A Nigerian man is currently under fire for congratulating on Facebook his cousin who just married a little girl between the age of 7 and 10 years old.
The man who was called out however defended the tradition, disclosing that the marriage was organized by the little girl’s parents. He also claimed the little girl is happy with the marriage. The shared photos has long sparked an outrage online, as Nigerians condemned the tradition. This forced Alfa Bolondes to take the post down…but not before we got pictures ad screenshots. See below:
The poor girl looks miserable and should still be in school. So heartbreaking this barbaric practice of marrying off little girls. #ChildNotBride.
