Reports making the round is that the former Central Bank Governor and current Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II has secretly tied the knot with Sa’adatu Barkindo-Musdafa, the daughter of the Lamido of Adamawa, Muhammadu Barkindo-Musdafa.
Sa’adutu who is only 18 and has just concluded her secondary school education is the fourth wife of the Emir.
The 54 year old Emir already has 3 wives, Sadiya who is the daughter of the late emir of Kano, Ado Bayero, Maryam and Rakiya.
The secret wedding was contracted in a low-keyed ceremony in the town of Yola as Kano government officials sneaked in to avoid journalists.
But as much as Sanusi tried to avoid journalist, the news of the secret marriage has filtered into town and has got a lot of people talking.
Nigerians have since reacted to the news on Twitter calling out Sanusi for marrying a child bride, but is She really a child bride? I mean an 18-year-old can obtain a drivers license, drink, smoke and do adult stuffs… so whats your take on this?
