Earlier, the bride’s relatives told freedom Radio that they are accusing the Hisbah Commandant of Rano LGA of marrying off their daughter without their consent, and that they don’t even know where she is.
But speaking to Freedom Radio, the bride said she is healthy and hearty and that she is living happily with her new husband.
According to her, after realizing that her daughter decided not to marry the man, she felt that both of them cannot lose him and decided to contact his family, adding that she is as beautiful as her daughter.
“I didn’t do it with ignorance, I contacted clerics and they said it is not prohibited. When I contacted him, he agreed but my parents and relatives refused to do the marriage rites. That is why I decided to go to Hisbah and we are happily married now,” she said.
However, her uncle, Abdullahi Musa Rano, said they decided not to allow her to marry the man because she deliberately dissolved her first marriage in order to marry her daughter’s suitor, whom he said is not qualified to be her husband.
“She mounted pressure on her husband to divorce her just to marry the man. We can’t do this shameful thing in our family which is why we refused to join them in marriage. We are not happy with what Hisbah did and we are reporting to bring out our daughter. We want the general commandant and the state government to look into the matter,” he lamented.
When contacted, the Hisbah commandant, Ustaz Nura Rano, said he cannot comment on the matter and that only the state Command of the board has the right to speak on the issue.
Meanwhile, the state general commandant of the Hisbah board, Sheikh Harun Ibn-Sina promised to investigate the matter.
