Marriage Helps Man Regain His Census

One census taker went above and beyond the call of duty during the Nigerian headcount last March. 23-year-old Mariam Jadesola Okikiola agreed to marry a mentally disturbed man so long as he agreed to be enumerated.

She stressed that he did not answer her questions, but after two minutes, he said, "if you want me to answer your question, you have to marry me."

Mariam said she wanted to run away so that the lunatic would not pounce on her, “but I summoned courage again and I said, I will marry you."

The enumerator stated that the moment the mad man heard that she would marry him, he gave his name as Igbayilola, adding that the building he was staying belonged to him and that he was a trained mechanic. [Link]
Sadly, the marriage ended after just 21 minutes.
