Emir Of Kano, Sanusi Lamido, To Marry 17-Yr-Old Girl As Fourth Wife


The paramount ruler of Kano, Emir Sanusi Lamido Sanusi (Muhammadu Sanusi II), is set to marry his fourth wife. The bridal candidate is a 17-year-old beautiful daughter of the Lamido of Adamawa, Alhaji Muhammadu Barkindo Aliyu Musdafa.

The Emir‘s decision to take this new wife is in line with Islamic injunction which prescribes a maximum of 4 wives for those who can treat all of them equally. Already, Sanusi has 3 beautiful wives – Sadiya, Maryam and Rakiya.

Like in ancient times when bonds between empires were deepened by marriages among royals and nobles across boundaries, the betrothal of the Adamawa princess to Emir Sanusi II seems to also be a move to deepen royal bond between Adamawa and Kano.
