On 30th of January, 2019, news broke about a 15-year-old girl identified as Chinwe who was forcefully married off to a mentally challenged man in Ozubulu community, Anambra State.

There was a public outcry which attracted the attention of the authorities after the report of the marriage between 15 years old Chinwe and a 56-year-old Izuchukwu Igwilo of the popular and wealthy Igwilo family of Anambra State emerged.

Following the public outcry, the state Commissioner For Women and Children affairs, Lady Ndidi Mezue, intervened and Chiukwendu was retrieved form the Igwilos. She was rehabilitated, trained in tailoring and empowered with other 100 Ndi Anambra by Industrial Training Fund, ITF.

      Nice one but Harrison Gwamnishu Emefiela played a vital role in retrieving the girl from the said man. His name was not even mentioned

    Good news, l think they ve done wonderfully well. those talking about ethnicity, I tell you that if this could have been in the North, by now it is a forgotten issue. Who cares about her if it were in the North. After all it is allowed there. Just imaging the degree of the follow up. it is awesome.

    I wonder why our northern brothers are upset, how can you even compare ocean with a pool? In the history of this Nation it is quite obvious that child marriage is embedded in the north.

    Good one.What of the pregnancy? Because we were told she was pregnant before she was willingly given out for marriage by the father. Or,am I mistaking it with another incident?

    Yes its from the east but you saw the response both from the public and government of Anambra state. You also saw the follow up from the state government.

    Things happen every day everywhere but the response of the people defines who they are.
    Lets not follow the elite blindly. The northan elite have not been fair to its people, allowing them to wallow in illitracy, ignorance and poverty.
    This is not a time for ethnicity and other irrelevant comments on social media. This is not a time for blind support. Lets ask the right questions to the right people.

      Mr.Hanna good talk.I dont really know where u are from but I guess it must be from the north or west. because that name should be a Muslim name. if u are from the north I must say am impress with honesty of ur comment, not every body from the north can really be this brave to spit it out. one luv man.

      So you agree this is child abuse? Now we are getting somewhere! There is nothing to imagine when it comes to the north, it is the culture and practice. Therefore, if you truly believe it is child abuse please launch a crusade to stop it taking example from what happened in Anambra
