Man Arrested For Marrying Off Underaged Daughter...

A resident of Anambra state, Uzochukwu Okoli has been arrested by the Anambra State Government for arranging the marriage of his underaged daughter.

Okoli was arrested following his daughter’s report to the Ministry of Women and Social Welfare regarding the abuse she was suffering from her father and the man he compelled her to marry.
After the demise of their mother, Chioma Okoli, the daughter who is presently 16 years old, revealed that their father relocated them from Edo state, where they were pursuing their education, in order to find a husband for her...
She alleged that at the age of 14, she was initially compelled to live with a man who was over 70 years old.
However, after some time, she returned to her father’s house before eventually being married off to Chinedu Nweke, a 34-year-old man.

Chioma, accompanied by her older sister, explained that her stay with Chinedu has been an absolute nightmare as she has been subjected to physical abuses.
She said after series of abuse, she took the courageous decision to flee with her 9-month-old baby.
In his defence, the father, Uzochukwu Okoli claimed that his daughter is 18 years old.
The enraged father threatened to deal with the daughters if he regains his freedom.
However, the Commissioner for Women and Social Welfare, Ify Obinabo, directed that the case be taken to court in order for the children to receive justice.
Obinabo emphasized the importance of parents being vigilant of their children and guide them appropriately, rather than force them into early marriages that could ruin their futures.
She said Okoli and Chinedu Nweke will soon be charged to court.


  1. What kind of father figure is this? Nawa oo

  2. The yeye man will never see freedom again his life time,,useless goat of a father and the useless man that married her..they should rot in jail

  3. He is still threatening his daughter, meaning he is not sorry for what he did and will easily do it again.
    An abysmal excuse of a father! Useless man can't work to take care of his kids, he is looking for people to offload them on. Imagine a 14 year old being forced to marry a 70 year old man.
    They should go arrest that 70 year old former partner too, let them all be looked in prison forever.

  4. Ds kin father fit sleep with e children sef & even if e wife still dey alive, she fit no get mouth to talk. Who know how e treat e wife &wetin kpai her. God is merciful, otherwise, plenty people for dey get instant justice.

  5. This is so very sad. How can we help these girls financially 😭

  6. The best thing a woman can do for her future children, is to choose very well the man who will father them. Poverty is no excuse to choose a person of poor character.

    I applaud this teenager for her bravery and the other sister for standing together with her. I hope in the deepest part of my heart that the system works for them and a good and competent judge is assigned to their case. These girls cannot have the system fail them too, this is all they have at this point. Their bravery must be rewarded and the opportunity for a better life open up for them.

  7. Only God knows how much he collected from the 'husband'. This one na end time father. Somebody that is supposed to be the one protecting his girl child as some men do( some won't even allow another man to talk to their daughter not to talk of marrying her out) , he is just useless. So 18years is old enough to marry? This man is definitely high! And it was smart of the girl and her elder sister for reporting their father. Let him face the law.

  8. Poverty is a demon,fight it with all your power

  9. Satanic father.

  10. This is no news, child marriage Is very common among the Igbos. A girl of seventeen can be given to a man of forty in marriage 🙄😏

  11. After Hausa, na Igbos take second position for child marriage.
