It was eventful day on Saturday, November 1, as the yearly ancient Iria festival was held in Okrika, Rivers State. About nineteen virgins were given certificates by the community elders which grants the ladies freedom to bring home their suitors for marriage. 

As other tribes in Nigeria have their annual festivals, people of Okrika have their annual initiation ceremony of virgins into womanhood which is held at the final quarter of the year.

The ceremony is aimed at welcoming young virgins who just clocked 18 years old and above into womanhood.

The traditional ceremony Is called”Iria” in Okrika.

This ceremony is said to be an ancient ceremony and also sacred as it Is only done by virgins in the ancient days.

This is a beautiful and enviable rare achievement these days which is sure worth lauding and celebrating.

But they need to quit exposing these angels almost going out of extinction and grant them a special protection status against the reprobate lazy ass ritualists funkifiedly referred to as "Yahoo plus boys".

Don’t judge others with your own experience.

The fact that you lost yours doesn’t mean that other girls are like you. There are still other people who treasure and hold onto their virginity. It’s to be celebrated.

Because you couldn't celebrate yours doesn't mean others don't have what to celebrate.

Where are the “male virgins” like “HUMBLESMITH” before he visited “Lagos”?
Promoting celebration of virginity should not be sexist!
