Lockdown: Couple tie knot by proxy in Benue

A traditional marriage was conducted at the weekend by proxy in Gboko Local Government Area (LGA) of Benue State following the implementation of the COVID-19 lockdown directive by the Federal Government which prevented the couple from being present together for the ceremony.

It was reported that the groom, who resides in Lagos State, could not travel to Benue State to physically tie the knot with his bride on the scheduled, Saturday, May 9, 2020 as a result of the ban on interstate travel across the country in an attempt to fight coronavirus.

The bride, Jane Mwuese Jegu of Ipav, Gboko LGA, therefore, agreed to traditionally hook her groom, Engr. Timothy Aindohemba Tim of Ikyuravtiev, Katsina Ala LGA, both in Benue State by proxy after effort to ensure the physical presence of the groom failed.

ZFather of the groom, 62-year-old Thomas Terver Tim, however, stood in for his son while the couple’s engagement photo was displayed to symbolise the groom’s presence at the home of the bride in Tse Andrew Jegu, Kilometre 5, Gboko- Mkar road where the marriage took place in Ipav Gboko LGA.
