Chiadikobi claimed that God told him to do so.
Talking about the stigma that has affected her learning at school and beyond, the 17-year-old girl said, “Because of what people have been saying about us, that’s why I stopped school for now.
“Until we settle down, until everything has calmed down, then if I hear from God that I should continue, I’ll continue.”
Also speaking, the mother of the newly married siblings, said, “Our neighbours don’t interact with us anymore because we are still trashing out the matter with the police.
“They said it’s a taboo and an abomination and until cleansing is carried out then the communion will start again and the community is preparing to carry out the cleansing.
“But no matter the cleansing, it’s only God that can neutralize any abomination, if any.”
