According to report, the girl recently completed secondary school and is being enrolled for advanced level studies. The secret wedding fatiha held inside the palace of the Lamido minutes after the Jumma'at prayer on Friday Sept. 25th. 
The emir only sent out invitation to some dignitaries across the country, and Kano government officials sneaked into Yola for the wedding fatiha to avoid journalists.

The marriage has attracted serious outrage by many Nigerians on social media who feel it's child abuse for an old man like the Emir to marry an 18 years old girl.

Already, the popular hashtag #ChildNotBride has been trending with man Nigerians blasting the Emir. But don't we has such relationship in the civilised world?

Do you think the Emir did something wrong, especially if the girl is happy about the marriage?
