However, (almost in a similar manner) in Kaduna State, there exist a 'church' where strange marriages are held, young girls are purportedly ''married to Jesus'' at various ceremonies held within the church premises. through a phone chat gathered that young ladies who seem frustrated with life, are those who are engaged in this marriage, where only the bride wears the normal white wedding gown with her bride maids, but without a groom. The officiating ministers conduct a proper marriage procession without a man standing by the side of the bride, the marriage register is signed amidst joy, singing and dancing by few friends of the bride and church members, and the wedding reception takes place outside the church premises.

According to a source in Kaduna the church was said to be owned by an Igbo woman in her late 40s, is alleged to have a great influence over her church members, so much that the girl to be married out, does not invite her parents. It was gathered that the church is being used as a cover up to lure young and frustrated ladies into secret societies. Only few friends and family friends are allowed by the church authorities to attend the wedding, because the ladies have been brain-washed and hypnotized not to invite family members. Questions are now being asked as to what happens to these girls after the wedding. Are they now under the spell of the so-called church? Are they spiritually betrothed to some to some evil forces? Do 'spiritual husbands' sleep with these girls in the night? These are the questions on the lips of many perturbed Nigerians.
