Some Ghanaian celebrities have shared their opinions on the recent marriage between a 63-year-old traditional priest in Nungua, Gborbu Wulomo, Nuumo Borketey Laweh XXXIII, and a 12-year-old girl.

The discussions and criticisms sparked by the March 30 development have dominated Twitter trends, with celebrities voicing profound anger.

Some of these individuals have condemned the act, which they regard as dehumanizing, while others have criticized the chief’s justification that the ‘little bride’ won’t be required to fulfil sexual obligations.

They stressed that the Wulomo’s justification doesn’t make his act of marrying a minor legal.

Meanwhile, the Minister for Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs, Hon. Stephen Asamoah-Boateng, has pledged to investigate the matter and take the necessary measures.

Other institutions, like Africa Education Watch, have also urged the police to apprehend Gborbu Wulomo for unlawfully marrying an underage girl.
