Nigerian author, Social Commentator and Former Presidential aide, Reno Omokri has advised and stated reasons why bride price should only be paid for virgins.
The Amazon best selling author and former spokesman to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan disclosed this in a post he made on Twitter today, November 7.
According to him, biblically there is scriptural evidence in Exodus chapter 22, from its verse 16 down to 17 that bride price should only be paid for women who are to be married as virgins.
Writing further, Reno Omokri also argued that in deeply rooted traditional African society, bride price is meant to be paid for only virgins and not non virgins.
In his words, “What I am going to say will shock people. Scripturally, Bride Price is ONLY paid for virgins. Don’t argue with me. Argue with God. See Exodus 22:16-17. By virtue of Scripture (and also in traditional African society), you pay no Bride Price for non virgins.
