A video of a newly wedded couple has been making rounds on social media; shows the moment a 15-year-old girl is married off to a 14-year-old boy in a south eastern state in Nigeria.
Marriage as we know of, is the legally or formally recognized union between a man and a woman, but not children. According to reports, the 14-year-old boy was forced to marry a girl who is a year older as a result of impregnating her.
In the trending video, the father of the bride gave her out to the young boy advising her to be careful as she is no longer in her father’s house.

The youngest couple’s facial expression has sparked outrage on social media with some web users condemning the act in its entirety.
