A 17-year-old boy identified as Somtochukwu and his 16-year-old fiancée has tied the knot traditionally according to Nnewi customs and tradition, over the weekend.
Reports gathered that Somtochukwu Nwachukwu dropped out of school and expressed his desire to marry his girlfriend. After much pressure from the boy, his parents agreed to his demands.
It was reported that after the traditional marriage, his parents opened a retail shop for the couple to manage and possibly take care of themselves.
It is also said that Somto is not the only child of his parents. He has an elder brother, who is a graduate and said to be staff at a hospital in Anambra.
