Help me solve my ignorance, I must have been too deep designing websites and doing other stuff that I am almost unaware of the latest happenings in Nigeria, my country. I have been following the whole underage marriage saga very keenly but popular American blogger, Sandra Rose seems to know better than I do, about my country.
She posted a photo of this couple and said Senator Yerima was the one in the photo with his child bride. Did the senator look like this several years ago?
In a report she captions “New Nigeria Law Says Men Can Marry Baby Girls” she writes:
The last few years have tested the longstanding history of traditional marriage. Homosexuals are winning the right to marry in some parts of the world, and a new amendment to Nigeria’s Constitution states that grown men can marry underage girls, even infants.
Pictured above is Nigerian Senator Yerima posing with his child bride, left, and holding his baby bride.
The way stories are interpreted out of Africa is amazing.
