Joan Igwe says Yul should be ready to give up his children

In a chat with Legit.ng, Joan Igwe said Edochie is at risk of losing his children if he collects the bride price he paid to his first wife's family.

She said:

"It's a tradition with Ebonyi people. Once he takes his bride price, he should forget about his children. The tradition is still practiced in the state today. Why would a man ask for a refund of the bride price? How much did he even pay that he is asking for it to be refunded? Does he think women are cheap and worthless and that they just marry them and divorce them anyhow? If he divorces her and he is asking for a bride price, then let him take his cheap bride price and lose his children."
