Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido, denies planning to marry 17 year old girl
Emir of Kano Sanusi Lamido has denied reports that he’s planning to marry the 17 year old daughter of the Lamido of Adamawa. 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” but he didn’t rule out the possibility of marrying a fourth wife. He advised people to wait to see the real age of his wife if he decides to marry again.
