Twitter is a banter universe on its own; you could be left dumbfounded, red faced or in stitches… something a user found out and in the most brutal way.

Kanu Nwankwo’s marriage was brought up by Twitter user, @chigirl_x, sighting it could be unlawful and slandered the former Super Eagles star for marrying a girl 10 years his junior.

 

The former Super Eagles captain got married to his beau, Amarachi, in 2004 at the age of 28, but the stats just didn’t sit right with the concerned Lady.

 

In her tweet on Thursday, @chigirl_x went off:

Can we talk about the fact that Kanu Nwankwo married a teenager? His wife was 18 and he 28 when they got married.

Without looking at her age, I saw their wedding photos and went “that’s a child”. I…I’m really confused. How did this happen?

 

 

Whatever she had hope for; in solidarity or social change, it flipped real quick.

 

Her mentions was flooded by with some education, verbal abuse and plain twitter ‘bants’ debauchery.

 

see some of the comments below:

 

@udanshi : Some men marry girls of 12,14,15,you didn’t see that one? At 18 you an adult,it depends on your parents to want you to marry at that age or not and it is not a crime ,as far as it is a consented marriage.

 

@alexlobaloba : Wow!!!

You deserve two medals for this tweet:

1. For being a mumu.
2. In case you misplaced the first one.

 

@Capuasteve :

Lol… You do know 18 is the legal age right??

 

@GeorgeKakayor : Can we talk about the fact that you may be ignorant?

 

@Spearszed : So was 18, a University underage

My dear everything mustn’t be a drag

In all of human history, our time is when people marry the “latest, ” particularly women. And that has it’s disadvantages and advantages, I must add.

In earlier generations, teenage marriage was very common

 

@kenstine : You are right. 18 is not teenager. Adult age here in the UK is 16. That’s when you can have a right to work, and also have NI (National Insurance) that’s entitle you to govt pension. You can also decide to leave your parents and live anywhere
