While some social media users congratulated the couple and praised the man for his courage, others criticised the act and questioned the legality and morality of polygamy in Nigeria.

Delta State, where the wedding took place, is not among the states that recognize polygamous marriages as being equivalent to monogamous marriages. Therefore, the legal status of the marriage is unclear.

Polygamy is also a controversial issue in Nigeria, as it is often associated with religious, cultural, and socio-economic factors. Some people view polygamy as a sign of wealth, power, and prestige, while others see it as a violation of human rights, especially women’s rights.

Polygamy is also rare around the world, as most countries prohibit or restrict it by law. According to a report by the Pew Research Center, only 2% of the world’s population lives in polygamous households, and most of them are in Africa and the Middle East.
