Emir of Kano, Sanusi, Denies Plans To Marry 17-Year-Old
The Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi Lamido, was earlier reported to be planning to marry the 17 year old daughter of the Lamido of Adamawa. The Emire has now denied those reports though he did not entirely say that he's not planning to marry a fourth wife. The Emir, who already has three wives, denied the report to Sahara Reporters via one of his aides.
The Emir said "that he fully supports the right of children not to get forcibly married before attaining the constitutionally stipulated age of 18 years". Sparking speculations there's still the possibility of his marrying a fourth wife, the Emir was said to have advised people to wait to see the real age of his wife if he decides to marry again.
