The 60-year-old Kano business man, Aminu Danmaliki has refuted the claim that he got married to an underage girl.
The wedding video that went viral a couple of days ago, set the tongues wagging that he married an 11-year-old girl.
However in a statement posted on his Facebook page, Danmiliki said,
” My recent marriage with Sakina has generated a lot of tension and unfounded allegations that I married an underage girl some suggesting she is 11 years old and that she was forced to marry me. That is untrue.
The Wedding Video went viral. We decided to keep mute but was advised to state the true facts, here it is: My beloved wife is 21 years old and she made her own choice of me as her husband and I loved her too.
I hope the blackmailers and doubting Thomas will see the reality in this picture and leave us alone to enjoy our honeymoon.”
