Polygamy is part of African culture and about a century ago, African women understood that they must “accommodate ” the other woman but as westernisation and “civilisation” has come to stay majority of Africans are beginning to frown on this kind of arrangement especially the Igbo ethnic group which is ninety eight percent Christians! And the Igbo Women do not understand the concept of polygamy unlike their Northern Hausa Fulani counterparts who are in tune with polygamy and at home with it. This lack of understanding made a bride to be showered not with gifts or flowers on her wedding day but oil , in Owerri, the Igbo City Heartland.
A bride was about to get wedded and the first wife wouldn’t have any of it and drama ensued. The first Wife Attacks Husband’s New Bride With Palm Oil During Wedding ceremony.
As it is expected, confusion and commotion trailed a wedding ceremony over the weekend in Imo state after the groom’s first wife attacked the brides second wife.
According to reports, the groom went to Apostolic church at Nkwo Orji in Owerri North area of the state to wed his second wife, but the church rejected him being that he is already married.
