The former Central Bank Of Nigeria (CBN) and the Emir of Kano, Malam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi (Muhammadu Sanusi II), is set to tie a nuptial knot with his fourth wife next month.
It was gathered that the wife-to-be is a 17-year-old beautiful daughter of the Lamido of Adamawa, Alhaji Muhammadu Barkindo Aliyu Musdafa.
According to a source, the traditional ruler, who already has three wives – Sadiya, Maryam and Rakiya – revealed that all is now set for the marriage rites just as the invitation cards are already in circulation at the moment. The event has been slated to take place at the Emirs Palace in July.
