The controversial critic and author who made the statement via Twitter, said the Bible contains scriptural evidence to back up his assertion.

Quoting a verse in Exodus, Omokri said biblically bride price should only be paid for women who are to be married as virgins.

He also went further by arguing that in deeply rooted traditional African society, bride price is meant to be paid for only virgins and not non virgins.

Omokri wrote;

“What I am going to say will shock people. Scripturally, Bride Price is ONLY paid for virgins. Don’t argue with me. Argue with God. See Exodus 22:16-17. By virtue of Scripture (and also in traditional African society), you pay no Bride Price for non virgins. #RenosNuggets #EndSARS”
