We reported that a 65 old allegedly demented man from the wealthy Igwilo family in Ozubulu community in Anambra state traditionally got married to a 16 years old girl.
The traditional wedding was held over the past weekend was attended by family, friends and associate.

Now, More facts have emerged about the 16-year-old girl set to be married off to the man who is now identified as Izuchukwu Igwilo.
In an interview with LIB, Activist, Prince Harrison Gwamnishu, who visited Anambra state after the story went viral, said the said girl is from Ihiala community and is actually 15 years old and not 16 years as reported in the news.
According to Harrison, the girl is from a very poor family and that she had a child when she was in primary 5 and had to quit school. Her family couldn’t continue sponsoring her education and also taking care of her child so they decided that they were going to marry her off to Izuchukwu who came recently with his family members to ask for her hand in marriage.
The family state that they believe no one would come for the little girl’s hand in marriage since she has a child.
Harrison says the Igwilos really want Izuchukwu to get married and also have children of his own, hence they have accepted to have the girl come into their family with her own child. Izuchukwu’s brothers, who are said to be wealthy, have pledged to sponsor the girl’s child and any children she and their brother will have together.
The traditional wedding of Izuchukwu and the teen girl is slated for Easter this year and, according to Harrison, a lot of money running into millions of Naira has been budgeted for the ceremony.
