Nigerian Activist Shares An Update On The 15-year Old Girl Married Off To A 66-Y by UNIZIKMATA(m): 2:07pm On Feb 05, 2019
Few days back, a Human Right Activist, Prince Harrison Gwamnishu shared a story of a 15-year old pregnant girl simply identified as Ebube, who was forced into marriage with a 66-year-old man.

Now he's back with an update on the efforts his team has made so far in saving the young girl from the forced marriage.

Prince Harrison Gwamnishu shared photos of Ebube on his Facebook page and wrote:

#RetrieveEbube
14YEARS PREGNANT GIRL FORCED INTO CHILD MARRIAGE WITH 66YEARS OLD MAN IN NNEWI, ANAMBRA STATE.

This evening, we rounded up our investigation in Nnewi, Anambra State.

Ebube was 14yrs, staying with her aunty when she got pregnant and was chased away. Her parents rejected her. The street became her shelter. Her family heard about a 65yrs old man (Now 66yrs) who was looking for a wife and Ebube was remembered.

Ebube was married out to the man with her pregnancy.

She was happy when she heard she's leaving the marriage for school #PenNotPenis

Early marriage is a huge violation of human rights. #RespectHumanRights

The 21st century is the age when every person, regardless of age, gender and social status, can do anything and follow their dreams with full support from their family. Sadly, many young girls do not have a voice in the matter.

They are raised to believe that they are made for serving their husbands, without a chance to get proper education and profession, when in reality women can be powerful and inspirational, and achieve great things.

Child Marriage is not a northern thing as we are made to believe #EndChildMarriage

THE GOODNEWS IS, SHE'S NOT SPENDING THIS WEEKEND IN NNEWI. #RetrieveEbube. We are paying everything paid to free her from Modern day slavery #SexSlave

Why are u all doing as if sex slave, baby factory and child marriage are new in Igboland?
Even d boys are smuggled to Lagos inside ugwu truck to come sell fake cd, gala and expired Fanta.

And again, why covering her face?
