Lovers dead at Okija, Anambra State.

Should we keep loosing our youths? Two lovers both held from from Okija, Anambra State drank snipper because their parents refused to give their consent to get married all because of Osu And Ohu Caste. Why can’t other communities emulate the good people of Abba Anambra state, Nri, Nsukka and so many other communities that have abolished Osu Caste. People should be allowed to marry the love of their lives. The two lovers left a written note, read below:

Racism in disguise...
How can we separate after 6 solid years of dating and getting so use to each other? how???
Is it a crime to be held from Okija Anambra state? We both are from Okija in Ihiala local Government Area, Anambra State, Nigeria. We have always wanted to spend the rest of lives together, we’ve always planned our future together. We have always struggled to secure a better future, now that things are gradually turning around for us, they’re saying we can’t get married, all because of Osu and Ohu Caste, all because of an ancient belief that has been abolished in other villages. The people of Okija chose to live in the past, all as a result of ignorance. God created everyone equally so why would human beings discriminate just because of the ignorance of our forefathers? Why will we keep sufferering for what we know nothing about, for something we didn’t do??? Why do we still chose to stay in the dark? This is racism in disguise, yet we want to be treated equally in the white man’s land, charity they say begins at home.
We made up our minds to end it all because we can’t stay without each other. Ndi Okija, say No to Osu Caste!!!
