Bride Price Is Meant To Be Paid For Only Virgins — Reno Omokri

Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has said that bride price is only meant to be paid for ladies who are virgins.

Omokri stated this on Saturday via his verified handle on the micro-blogging platform, Twitter.

He quoted a Bible passage, Exodus 22:16-17, to back up his claims. According to Omokri, in traditional African society too, the bride price is not paid for non-virgins.

“If a man seduces a virgin[a] who is not betrothed and lies with her, he shall give the bride-price[b] for her and make her his wife.

“If her father utterly refuses to give her to him, (B)he shall pay money equal to the (C)bride-price for virgins.”

“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 nonvirgins. #RenosNuggets #EndSARS”
