Aminu Danmaliki, a 60-year-old man who made the headlines for allegedly marrying an 11-year-old girl in Kano State recently has spoken on the union.
While speaking in a statement shared on Facebook, Danmaliki clarified that his wife is 21 years old and not 11 years as people claimed on social media.
He wrote: “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 were advised to state the true facts, here it is: My beloved wife is 21 years old she made her own choice of me as her husband and I loved her too.
“I hope the blackmailers and doubting Thomases will see the reality in this picture and leave us alone to enjoy our honeymoon.”
