A grandfather has married a young innocent girl who can be described as pre-teenager and this has incurred the wrath of netizens.
This was as a result of a marriage calendar which was shared on social media which gave an account of a marriage ceremony which took place between the two on January 22, 2021.
Mallam Sani who looks old and grey has decided to force marriage on Malama Jemila Sada who looks very innocent and more ready for school than married life.
Chinyere Nwonye who shared this photo wrote: When I posted the photo, I honestly was blank. I didn’t have a caption, because I was filled with so much anger and disgust. Just look at that little child’s reality. We have to do better. We have to. It can’t continue like this. Sigh.

Below are some of the reactions from netizens who believe this should not be condoned and left to fester in a 21st Century world.
This is not something to celebrate.
This so-called custom is just an excuse for men who are pedophiles. It is a shame for those who are victims of this rubbish and those who practice it. This is child abuse.#pedophelia #childmarriage #childabuse
