Beautiful photos of Emir of Kano’s new 18 year-old bride Sa’adatu

Bride1 Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi has recently married his fourth wife and the news is creating so much buzz.
Not only because this is his fourth wife, but because his pretty bride is 18 years-old.

The Emir however defended his action by making these statements among others:

* The lady in question is 18 and therefore legally of age to marry under all laws and certainly under Muslim law.
* She is proceeding for her undergraduate education in the UK in January. She had an A in computer science in her O levels and plans to get a degree in computer science.
* Each and every one of my wives is a university graduate and some have worked and then stopped and in each case the choice was purely theirs.
* The young lady in question gave her free consent and even after the contract the wedding will not happen for a few years. By then she may be 21. If she freely consents to this I do not know on what moral grounds anyone has a grouse. She is an adult, she gave her consent, and her education is not being in anyway interrupted.

The pretty 18 year-old is called Sa’adatu Barkindo-Musdafa.

The photographer (Maigaskiya) who captured these images shared them on his Instagram Page.
