The virgin ceremony also called Iria ceremony is a tradition, which every girl from the community must go through before being given out in marriage. The girls are usually critically screened by the elders, in the community before being allowed to participate in the ceremony.

Its a traditional ceremony at ogu/bolo plus other parts of Nigeria too. It signifies maturity into womanhood and let's the community know when a girl is ripe for marriage. Very few partake in it these days.
My wife is from there and did hers long ago.
Most traditional ceremonies in our country is dying because of yeye statements I read above.

Not all traditional ceremonies are BAD!
