Reason Why New Yobe Governor Marries His Predecessor’s Daughter

Mai Mala Buni, governor of Yobe state, married a new wife 24 hours after taking the oath of office.

The governor’s new bride is Umi Adama, one of the daughters of Ibrahim Gaidam, who handed over to Buni on Wednesday.

The newsmen understands that Umi Adama is currently a student at a university in Saudi Arabia. The wedding took place at Damaturu, capital of the state.

A source told our reporter that Buni was miffed that the plan to keep the wedding out of the public flopped.

“No one can say exactly how this strictly private affair caught the attention of the public,” the source said.

“As an insider, I can tell you that even the representative of the Gaidam family who handed over the girl to her in-laws did not initially know who the groom was. They only told the old man that she was getting married to someone called Yusuf.

“It was yesterday that some people know that the governor also bears Yusuf.”
After the wedding ceremony, Buni was said to have joined his father-in-law at his residence at Tahir guest palace in Kano state.

The governor reportedly spent the night there before moving to Abuja, where another source said he is at the moment.

There are unconfirmed reports that Buni, who already has two wives, plans to make his predecessor’s daughter the first lady of the state.

The governor was said to have recently married a Borno house of reps member who lost reelection bid.

Buni was national secretary of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) when Gaidam declared interest in having him as his successor.

Gaidam wields a great influence in the state. He was elected deputy governor of Yobe in 2007 but succeeded Mamman Bello Ali, the governor, who died in 2009.

Gaidam contested the 2011 governorship election under the All Nigeria Peoples Party in 2011 and won. He was re-elected under APC in 2015. He is currently the senator-elect of Yobe east.

Bukar Abba Ibrahim, a former governor of the state who has been in the senate since 2007, was said to have let go of his reelection ambition in order to pave the way for Gaidam.

Naira Marley, Others, Still In In EFCC Custody

Fast-rising Nigerian musicians, Afeez Fashola (aka Naira Marley) and Omoniyi Temidayo Raphael (aka Zlatan) are still being detained by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The musicians and three others were arrested on Friday.

A highly placed source at the EFCC informed our reporter that forensics investigations are still being conducted on their seized gadgets including laptops and smartphones.

When contacted, EFCC spokesman, Tony Orilade, confirmed that the suspects are still in custody and would be charged to court this week.

He said they are being investigated and are assisting the EFCC officials with investigations.

Zlatan was earlier billed to perform at Burna Boy’s exclusive V.I.P experience with his fans at Terra Kulture, Lagos, on Saturday. His girlfriend pleaded with the EFCC to release her lover on Instagram on Sunday.

They were arrested in connection with an alleged case of internet fraud and money laundering by the EFCC following an early morning raid, at 9, Gbangbola Street, Ikate, Lekki, Lagos on Friday.

The musicians were arrested alongside Tiamiu Abdulrahman Kayode, Adewunmi Adeyanju Moses and Abubakar Musa.

Shortly before he was picked up by the EFCC, Naira Marley told his Instagram followers that he had been arrested 124 times in the United Kingdom, during a live chat.

The singer, who was raised in London, also informed his followers that he would never be caught singing anything else aside from gangster songs.

Based on the Nigerian law which stipulates a maximum of 48 hours detention without a court order, the suspects may either be released on bail on Monday. They may also be charged to court or the EFCC could secure a court order to further detain them. Our EFCC source said the commission is likely to get a remand order to further detain the suspects.
