The 25-year-old who decided to marry his 17-year-old as claimed to have received the vision from God, has renounced the marriage.
The people of Agba village Ekwulobia in Aguata Local Government of Anambra State were thrown into shock when two blood relatives born of the same parents decided to marry each other. Chiadikobi, 25 and his 17-year-old sister both claimed that they received the vision from God.
However, he has come out to renounce the union. Speaking with Sunday Sun at the Community Secondary School Isuofia in the local government declared that the marriage was no more.
This is coming after Ekwulobia community and the Parish Priest of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Ekwulobia, Rev. Fr. Igunatus Onwuatuegwu have fixed March 24, for the formal dissolution of the marriage and cleansing of the land according to the church tradition.
The unlawful union had cause an uproar in the village as the Chiadi, as he is popularly called, stood by his guns believing that marrying his sister was God’s intention.
“We didn’t just jump into this marriage thing because we can do it, God showed it to me and not only me, it was shown to other people in this family. God asked me to marry my sister yes, and I didn’t propose to my sister. Sometimes you may have vision, you just keep it, and in the process she got the same vision and spoke out because if she had not had the vision, I would not have been able to speak about it.
I have tried to feel ashamed, guilty or sober since this thing happened, but no way. I feel fine and at home. I have asked God to make me feel bad and guilty if I have done evil, but I am not feeling any of such,” he had earlier said.
