The Accountant General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris is reportedly planning to marry a 16-year-old girl identified as Hussain on Friday in Kano State.
Although the family of the teenage girl has kicked against the union, SaharaReporters gathered that the wedding will take place today at 274 Daurawa, Maiduguri Road in Kano.
A source that the marriage between the underage girl and the Accountant General, who will turn 61 on November 25, 2021, may likely be consummated before Juma’at prayers this afternnon.
The source said, “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.”
Family Kicks Against Ahmed Idris’s Marriage To Their Girl
It was gathered that the family members of the young girl kicked against her marriage to the AGF who they accused of luring the teenager with millions of naira.
A source told SaharaReporters that Hussain’s family had kicked against the wedding but Idris insisted on marrying her despite being 44 years older than the underage girl.
“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.
“Immediately I heard, I messaged him because when I was working with the then Head of Service, I had the opportunity of having his contact when we met over a serious matter about the country. So I messaged him on WhatsApp regarding his wedding; I sent him my picture, that of my son, my late sister and the daughter, Hussain. He replied that it’s a small world which confirmed the wedding was true,” a top family source had confided in SaharaReporters.
How AGF Ahmed Idris Won The Girl’s Heart
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.
The source said, “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.”
