Less than 48 hours to the International Women’s Day, March 8, a certain Facebook user, Alfa Bolondes, posted the pictures of a marriage ceremony between a man, he claims to be his cousin and an underage girl.
The pictures by Alfa Bolondes (who has since taken down his account) caused quite a stir, with many online users not believing child marriage still get organised in this day and age.
Alfa went on to defend the action when someone pointed out that the bride was too young.
When asked who organised the marriage, he said “Na her family na”. He added that she’s “happy” after someone pointed out that she doesn’t look happy.
