics teacher in a secondary school in Ekwulobia, Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State, Chiadikobi Ezeibekwe (pictured), has married his 17-year-old biological sister, according to Punch.
Ezeibekwe claimed that God told him to do so and that he had a revelation where God told him to marry his sibling.
Quoting Bible passages in Deuteronomy to illustrate that siblings could marry each other, he said, “One advantage of doing this is that it discourages divorce. It also retains family values and norms.”
Ezeibekwe said he did not pay any bride price to anybody to marry his sister. Listen to him: “I don’t feel guilty. I don’t feel ashamed. I don’t feel intimidated in any way. Only God can stop us,” he said.
In an interview with Punch, the traditional prime minister of Ekwulobia, Gabriel Ezeukwu, said, “Agba village youths, who saw the marriage as an abomination, set ablaze the church where the wedding took place.
“I restrained them from further action against the man and his family. If it were in the past, the entire family would be burnt down because this is a grave abomination and sin.”
The eldest son of the family, Emeka Ezeibekwe, vowed to resist their union.
He said, “It’s over my dead body that they will call themselves husband and wife. It can’t happen.”
