This is really shocking! A secondary school teacher, Chiadikobi Ezeibekwe, has wedded his 17-year-old sister in Ekwulobia, Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State.
Ezeibekwe claimed that his action was based on God’s instruction as he had a revelation where God told him to marry his sibling backing up his claims with Bible verses, especially from Deuteronomy.
He said; “One advantage of doing this is that it discourages divorce. It also retains family values and norms. I don’t feel guilty. I don’t feel ashamed. I don’t feel intimidated in any way. Only God can stop us,”.
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 who were furious about the incident burnt down the church, Dwelling Fullness of God Church, where the wedding took place.
The traditional ruler of Ekwulobia, Chief Gabriel Ezeukwu, who confirmed the incident 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.”
However, the eldest son of the family, Emeka Ezeibekwe, said he would never allow the strange couple to live as husband and wife.
