Over the weekend, a 17-year-old boy, Somto and his 16-year-old fiancée, traditionally tied the knot according to customs and tradition of Nnewi.
Somto comes from the Nwachukwu family in Okofia Village, Otolo Nnewi, according to reports made available to Ananaedoonline.
Somto, who is said to be the last child of his parents, was said to have dropped out of school last month, insisting that he wants to get married.
After mounting serious pressure on his family, the family finally decided to accept his request, and also sponsored the traditional marriage in which the public was invited.
According to reports, Somto is not the only son of his parent, since he has an elder brother, who is said to be a graduate and is currently working in a Hospital within Anambra State.
According to sources, Somto’s parents opened a retail shop after the traditional marriage for the couple to run and possibly take care of themselves.The name of the bride and her place of origin is yet to be ascertained as at the time of writing.
