A 17-year-old boy identified as Aliyu and his 15-year-old fiancée, Aisha, have released their prewedding pictures ahead of their wedding, next week, in Sokoto.
Reports have it that Aliyu is following his family tradition of marrying early as male children in 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.
Some Nigerians are reacting on social media after the alleged pre-wedding photos of a young intending couple were shared online.
According to reports, the wedding of the couple who are 17 and 15 years old, is taking place today.
While some Nigerians are wishing them a happy married life, others are concerned that they are both too young for marriage.
