A man going by the handle @KingNestle posted a photo of a blood-stained bedsheet on Twitter, claiming that he had deflowered his 16-year-old wife.
The post sparked widespread outrage and raised serious concerns about child marriage and the young girl involved’s safety.
@KingNestle expressed his apparent pride in the now-viral tweet, writing:
“Allahu Akbar my 16-year-old wife was a virgin. May Allah make our marriage last a lifetime.”
The image of the blood-stained bedsheet that accompanied the tweet heightened the controversy surrounding the situation.
My 16-year-old wife was a virgin, says a man as he posts a photo of a blood-stained bedsheet.
He also revealed that he and she have been together since 2019.
The fact that @KingNestle has been in a relationship with the young girl since 2019 raises the possibility of child marriage, as the legal marriage age in Nigeria is 18 years.
The incident sparked a social media firestorm about the prevalence of child marriage.
