This is just crazy.
Three years ago, Senator Ahmed Yerima married a 14 year old Egyptian girl named Marian, which caused massive criticism from Nigerians.
The former Zamfara state governor and serving senator of the federal republic of Nigeria, Sen. Ahmed Yerima, has even made matters worse now as he has reportedly divorced her to marry another 15 year old.
City People reports that Yerima and four men, said to be members of the Zamfara State House of Assembly were in Egypt a few weeks ago for the wedding fathia of a new bride said to be 15 years old.
Marian who is now 17 and a mother of one, is believed to be the daughter of the former governor’s driver whenever he visits Egypt.
Sources say that Yerima divorced her to enable him take a new wife as he’s not allowed more than four wives.
The Senator is alleged to have married and divorced a few women in the last few years but has never changed his first three wives, only the fourth ones.
Sen. Ahmed Yerima this year was strongly pushing for the deletion of the section of the 1999 constitution which pegged the official marriage age in Nigeria as 18 years, saying it was anti-Islam.
