The Family of Shoremi from ogun state have disown their Lesbian Daughter who Lives in Canada

Despite the law’s stand on the issue, Shalom still chose to request a license, prompting her family to publicly disown her.
The advertorial read, “The attention of Shoremi Family of Ogun State has been drawn to an application for a special marriage license sought by Shalom T. Shoremi.
“She had requested for a special marriage license at the Federal Marriage Registry on 22nd of March, 2018 to allow her to consummate a same-sex marriage, which was rejected as it in variance with the Marriage Act of the Federal Republic Of Nigeria.
“The family is disassociating itself from the move and has served ties with her.
“We also disown her on the grounds that what she planned to do is against the law in Nigeria.
“She will also not be entitled to anything from the family inheritance.”
