Before the spread of Christianity in Africa, tradition, and culture permitted men to marry more than one wife.
Although the church forbids polygamy, there is a section of men who still follow the traditional route and marry more wives with Islam allowing men to marry not more than four wives.
This is perhaps what inspired a Nigerian woman to happily attend her husband’s wedding and go to the extent of feeding her new co-wife.
It is alleged that the woman was actually the chief organizer of her husband’s huge wedding to her would be co-wife.
A section of people showed support to the woman and complimented her for embracing her culture without shame.
One user twitted,” May Allah bless this woman, I hope to be this obedient to Allah one day.”
Another added, “this is such a beautiful thing.”
Other criticized the move, stating that she might have poisoned the food she was feeding her co-wife.
