A man in Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State, Chiadikobi Ezeibekwe, has married his 17-year-old sister, claiming that God told him to do so.

Ezeibekwe who is a mathematic teacher in a secondary school said he had a revelation where God told him to marry his sibling.

The teacher 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.”

It was gathered that the wedding was conducted by Chiadikobi’s elder brother, Chijioke Ezeibekwe, who is the  priest of Dwelling Fullness of God Church, Agba.

The youth of the village had set ablaze the church, Dwelling Fullness of God Church, where the wedding was conducted.

Ezeibekwe 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.

The Anambra State Police Public Relations Officer, Nkeiruka Nwide, said she heard the story “unofficially.”

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.
