According to the story already trending on social media platforms, Izuchukwu is from a well known verily rich family in Ozubulu area of Anambra State.
But the little girl is from a very poor family that their parents can’t even afford to feed her and her siblings talk more of sending them to school.

The story has caught attention of many online users who have not only condemn the marriage, but also taken swipe at those involved in the marriage scam.
Notwithstanding, different report has emerged alleging that the event took place in Imo State, pointing out that the man is simply a representative of the girl’s childhood lover who reside abroad.
