Emir of Kano secretly marries 18-year old Adamawa princess..

A scoop from Kano, claims that the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, got married to his 4th wife, an 18 year old Adamawa princess.
"Emir of Kano just wedded Lamido Adamawa's daughter Sa'adatu. The Emir was absent but in attendance was the Wakili Kano and the governor of Kano. The wedding took place after juma'at prayers at the Lamido palace"
I didn't carry the story because there were no photos and I didn't have anyway of confirming it. But it looks like it may be true. A few online news sites have confirmed that the Emir indeed tied the knots with Sa’adatu Barkindo-Musdafa, the daughter of the Lamido of Adamawa, Muhammadu Barkindo Musdafa, yesterday

According to Premium Times, the lady recently completed secondary school and is being enrolled for advanced level studies. The secret wedding fatiha held inside the palace of the Lamido minutes after the Jumma’at prayer.  The emir only sent out invitation to some dignitaries across the country, and Kano government officials sneaked into Yola for the wedding fatiha to avoid journalists.
