A mathematics teacher in a secondary school in Ekwulobia, Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State, Chiadikobi Ezeibekwe, has married his 16-year-old biological sister.
He claimed that God told him to do so.
He further quoted 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.”
The teacher said he did not pay any bride price to anybody in respect of the marriage.
“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.
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.”
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.”
The Anambra State Police Public Relations Officer, Nkeiruka Nwide, told the newspaper that she heard the story “unofficially.”
