Prof Sambo Junaid, Walin Sokoto stood in as the guardian of the bride while N100,000 was paid as the bride price.
Speaking shortly after the wedding, Idris thanked all those who graced the occasion and called on the newly wedded couples to live with love.
“We wish them luck and pray for Allah to guide them in their new home as they are family from today. They may soon have a son, a daughter or even twins. So I wish they would live peacefully and never allow a third party to meddle into their marriage, not even me,” the AGF said.
