Allow us to enjoy our marriage – 60-year-old man accused of marrying 11-year-old


*Says, his is 21

By Francesca Iwambe

A 60-year-old , Aminu Danmaliki, accused of marrying an 11-year-old girl in Kano State, has spoken out about the rumour.

The video recently went viral on social media, with people claiming he married an 11-year-old girl, which they condemned, claiming that underage girls should be protected rather than married off to old men.

He also warned this intruding in their privacy to allow them enjoy their marriage in peace.

Danmaliki, via his Facebook page on Wednesday, claimed 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 , and I loved her too.

“I hope the blackmailers and doubting Thomas's will see the reality in this picture and leave us alone to enjoy our honeymoon.”
