Aisha Yesufu Reacts As A Man Criticized The Southerners For Tackling A Girl Who Got Married At 11yrs

Aisha Yesufu, a well-known Nigerian human rights activist, has responded to a Northern man's criticism of Southerners for attacking an 11-year-old girl who recently got married. The man had defended his actions, claiming that the marriage was based on love and mutual consent. However, many Nigerians took to social media to condemn the young girl's marriage to an elderly man.

The Northern man, sharing on his official Twitter page, claimed that the girl was actually 21 years old, not 11 as widely believed. Aisha Yesufu responded by urging the man to provide evidence to support his claim or refrain from making such statements. She emphasized that regardless of the girl's age, marrying at such a young age is unacceptable.

The issue of child marriage is a highly sensitive and controversial topic in Nigeria, with many organizations and individuals working to end the practice. Aisha Yesufu has been a vocal advocate for human rights and gender equality, and her response to this situation is in line with her ongoing efforts to protect the rights of vulnerable groups
