Concise News reports that Wayas, a lecturer in the Department of Linguistics, University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) says “a typical Tiv person is not happy when you go near his wife.”

The don explains to Vanguard: “In the olden days, our people married so many wives to help them in farms. As a result, each of the wives had a hut. The man of the house will normally ask one of the wives to leave her hut for the stranger or visitor and join him in his hut because they didn’t have what we call visitors’ room now.

“There is the possibility that the visitor might develop a relationship with the wife due to their closeness, but the man of the house did not give her willingly to the visitor.”
