Ghanaian musician, Wiyaala has sent a warning to men who are still marrying children.
She recently rescued a sixteen (16) year old Junior high school (JHS) girl in Funsi (Wiyaala’s hometown), the District capital of Wa East in the Upper West Region, from getting married to a 36-year-old farmer from Halimbogie, a small farming community near Funsi.
She also called for the arrest of the man to serve as a warning and deterrent to other men who try to indulge in the act of forcefully marrying girls under the age of 18.
The man was in custody at the Wa East District police station for three days and was later sent to the Upper West Regional office of the Domestic Violence and victim support unit (DOVSU) for further investigation.
However, that is not the end for Wiyaala.
“To any man thinking of marrying a child we have our eyes on you!” she posted on Instagram.
