The youth of the village had set ablaze the church, Dwelling Fullness of God Church, where the wedding was conducted. Ezeibekwe said he did not pay any bride price to anybody in respect of the marriage.
“I don’t feel guilty. I don’t feel ashamed. I don’t feel intimidated in any way. Only God can stop us,” he said. I had a revelation where God told him to marry his sibling. He quoted Bible passages in Deuteronomy to illustrate that siblings could marry each other. He said, “One advantage of doing this is that it discourages divorce. It also retains family values and norms.”
