The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero has married a second wife, Hauwa’u Adamu Abdullahi Dikko, on Friday in the state.
The wedding was conducted quietly on Friday at the residence of the late Jarman Kano, Professor Isah Hashim, located at Nasarawa GRA Kano State.
According to reports, the bride is said to be a direct descendant of Malam Jamo, who was a brother to the late emir of Kano, Ibrahim Dabo.
Marriage plans between the 60-year-old monarch and his long-term girlfriend was reported late last year. It was gathered that the emir had been married to only one wife for over three decades and they have four children together.
The Madakin Kano, Alhaji Yusuf Nabahani Ibrahim, represented the family of the groom during the marriage rites, while Alhaji Shehu Hashim served as that of the bride.
