It happened at Akeddei village in Sagbama local government area of Bayelsa. According to Daily Trust, the man was simply identified as Elder Akpos.

Although the minor’s parents approved the marriage and gave their blessings, the union has since caused public outcry. A child rights advocacy group, Do Foundation, is leading others in condemning the marriage.

Community sources revealed that the little girl had kept saying that Akpos was her husband. According to her, Akpos was her husband in previous life but he died prematurely.

“The little bride said if she was not allowed to marry her husband, she would have no other business in Akeddei community, and that she was going to die peacefully. In order to avoid losing the girl, the people of Akeddei decided to organise a glamorous wedding ceremony to mark the union of the two previous life lovers,” the source said.

She insisted that if she was prevented from marrying the 54-year-old man, she would die.
