A Nigerian man has been forced to dissolve his marriage of one month after discovering his new wife is an ‘Osu’ (an outcast by Igbo tradition).

According to @_Oluchy who shared the info on Twitter, the man involved is her cousin and he dated his wife for five years without knowing that she is an Osu.

The Osu Caste System is an ancient practice in Igboland that discourages social interaction and marriage between a group of people, called Osu and free-borns (Nwadiala).

It’s believed that Osus have been dedicated to the deities of Igboland and as such, considered inferior to the class of the Nwadiala people.

Taking to Twitter to relay her cousin’s story, @_Oluchy advised Igbos to ask their partners questions about their ancestry so they don’t end up like her cousin.



She wrote,

Quote
“So my cousin just called me from Abj telling me his newly married wife just left. A woman he’s dated for 5years and they recently tied the knot over there.

Apparently he found out she’s an outcast (osu). Man didn’t ask questions, just went straight and got married.

I asked him why he never asked when they were dating, he said he didn’t think she’d be one.

Now a one month wedding has been dissolved just like that.

See ehn asking your partner some questions before marriage is very important o.

Lol. A full breed marrying an outcast has consequences, it’s not about new generation or old generation. It is what it is.

No matter how we package it. Even though it’s been nullified, it’ll be very difficult to let go. I didn’t make the rules, so don’t come here to insult me.

No one discriminates anyone. They can vibe, but can’t marry. That’s all.

When y’all are done crying here, take an osu to your people for marriage, come back and tell us the outcome.”

So this useless tradition still exists in igboland? U travel overseas and complain about racism. But look at what you are doing to your own kind at home. Someone from your own tribe. U call your tribesmen inferior because of a senseless tradition from the past. And I'm sure this man is educated with plenty degrees.

Just imagine oo. So you dedicated these people to your deities so that your land can be blessed. Now those who are the “sacrificial lamb” are inferior you that is lazy and contributed nothing for spiritual blessings on your land you are the “superior” over them. It’ doesn’t make any sense even spiritually. Because those who gave their blood should have the glory. Jesus was a sacrificial lamb but today He gets all the glory in heaven and earth. Follow Jesus’ examples oh ye Biafrans
