According to an exclusive report by SaharaReporters, Senate President Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan married his new wife in a very private ceremony in Borno State.
The Senate President’s new bride is Zainab Algoni Abdulwahid, a young Shuwa Arab girl, according to SaharaReporters.
On Friday, the low-key wedding was held at Sheikh Sharif Ibrahim Saleh’s mosque in Maiduguri.
According to SaharaReporters, the event was held in private to minimize public scrutiny, and Zainab is anticipated to relocate to Abuja on Sunday.
A small party was also hosted at the bride’s family’s home in Maiduguri’s Gwange 1 Ward, Malut Shuwa Street.
“Lawan, Nigeria’s Senate President, married a young Shuwa Arab girl in Maiduguri. “They became hooked after Jumu’at Prayer on Friday in Maiduguri,” Zainab Algoni Abdulwahid said. On Sunday, the bride will fly to Abuja. The ceremony took place in secret.
The Senate President was unable to attend the Nikaah, but he dispatched a delegation to complete the task.
“However, the bride had her wedding ceremony in their home in Maiduguri’s Gwange 1 Ward, Malut Shuwa Street,” a source told SaharaReporters.
