    The Osu caste system, which is an ancient institution that prohibits any type of social engagement or marriage with a group of people known as the ‘Osu,’ was practised by the Igbos in the past.

    A deity known as Ala gives the regulations that must be followed by the people of the land in order for the land given to them by Chukwu to prosper (God).

    To prevent the wrath of the soil god, Ala, laws were enacted that required offenders found guilty of heinous actions to be sent away. Osu is the name given to these cast-offs.

    However, most people are unaware of such activities as a result of the recent revolution caused by Christianity and Western Education, but certain people have appointed themselves keepers of such knowledge. It is being passed down from generation to generation in their families.

    CAN YOU MARRY AN ‘OSU’ MAN/WOMAN NOW THAT YOU HAVE THIS INFORMATION?

      i am a typical yoruba man and my culture does not have room for those kinds of belief in it, so when i see an igbo lady whom i am interested in marrying, whether she be Osu or not.. i will still marry and love her

      Christianity and the blood of Jesus has washed all those unclean beliefs and insecurities from our lives… old things are passed away… Osu no concern me, I will marry her nonetheless

      Noooo, there is curse placed on them by the gods of the land and anyone married to them tends to suffer this until the end of his/her life

      I want to believe that this writer was not asking a general question. Because the OSU system is peculiar to the Eastern part of the country. What their system or culture they have been practising might not be binding to other people.

      Tufiakwa… In my place is taboo to associate with Osu, let alone planning to get married to a known Osu person.

      When someone is in Christ, old things including Osu system have passed away. If I love the person, why not?
