Church Set Ablaze After Priest Joins Brother And Sister In Marriage
This has to be one of most bizarre stories in recent times.
A brother's 'crazy affection' for his sister has made him take her down the aisle .
A mathematics teacher in a secondary school in the Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State, Chiadikobi Ezeibekwe, has married his 17-year-old sister, claiming that God told him to do so.
Ezeibekwe said he had a revelation where God told him to marry his sibling.
The teacher quoted Bible passages in Deuteronomy to illustrate that siblings could marry each other.
He said, “One advantage of doing this is that it discourages divorce. It also retains family values and norms.”
It was gathered that the wedding was conducted by Chiadikobi’s elder brother, Chijioke Ezeibekwe, who is the priest of Dwelling Fullness of God Church, Agba.
Enraged by the act, the youth of the village set the church, Dwelling Fullness of God Church, where the wedding was conducted, on fire.
Ezeibekwe said, “I don’t feel guilty. I don’t feel ashamed. I don’t feel intimidated in any way. Only God can stop us.”
Reacting, the traditional prime minister of Ekwulobia, Gabriel Ezeukwu, said, “Agba village youths, who saw the marriage as an abomination, set ablaze the church where the wedding took place.
“I restrained them from further action against the man and his family. If it were in the past, the entire family would be burnt down because this is a grave abomination and sin.”
