The Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II has received his fourth wife four years after the wedding took place.

HRH Sa’adatu Barkindo Mustapha was brought to the Emir’s palace on Saturday while the traditional Budar Kai ceremony takes place on Sunday.

The Emir’s bride has just graduated from a University in the United Kingdom where she went to study immediately after the marriage.

KANO TODAY recalls that Sanusi II married the daughter of the Lamido of Adamawa, Muhammadu Barkindo-Musdafa, in a low-key ceremony held in in Yola on September 25, 2015.

The 4th Mrs Sanusi II was an 18-yr-old secondary school leaver when the wedding was contracted.

Kano state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, represented the emir at the event while then Adamawa governor, Jibrilla Bindow, played the role of the bride’s guardian, who gave her hand out in marriage.

Muhammadu Sanusi II was at that time away in Saudi Arabia, as leader of Nigeria’s delegation to the Hajj.

The Emir  has three other wives  – first wife Sadiya, daughter of the late emir of Kano, Ado Bayero, Maryam and Rakiya.
