IMO REVERTS SET TO HOLD THEIR IGBO ISLAMIC MARRIAGE
A couple from Imo state, south east Nigeria who converted to Islam are set to tie the nuptial knot in an Islamic marriage ceremony at a mosque in the state.
A social media user took to Nairaland to share pictures of the couple whose marriage has been set for the 10th of April, 2020. According to the user, the lovers’ marriage will be the ‘’first open Igbo Muslim marriage.’’
“There have been this notion that Igbos are all Christians, well I present to you, the first open Igbo Muslim marriage. Igbos are know to be very accommodating. Many have had this erroneous belief that Igbos don’t have Muslim brethren but in fact many Igbos have heard many positions in the Islamic arena.
“We have the likes of Sheikh Abdullahi Adam Idoko, who is the Chief Imam of University of Nigeria Nsukka. Ustaz Christian Isah Okonkwo, who was made the Chief Imam of University of Ibadan in the 1980s, Alhaji Abudulaziz Chibuzo Ude, who is the founder of Nok Publishers and First African editor at Double Day.“
“These awesome couple are set to tie knot on 10 of April 2020 in Imo state Nigeria,” the user wrote.
