I thought someone posted a story sometime ago that Osu system had finally been abolished, how come your family is still being adamant? Anyway marry the person if you truly loves him.

Just bear in mind that if you marry an Osu your children will automatically also become Osu and will face the same discrimination when it's time for them to marry also

You are also part of the problem @also referring to the person with such word(OSU).....i think you should first work on that.

Op wake up, many Igbo ladies are now marrying Yoruba, Niger Delta and even Northerners



if your parents don't want you to marry your fellow tribesman all in the name of mumu OSU then marry outside Igbo land to shock them



I've never see Fulani and Igbo different, the duo practise archaic tradition and share the same thing in commom

People still referring to some fellow humans as OSU,
In this era and 21st century?!




For those of us that have forever been wondering, what OSU OUTCAST means, here you have it.....

The Osu caste system, which is prevalent in Anambra, Imo and some areas in Ebonyi states, discriminates against families which in the ancient times were dedicated to the local deities because human sacrifice was required to cleanse the land of abominations. The Osu were mostly slaves and other categories of persons considered as “inferior”, as opposed to those who were “freeborn” or “Nwadiala”. As outcasts, they were discriminated against and not accepted by the mainstream of society.

In spite of efforts by clerics, political leaders and social crusaders to consign this system to the dustbin of history it is still being stubbornly observed in many communities. In 1956, the Eastern Nigerian House of Assembly had passed a law abolishing it, but it was not implemented.

There is no reason for this caste system to remain in these modern times. Slavery was abolished long ago, and no human sacrifice is going on anywhere in Nigeria except as a criminal offence linked to some dark cults. The constitution of Nigeria declares every person free and equal before the law. All Nigerians are constitutionally entitled to fundamental human rights, which include the right to freedom from discrimination and the dignity of the human person.

To end the Osu and similar inhuman caste systems wherever they are being practiced in Nigeria requires a combination of cultural reforms, law enforcement and active sensitisation. Serious legal actions need to be taken against any form of discrimination and dehumanisation.

We call on traditional authorities and churches in Igboland to prevail on every community still practising the Osu caste system to abolish it.

SAY NO TO OSU CASTE SYSTEM and let us all live as brothers and sisters in peace.
#EndOsu
Thank you!

We Rise!

Pls for the sake of peace and probity, leave that relationship, let things u don't know when they began slide. Even when we know that system ought to have banished long time ago, but then are you ready to suffer subjugation from your family?
Pls leave it.

They say "Love is blind". To me this is one of those instances where love will open even if it's eye, look very well, consider all the cons before going blind again.
If you want to bell the cat, I wish you good luck.
