Emir of Kano, Sanusi, denies planning to marry 17 year old girl

Emir of Kano Muhammadu Sanusi has denied reports that he’s making plans to wed the 17 year old little girl of the Lamido of Adamawa. The Emir, who as of now has three wives, denied the report to Sahara Reporters through one of his associates.

He exhorted individuals to wait to see the genuine age of his wife in the event that he chooses to wed once more.
