You Have The Right To Sleep With Your Brother's Wife If He's Abroad – Lutterodt

Counselor George Lutterodt speaking to eTV has revealed a brother has the right to sleep with his brother’s wife if he represents him at his engagement.

According to the relationship counsellor, representing others at their engagement is wrong.

“You are not in Ghana and you want to marry this fine lady and your family ask your brother to stand in for you. Libation is poured on you on behalf of your brother and when they finish, they call the husband abroad to let him know the ceremony is done.

When that happens, the one who stood in has the right to have sexual intercourse with the girl because traditionally the wife was given to whoever was present and the witnesses don’t know the one abroad. The whole point is that, engagement without the person marrying the girl is null and void spiritually and morally.”

Moments after Rockstone’s dig at Roro, the sound engineer took to his Facebook timeline to point out the success of his recent works and rated himself far above the hiplife grandpapa.

Boko Haram crisis: Nigeria air strike 'kills commanders'

Nigeria's army says it has killed several commanders of the Islamist group Boko Haram in an air strike and seriously wounded its disputed leader.
An army spokesman told the BBC's Hausa service that Abubakar Shekau's shoulder was badly injured in the strike on Friday in north-eastern Borno state.
There has been no independent confirmation of the strike.
Claims by the army that it has killed Shekau have turned out to be false on previous occasions.
The reports should therefore be treated with caution, says the BBC's Africa Security correspondent Tomi Oladipo.
Boko Haram is fighting to overthrow Nigeria's government and establish an Islamic State in the north.

An army spokesman said warplanes struck as the militants met for Friday prayers last week at a village deep within the Sambisa forest in Borno State.
The army's announcement coincided with the arrival of US Secretary of State John Kerry in Nigeria on a two-day visit. 
Speaking in the northern city of Sokoto, M…
