Emir's Marriage To 14-Year-Old Girl Irreversible - Katsina Emirates Council by Nobody: 12:32am On Oct 14, 2016
THE Katsina Emirate Council on Thursday declared that the marriage between 14-year-old girl, Habiba Isa, and the Emir of Katsina, Alhaji Abdulmumin Usman, was irreversible.

The council said the marriage and Isa’s conversion to Islam were voluntarily and willingly entered into by the girl.

The council told officials of the Katsina State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, who visited Usman in his palace over the issue, that there was no evidence that the 14-year-old girl was forced to act against her wish.

The family of Isiyaku Tanko of Warkaza community in the Kudun Kankara Local Government Area of Katsina State on Wednesday alleged that Usman forcefully abducted their 14-year-old daughter and forced her into marrying him.

She was said to have been abducted on August 16, 2016, by one Jamilu Lawal, an aide of the emir, who worked in the palace. She was converted to Islam and held incommunicado.

Isa is expected to clock 15 years on Saturday, October 15, 2016, and would have resumed school for the new academic term, but for her abduction.

She was said to have passed her Junior Secondary School Certificate Examination and was expected to start Senior Secondary School.

The incident was blown open when the father of the victim lodged a complaint with Stefanos Foundation, a humanitarian civil rights organisation, which took over the matter.

Isa was allowed to appear before CAN officials and others in the palace on Thursday, and was asked three questions by the Kaora Katsina, Alhaji Nuhu Abdulkadir, on behalf of the emirate council.

She was asked whether she was forcefully converted to Islam, to which she replied no.

She was also asked whether the emirate council or any other person forced her into the marriage with the emir, to which she also answered no.

The third question was whether by the time she met her husband, she was already experiencing menstrual period, to which she answered yes.

The Kaora Katsina said, “The three questions are in line with the dictates of the Islamic religion. Since Isa has voluntarily answered the three questions in our presence, there is no going back on her marriage.”

Abdulkadir explained that in as much as the emirate council would not want to be involved in the controversy surrounding the marriage, the palace of the emir was open to all Nigerians irrespective of religion and tribe.

A letter purportedly written by Isa’s father was read to the gathering, apologising to the emirate council for any embarrassment the issue might have caused it (the council).

The CAN Chairman for Katsina State, Very Rev. Nelson Ugochukwu, however, told the emirate council that Isa’s marriage did not have the consent of her parents, who he said, were crying for justice in Abuja.

The CAN leader said the association was not in support of the marriage and her conversion to Islam.

He said, “This girl (Isa) standing before us is 14 years. She is supposed to be in school and not given out in marriage.

“We are not pleased and we demand justice. Her parents are in Abuja, crying for justice. In my religion, you cannot give out any lady in marriage without the consent of her parents. This marriage does not have the consent of this little girl’s parent. The parents are not happy with what has happened.

“As the CAN chairman in Katsina, I am the father of all Christians in the state. Our people are not happy. The parents told me that the girl is 14 years. She is supposed to be in school. I want justice to be done in this matter. I want the emirate to look into the matter. To us, the girl is still a Christian.”

Yess irreversible, hypocrisy is when eastners celebrate a 14 year old girl for doing illigal sex and at the same time blaming we muslims for marrying up our 14 year old. After all they are baby factory products, a baby is just worth N20,000 in their region.

It's so unfortunate we are in the same country with paedophiles who has no regard for human dignity.


I wonder, what's the essence having Christian leaders who can't fight for their helpless members/children. Bunch of useless fake / political highwaymen forming men of God whilst they are merely god of men.

Waiting for you to quote that Quran verse or forever take your lies somewhere.

My question is very straight forward. Quran verse I said not Hadith? Don't deviate.

Even in the Hadith He married her @9 not 6. He was engaged to her @6. And married her when she attains puberty @9.

Shameless liar.

Whats the difference between ages nine and six?
Can you give out your daughter's hand in marriage at a tender age of nine, and lastly why do these islamic religious leaders and monarchs like getting married to underaged girls? it is obvious that they are following in the footsteps of someone who we both know.
Your guess is as good as mine.

It's only the Christian community / leaders that can help put a stop to these nonsense but as long as there's no common front to achieve that then the trend will continue.

But sadly influential Christians always turn blind eyes to such kidnappings, forceful conversions and marriages.

I think it is high time the BBOG campaign, extend their scope to cover young Christian girls, caught, brainwashed and converted to Islam, then married off to emirs or emirate council members.

Were they expecting the young girl to say she was forced to convert or marry him? This has to stop!

Also, am waiting to see what Aisha Buhari and Aisha Alhassan will do about this.

You are right, the silence of influential Christians emboldens these paedophiles hiding under religion! Am not sure if he National body of CAN has released a statement stating their position and demand for the return of the girl or else the Emirate will be sued for abduction, forceful conversion to islam and marriage to a minor without the consent of her parents.

Well, blame goes to these southwest people who still kick against Biafra.
A 14 years old girl hardly knows her left from her right.

How many constitutions exist for Nigeria by the way?

Far northern Nigeria has since adopted Islamic Sharia Criminal laws and practices like taking a 14 years old girl for housewife.

Problem is that our southwest bros don't understand that far north Nigeria wants to exist in its own lslamic territory - country - without distractions from rest of Nigeria. Only crude oil in the Niger delta binds far north to Nigeria.

As Biafrans kick to also live in their own country the way its population want, some of the Southwest people constitute the greatest critics of Biafra agitation.

Theological research has it that Mary gave birth to Jesus at the age of 15.

This is not heresy. Ask and source for knowledge. Did the Emir do something wrong, Yes he did, in a civil society as ours such things shouldn't be happening

These same set of hypocrites ban shiite sect for disturbing peace but don't can't see the insanity the their version of Islam practice. These guys are backwards I wonder when they'll ban themselves. You know a great majority of people in this region are ok with pedophilia. The Emire would hide his shame if he thought there would be repercussions.

If the headline read Emire caught in gay scandal the muslims would be ready to decapitate him. Since its just kidnaping, pedophilia and forced conversation perfectly ok in their society.
