Yaw Oppong urges caution amid controversial marriage between Ga Priest and minor

The Director of the Ghana School of Law, Barima Yaw Kodie Oppong, has urged Ghanaians to be cautious in their remarks following the controversial union between the 63-year-old Ga Priest to a 13-year-old girl.

Nuumo Borketey Laweh XXXIII, known as the Gborbu Wulomo, faced significant backlash when a video of his wedding ceremony with the young girl, Naa Okromo, became public.

The ceremony, which attracted widespread attention, took place on Saturday, March 30, 2024, in Nungua.

In an interview on The Point of View on Citi TV, Yaw Oppong, who is also the Mawerehene of Akyem Abuakwa admitted his initial outrage and that of some Ghanaians at the news of the marriage was due to the lack of understanding of exactly what had happened.

This changed when Rev Dr Daniel Nii Gyasi Ankrah, Director of Administration, Office of the Gborbu Wulomo-Shitse, clarified that the minor was customarily married to a deity and not the priest.

He praised Rev Dr Daniel Nii Gyasi Ankrah for his eloquent explanation of the customs behind the marriage, asking for forgiveness from the Nungua chiefs.

“Let’s give it to Rev Dr Daniel Nii Gyasi Ankrah, he was extremely eloquent, I have no grounds to doubt what he said. To be honest with you.”

Yaw Oppong blamed the women MCs who either deferred instructions of the marriage or got carried away by making comments that suggested that the minor was married to the 63-year-old priest and not a deity.
