Man claims 14-year-old girl became mentally ill after she was married off to a 50-year-old prophet (photos)

A Nigerian human rights advocate has exposed a family after they allegedly married their 14-year-old daughter to a 50-year-old man.

The activist identified as Gwamnishu Harrison also claimed that the girl is mentally ill. The young man recounted how he received a complaint from someone in Benue state, that a teenager had been married off to a 50-year-old Benue-based prophet.

Harrison explained that he received the tip about the 14-year-old girl named Nonye two weeks ago. He also alleged that Nonye had become mentally unstable after she was married off to the prophet by her parents.

The advocate expressed that he would need the support of government officials in Delta state and that of people of Benue state to retrieve the girl and give her the proper care she needs.
