SERIOUSLY? Emir Of Katsina Marries 14-Year-Old Kidnapped Christian Girl

The emir of Katsina, HRH. Alhaji Abdulmummuni Kabir Usman is said to have married a 14yrs old Christian girl. On the 16th August, 2016 one Habiba Isiyaku was taken from her school, Government Senior Secondary School Kudun Kankara LGA of Katsina by one Jamilu Lawal of Wawar Kaza in Kankara LGA, Katsina State.

After receiving the news of the abduction of his daughter Habib’s father, Isiyaku Tanko immediately lodge a formal complaint to the Commissioner of Police Katsina state command, urging for swift intervention in the matter.

The Police was later informed by the suspect, Jamilu Lawal after his arrest that the said girl is being kept at the palace of the Emir. 

All efforts by Habibs’s father to seek for the release of his daughter including appealing to the Emir proved abortive.

It has now been confirmed that Habiba has been taken as a wife.


  1. I thought that we have since moved on from this level of insanity!! where are law enforcers? This girl is still a minor. Do we still have law and rule of law in Nigeria.

    Somebody please help me understand if this is still Nigeria or some archaic and ancient fiefdom.

  2. Enter your comment...what is wrong with this shameful emir? can't they think for once

  3. While winning war against boko haram,another system of under age Boko-harassment is rearing it's ugly head.This is unfair..
    . While parents are struggling and want their children to be educated at all costs and few individuals closer to their graves are only interested in marrying under aged by turning the minors into untimely widows.Federal government and ministry of women affairs.

  4. Total wickedness against ones faith...JATAU

  5. Why not their Muslim girls who are many around him?

  6. This is MOST BABARIC. Which law are we practising - Nigerian Constitution or Islamic? You cannot apply Sharia/Islamic principles to justify this abduction of a Christian Girl. Appropriate sanction must be meted to the erring Emir.


Please keep your comments clean always. Thank you!
