Human life is the most prized and valued of all creation. No wonder all human activities, government policies, and the entire engagements of humanity are anchored on the betterment and sanctity of human life. Religions all over the world recognize the sacredness of human life as the highest form of creation. Sadly, the sacredness of human life has been facing a downward movement never experienced in the history of mankind in the main as a result of incidences of couples killing each other on a mere or flimsy reason of suspected marital infidelity. Nigeria media quite recently have been agog with daily reportage of such dastardly acts without a corresponding reportage of possible solution located in the multi-wives marriage or culture of the African traditional society. This work focuses on the gains of multi-wives marriage in Africa, which has been in existence since the origin of humanity in Africa. This work is a wake-up call on the media in Nigeria to rise up to the occasion and do the needful and challenge the Western culture of individualistic existentialism.
