Author and lawyer,Reno Omokri says the scriptures only support paying bride price for brides who are virgins not be paid for ladies who have been lost their virginity before matrimony.
He took this to his Twitter handle on Saturday November 7 at 6:33 am and wrote;
“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 Virgin. #RenosNuggets #EndSARS”.
Someone replied and said:
Don't get me wrong ye, I'm totally against sex before marriage. But why are we always making it look like virginity is only a girl thing? Both men and women should abstain from premarital sex. If u disvirgin her and u go marry another virgin who go marry her las las?? 🤷🏽
