A mathematics teacher in a secondary school in Ekwulobia, Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State, Chiadikobi Ezeibekwe, has gotten married to his 16-year-old biological sister.
He claims God asked him to do so.
Ezeibekwe told Punch that he had a revelation where God told him to marry his sibling.
And he also quoted some bible verses in Deuteronomy where it was written that siblings could get married
He said, “One advantage of doing this is that it discourages divorce. It also retains family values and any form of diseases”
The teacher said he did not pay any bride price to anybody in respect to the marriage.
He also said, “I don’t feel ashamed. Only God can stop us.
According to Punch, the wedding was conducted by Chiadikobi’s elder brother, Chijioke Ezeibekwe, who is the priest of Dwelling Fullness of God Church, Agba, Ekwulobia.
However, the youth of the village had set ablaze the church, Dwelling Fullness of God Church, where the wedding was conducted.
Reacting to the issue, 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.”
