In what appeared to be an unprecedented nuptial bond, an aged couple, Muhammad Liti and Fatima Malam have tied the knot after an eight-month courtship in Kano State.
According to a report by the Dala FM, monitored by the DAILY NIGERIAN on Monday in Kano, the wedding took place on Sunday night at Kan Fako area of Dorayi town in Gwale local government area of the state.
Mr Liti paid a bride price of N10,000 to his heartthrob who fries Kosai and Wainar Rogo in the area.
According to the report, the couple threw a colourful ceremony as families and friends as well as hundreds of residents trooped to the venue to witness the occasion.
The report noted that the octogenarian, after wearing a make-up and dressing in bridal attire, danced well to the music played during the ceremony.
The bridegroom, who expressed happiness on finding a life partner, said the marriage was contracted based on true love.
He added that the duo played out a modern love game and would make a lovely couple.
On her part, the bride said she would be an obedient wife to her groom, even though he is eight years younger than her.
“My happiness today is equal to that of a pilgrim travelling to Mecca. I am in a happy mood because I have found the love of my love.
“I promise to be obedient to him.
“We shall live as husband and wife and do whatever married couples do, not only to be bringing him water or taking water to the toilet for him.
“I will be cooking him delicious food,” she promised.
