The Emir of Kano has married Sa’adatu Barkindo-Musdafa, the daughter of the Lamido of Adamawa, Muhammadu Barkindo-Musdafa.
Sa’adatu, 18, is the emir’s fourth wife. She recently completed secondary school and is being enrolled for higher studies.
Premium Times reports that the wedding fatiha held inside the palace of the Lamido minutes after Jumma’at prayer.
According to the report, the influential emir only sent out invitation to some dignitaries across the country, adding that Kano government officials sneaked into Yola for the wedding fatiha to avoid journalists.
The Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, was said to have acted as the guardian for the groom, while his Adamawa counterpart, Jibrilla Bindow, played the role of the bride’s guardian, who gave her hands out in marriage to the monarch.
