The Accountant General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris, has finalised plans to wed a 16-year-old Kano State girl, identified as Hussain on Friday, according to SaharaReporters.
A source told the news medium that the event is set to take place at 274 Daurawa, Maiduguri Road in Kano.
The source added that the marriage between the underage girl and the Accountant General may likely be consummated before Juma’at prayers on Friday.
“The Accountant General is planning to marry the underage girl on Friday at House D24, Dabah Homes Estate, opposite Tulsi Chanrai Eye Hospital, Oladipo Diya Street, Kukwaba
“At No. 274 Daurawa Maiduguri Road, Kano at the office named Bagudu Kebbi Nigeria Limited. It is adjacent to Tarauni Market Junction.
“You will notice that things and preparation are taking place and I’m suspecting the marriage might hold before Juma’at Prayer or after. They may decide to beat people’s intelligence. His marriage will be consummated tomorrow.”
“This is our late sister’s daughter by name Hussain; she’s just 16, not long that she clocked 16 years old but it’s very unfortunate that a lady called Amina was the one that linked or brought the Accountant-General to our house in order to seek her hand in marriage.
“This, she did, knowing that this is a very young girl, what does that mean? It shows the Accountant General is just after that small girl to take advantage of her youthful age.
The family source added that the Accountant-General had bribed some media organisations they contacted for help and their request to expose his atrocities was, therefore, turned down.
“He went as far as bribing this girl with gold of over N200 million, iPhones, buying cars for her, giving her millions of naira – all to buy her attention. He started meeting different people that he wanted to know the girl’s family; he married the girl, just like that.
“There was no investigation just because he is the Accountant General of the Federation. Why are things happening in this country like this? He even told the girl to go and look for any house of her choice in Abuja, that he is ready to purchase it for her.
“He is spending the government money and every media house we go to report him, he pays them not to air or report the story. Please help us for justice to be done. This girl is just sixteen years old,” the source had added.
