President Muhammadu Buhari’s second daughter, Zahra, yesterday married an oil magnate, Ahmed Indimi, on Friday.
A representative of the Indimi family has revealed the groom’s family paid 12 gold coins — valued at N250,000 — as bride price to the Buhari’s family.
According to Daily Trust, the Sarkin Fulanin Daura, Alhaji Yusuf Sani, gave out Zahra on behalf of
the Buhari family.
Meanwhile, Zahra took to her Instagram account on Friday to describe herself as a “proud Fulani bride” who has a great deal of respect for tradition.
In one picture where she was dressed in a blue traditional wear, Zahra said:
“I respect tradition; it is what makes us unique. For my ‘kamu’ (a ceremony whereby the groom’s family comes and negotiates with the bride’s friends for her release), I insisted on wearing the rich blue traditional Fulani fabric that was worn by generations before us. I am proudly (a) Fulani bride.”
