A Igbo woman identified as Mrs. Esther Nweke has been sanctioned at a cultural gathering of Igbo people in Lagos for wearing a pair of trousers to the meeting.
According to PM Express, the woman didn’t expect what she got at the meeting after she was asked to say some prayers while the meeting was rounding off.
The traditional rulers, chiefs and other leaders present at the meeting upon noticing that the woman was in a pair of trousers asked her to stop the prayers and pronounced that she had committed an abomination.
However, Mrs. Nweke insisted that since she had been nominated to say the closing prayer she would go on. This made the leaders to walk out of the venue of the meeting insisting that they will not partake in such prayer which will attract curses on them.
It was gathered that her appearance may attract further sanctions to serve as deterrent to other women who might try such in the future.
Eze Lawrence Eze had summoned the meeting of the Igbo leaders to proffer solutions to the lingering crises in Alimosho LGA CDAs over the years.
It was gathered that the Igbo people in the LG were divided among themselves with different groups having their faction leaders, which made it difficult for the monarch to identify which group to associate with.
At the meeting the leaders agreed to unite, pursue a common goal and resolved to set up a committee to look into the crisis.
However, another round of chaos started at the end of the meeting when Mrs. Nweke was nominated to say the closing prayer.
It was gathered that in any Igbo social gathering, married women are not allowed to wear trousers to such gatherings.
