Tuesday, September 24, 2019-In River State, Nigeria at a place called Okirika, virgin ladies are kept in a special room for 1-3 months where they under-go training on womanhood.
After the 3 months, a big ceremony is held where the ladies dance semi-naked infront of their family members and showered with gifts.
They are then considered ripe for marriage and men can now book them for marriage.
The culture dates back to the 16th century.
See photos of the virgin ladies in the ceremony after staying in the special room for 3 months where they are taught about woman-hood and prepared for marriage.
