Youths set Church ablaze in Anambra after Man says God told him to Marry his Sister - BellaNaija

Youth of Aguata Local Government Area in Anambra State have burned to the ground a church after a teacher married his 17-year-old sister, Punch reports.

Chiadikobi Ezeibekwe had married his sister at the Dwelling Fullness of God Church in Agba, Anambra State.

Ezeibekwe had reportedly said he was instructed by God to do so, quoting from the bible to support his claim, saying: “One advantage of doing this is that it discourages divorce. It also retains family values and norms.”

“I don’t feel guilty. I don’t feel ashamed. I don’t feel intimidated in any way. Only God can stop us,” he continued.

The two had reportedly been married by their elder brother Chijioke Ezeibekwe who is said to be a priest at the church.

Another brother of theirs, Emeka Ezeibekwe, the eldest of the family, kicked against the wedding, saying: “It’s over my dead body that they will call themselves husband and wife. It can’t happen.”

    The way I see it..if you are so liberal that you support gays and lesbian marriages but you do not support this..you are a damn hypocrite… after all , they are consenting adults and they are in love^2 and love conquers all and they should have the right to marry whoever they want….remember that

    As I said before.if you are so liberal that you support gays and lesbian marriages but you do not support this..you are a damn hypocrite… so gays and lesbians like bobrisky and cizi eze should rally behind one of their enlightened and open -minded colleague. He even quoted the bible to justify it , Just like cisi did in her latest article with Jesus preaching about” judge not” in support of her community. Good luck to them and happy married life. Remember, you stone -age and backward hypocritical Nigerians should Judge not!!!!
