From the letter which they had left behind, the two lovers have been dating themselves for good six years and had planned the future together.

They had promised each other never to separate but be together Forever until the ancient belief, also a tradition from the Eastern part of Nigerians, the Igbo tribes demolished 'a building which has been built up to the top beam(lintel) level' through their parents.

The two lovers left a written note, read below:

Racism in disguise...

How can we separate after 6 solid years of dating and getting so use to each other? how???

Is it a crime to be held from Okija Anambra state? We both are from Okija in Ihiala local Government Area, Anambra State, Nigeria. We have always wanted to spend the rest of lives together, we’ve always planned our future together. We have always struggled to secure a better future, now that things are gradually turning around for us, they’re saying we can’t get married, all because of Osu and Ohu Caste, all because of an ancient belief that has been abolished in other villages. The people of Okija chose to live in the past, all as a result of ignorance. God created everyone equally so why would human beings discriminate just because of the ignorance of our forefathers? Why will we keep sufferering for what we know nothing about, for something we didn’t do??? Why do we still chose to stay in the dark? This is racism in disguise, yet we want to be treated equally in the white man’s land, charity they say begins at home.

We made up our minds to end it all because we can’t stay without each other. Ndi Okija, say No to Osu Caste!!!

What Can you say about this? Who was wrong, the parents or the Lovers?
