Reno Omokri, a controversial author and former Presidential aide, has advised and specified reasons why only virgins should be paid for the bride price.
This was revealed by the Amazon best-selling author and former spokesperson for former President Goodluck Jonathan in a post he made on Twitter today, November 7.
According to him, in Exodus chapter 22, from verse 16 to 17, there is biblical evidence that bride prices should only be paid for women who are to be married as virgins.
In addition,Reno Omokri claimed that bride prices are supposed to be paid for only virgins and not non-virgins in deeply rooted traditional African culture.
“What I am going to say will shock people. Scripturally, Bride Price is ONLY paid for virgins. Don’t argue with me. Argue with God. See Exodus 22:16-17. By virtue of Scripture (and also in traditional African society), you pay no Bride Price for non virgins. #RenosNuggets #EndSARS” .
