Wisdom Anucha, a lecturer at Abia State University (ABSU), has exchanged vows with Novella Grace, the female student he proposed to on Valentine’s Day.


Anucha gained attention after proposing to his girlfriend, who is a student in the Optometry Department, in front of other students in class.

The proposal drew criticism over concerns about a romantic relationship between a lecturer and a student.

In response, the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) at the institution said Anucha’s actions did not violate any university laws or ethical principles.


In March, the couple announced their wedding date via social media, sharing a photo of themselves in custom outfits.

Anucha recently posted pictures from their wedding ceremony on Facebook, captioning it, “And it came to pass, indeed, it is not good for him to be alone”.

The lovebirds held their church wedding on April 6 at Saint Paul’s Anglican Church in Aba.


The wedding was immediately followed by a reception at Ngwa High School, Aba.

Their traditional marriage took place a week earlier.
