June 10, 2014 – Fulani Emir Of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Married His Cousin, Princess Sadiya Bayero

Meet Princess Sadiya Ado Bayero, the daughter of late Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero.

She is the first wife of former CBN Governor Sanusi Lamido Sanusi. The couple married over 20 years ago.

The funny thing is that Sadiya is Sanusi’s cousin… So the current Emir of Kano married his cousin.

The late Ado Bayero was Sanusi’s grand uncle since he was a brother to the deposed Emir, who was Sanusi’s grandfather.

Fulani culture believes destiny has got him there, so he is permitted to marry his relative.

Check out a picture of them 26 years ago.

Apart from Sadiya, Sanusi has another wife identified as Maryam Sanusi.
