Gay Marriage: Family Place A Paid Advert To Disown Daughter In Ogun State

Two unusual events happened in Nigeria surrounding the same family.

The first was that one Shalom T. Shoremi requested for a Special Marriage License to consummate same sex marriage.

The second oddity was that the Shoremi family of Ogun State disowned its daughter through a paid advertisement in the newspaper.

This came to the fore when the family placed “A Public Notice” in the newspaper on the development.

The notice signed by the Shoremi family said that its attention was drawn to an application by its daughter seeking approval of the Federal Marriage Registry for same sex marriage.

She allegedly did this on the 22nd of March, 2018.

The family hinted that the application for the special marriage license seeking for same sex marriage was rejected because it was not in consonance with the Marriage Act of Nigeria.

While disassociating itself from the attempt to legalise the same sex marriage, the family announced that it has severed ties with her.

The Shoremi family also disown Shalom for planning to violates the law of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The family also disqualified her from being entitled to inheritance from the family.
