Your African Native Wedding Is As Holy As A Church Wedding — Reno Omokri

Published

on

Reno Omokri

Reno Omokri, a former aide to erstwhile President, Goodluck Jonathan, has stated in his recent article that there is nothing Christian about a White Wedding.

According to the popular author, most Africans have a damaged psyche which has made them believe that only church weddings are acceptable in the eyes of God.

He wrote:

“Church marriage or White Wedding, originated in the Catholic Church in the year 1563.

“There is NOTHING Christian about it and EVERYTHING European about it. It is not even in The Bible.

“Your native African marriage is as valid, in God’s sight, as a White Wedding‪. The psyche of many Africans is so damaged to the extent they believe church weddings are the only acceptable marriage in God’s eye.

“From Genesis to Revelation, the Bible has nothing like church wedding. It is a European custom, no better than native African weddings #‬RenosNuggets”

    TRADITIONAL WEDDING IS THE HOLIEST WEDDING.
    YOU ARE OBEYING THE WORDS OF GOD.
    FOR RESPECTING THE TRADITION, YOUR PARENTS WILL BLESS THE MARRIAGE.
    BUT WHERE YOU DID NOT OBEY YOUR TRADITION ; YOUR PARENTS WILL COURSE YOU , AND THE MARRIAGE WILL NOT GO WELL.
    PLEASE CHURCH MARRIAGE IS ASKING GOD TO SANCTIFY THE MARRIAGE.
    IT IS NOT A MUST THAT YOU WILL DO CHURCH WEDDING. ANY GOD FEARING MAN OF GOD WILL NOT WED YOU IF YOU HAVE NOT COMPLETED THE TRADITIONAL.
    AFTER TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE IS COURT MARRIAGE, FOR DOCUMENTATION.

    I wouldn’t say that. I’d just say it’s as binding as a church wedding. What matters is if you’re a Christian it should be done to the witnessing of your brethren and in the presence of God. A church building is very much omittable when planning your marriage.

    African Traditional Wedding Is More Holier Than The Borrowed Slave Mentally White Wedding. Truth Must Be Told, Once Your Parents And Kings Men Blessed and Ordained Your Marriage, God Has Blessed And Ordained It Also. It’s In My Opinion, That Our Custodians Should Introduced A Legitimize Traditional Wedding Certificate. To Bring Back Our Traditional Heritage To The Global Lime Lights.

Anambra Community Banishes 75-Year-Old Man, Wife, Son Over Alleged Sale Of Drugs

Published

on

Anambra State - South-east

A 75-year-old man, Mr Reuben Onwuegbunem from Orebe village, Amansea in Awka North Local government area of Anambra state has called on security agents and Anambra State Government to come to his rescue after few elements allegedly connived and banished him and his family from the community.

The father of six who was visibly crying while narrating his ordeal said his son was attacked by two claiming to be local vigilante in the village for reasons yet unknown to him.

“Ukwa and Friday security personnel came to my house in the evening and started fighting my son who was outside urinating after they flashed him torchlight, I rushed out to ask them what was the problem they started beating me too.”

According to him, the security men immediately rang the village bell leading to other youths coming out to join in beating and dragging him on the floor.

“They started beating me, my son and my wife. They destroyed all the property in my house, my two motorcycles and other valuables saying that I have been disobeying the rules in the community.”

Mr Onwuegbunem, therefore, appealed to government and security agents to urgently come to his aid by visiting the community to ascertain the true situation of the matter that must have informed their decision in him and his family.

“I have reported the matter three different times to police. Our President General is aware but, I am sure they consulted him before coming to destroy my house and he aligned with them for reasons I don’t know.

“The only crime I committed is because I asked them to leave my land inheritance for me as the only surviving son of my father.”

His wife Mrs Ngozi Onwuegbunem recalled that life had been very unbearable for her and her children since she ran to her father’s village for safety.

“I went to process garri in my husband’s village, some youth came there and said that they don’t want to see me there again, I was confused as I parked my cassava and ran back to my father’s house.”

In an interview, a community leader in the area, Chief Cosmos Okonkwor from Umuokpala village, Amansea, who expressed worry over the development called for peaceful resolution of the matter as it was beginning to impede on the development of the area.

“Honestly, this thing is strange to me, I have tried to call on the Orebe chairman of the village and others to come together and settle this matter to no avail. Whatever government will do please let them come and do it fast for the safety of lives and property.”

Also in an interview, the Chairman of Orebe village, Mr Okechukwu Nwafor-Iga, said the village had certain rules and regulations which had always been violated by Mr Onwuegbunem and his family members.

“The rules and regulations in my village were set even by the same man who has been violating them, all we want is peace and progress in our town. We can’t support evil at all. How can one person at all times be having issues with the entire village? It’s unfair, he is an adult but not doing what is right.”

Mr Nwafor Iga explained that the village had a strong law against the selling of Indian hemp and smoking it in public, but alleged that Mr Onwuegbunem and his family refused to respect the communal order.

Another resident of Orebe village, Amansea, Mrs Charity Arinze, narrated how the said man had been fighting security men and disrespecting constituted authorities by continuing in the selling of drugs and indulging in diabolic activities.

“That man is evil. He wanted to kill two security men just because they asked him and his son, Rapuluchukwu, to stop selling and smoking hemp openly.”

A former Chairman of the village, Mr Ejike Onyekwere and a youth leader Mr Chukwuonso Okafor said, “We heard the voice of a security man screaming inside our brother’s house, so we rushed to rescue them. That was when the youths tried to force the door open and we saw charms and pictures of different people pinned on them with bloodstains before we could search the house, Mr Onwuegbunem and his family had abandoned the security men on the floor and ran away.

“The village did not banish them as he is claiming, rather he is running away from all he had committed against his people. If he comes back today and shows remorse, we will accept him but on the condition that he will abide by the rules of our village which was made for a peaceful coexistence of all of us.”

When contacted to confirm that the matter has been reported three times to the police as well as the extent to which police have waded into the matter, the Police Public Relations Officer of the Anambra state command SP Haruna Mohammed did not respond to several phone calls as at the time of filing this report.

UNIBEN Student Raped, Killed Inside Church In Edo

Published

on

A 100 level student of the University of Benin, UNIBEN from the department of Microbiology, faculty of Life Sciences, Miss Vera Uwaila Omozuwa, has reportedly been raped and killed inside a church in Edo state.

The 22-year-old victim was said to have been raped on Friday 29th May near Ikpoba Hill in Benin City, at her church, the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).

According to reports gathered, the deceased had gone to the church to read as she prepared for the possible school resumption after months of staying at home as a result of the lockdown order.

The perpetrators were said to have attacked her at the RCCG Ohovbe road branch, raped and smashed her head with a fire extinguisher, leaving her for dead.

Miss Vera was rushed to the University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH), where she battled for her dear life at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

She, however, gave up the ghost Saturday midnight, May 30, following excess loss of blood and deep cuts sustained from the attack.

A family source, who confirmed the development, described the deceased as “an easy-going somebody (sic).” Her remains had been deposited at the morgue.

Nigerians have since taken to Twitter, using #JusticeForUwa, to demand for justice for the fallen student and one of the numerous victims of rape in the country.
