Wonders can never cease in this country called Nigeria! While millions of eligible bachelors are struggling to raise dowry, some kids in one village in Bauchi are getting themselves married.

On Monday the government has ordered the immediate closure of a secondary school in the state capital where students conducted illegal marriage ceremonies among themselves.

Teachers at the Sa’adu Zungur Model Primary and Secondary School in the state capital, Bauchi, were said to have happened upon a group of students celebrating the wedding of a pair of students and immediately reported the incident.

One of the supposed grooms was said to have paid a female student the sum of N500 as her bride price while their classmates contributed money for snacks. One student said  “We learned that the groom brought large sums of money to the bride’s friends for settlement after marriage had taken place.”

The Bauchi state deputy governor, Nuhu Gidado, who doubles as the state’s commissioner for education in a statement on Monday through his special assistant on Communication, Yakubu Adamu, said the closure of the school was most necessary and effective from March 10.
