“HOW FAMILY MEMBERS FORCED 15 YEARS PREGNANT GIRL INTO CHILD MARRIAGE WITH 66YEARS OLD MAN IN NNEWI.
This evening, we arrived Nnewi, Anambra State. We met the victim (EBUBE) and assured her of our support and safety.
She was 14, staying with her aunty when she got pregnant and was chased away. Her parents rejected her. The street became her shelter. Her family heard about a 65yrs old man (Now 66yrs) who was looking for a wife and Ebube was remembered.
#FastForward: The man has two wives, married Ebube with her pregnancy. His two wives left him and today 16yrs Ebube is a full time house wife to 66yrs old man in Nnewi.
“I stopped at JSS3, I have wanted to go but nowhere to go. If I have a shelter elsewhere, I will leave this marriage”.
Barr. Ajuebor Favour will be working on all legal processes and we will be meet her parents tomorrow.
