The Emir of Daura, Faruk Umar Faruk, has reportedly married a 20-year-old bride, Aisha Iro Maikano in a recent ceremony.
As sighted on Legit, the monarch tied the knot in a low-key marriage ceremony in Katsina state with the nubile young lady after a brief courtship.
Additional information from the Daily Nigerian newspaper also added that monarch paid N1million naira dowry to the bride, who is the daughter of a high-ranking traditional title holder, Fagacin Katsina, Iro Maikano.
Sources quoted in the report said the Emir has married not less than four young wives in the last six years.
Another source close to the royal family said the emir divorced all his three wives recently, to pick a new set of four wives.
The source said: “The plan was that the emir wanted to marry at least three wives at one go.”
