I got on twitter only to Find twitter literally on fire over the supposed giving out the hand Of a 10 year girl in marriage to a 28 years old man in Kano surfaced online.

I have tried to think this through and it honestly leaves me in chilles.

The wedding is said to have taken place this past Sunday.

I think this is a sorry situation which the Government must look into. The child at this age is in no way capable Of understanding the implications and requirement for being married and even if the family will come up With the excuse that they might keep her till she is mature, i worry that she is married With out her consent as an adult who can be responsible for her decisions.
