A particular 17-year-old boy who is simply identified as Aliyu and his 15-year-old fiancée, Aisha, have released their prewedding pictures ahead of their wedding, next week, in Sokoto.
According to report, Aliyu is following his family tradition of marrying early. The male children of his family marry at the age of 17, while the female ones marry at 15.
However, in extreme cases, they marry at the age of 19. The tradition was allegedly embraced to prevent them from fornicating and also to allow them see their grandchildren.
