The 90-year-old Emir of Daura, Alhaji Faruk Umar Faruk, has married a 22-year-old lady, A’isha Yahuza Gona.
The wedding occurred in Katsina State’s Safana town, according to sources who spoke with Daily Trust.
The insider also revealed that the Emir and A’isha just had a week-long relationship before they were wed in a low-key ceremony.
A second source informed the newspaper that the newlywed was already residing in her marital residence in Daura.
Recall that the traditional ruler allegedly wed Aisha Iro Maikano, a 20-year-old woman, in December of the previous year.
Faruk, who is claimed to be 90 years old, is the 60th Emir of the Daura Emirate.
He ascended the throne in February 2007 after Sarkin Muhammadu Bashar dan Umaru passed away.
Alhaji Yahuza Gona, a former local government leader in Safana, is the father of the bride.
