It was a shocking sight to behold in Niger State, when a 70 yer-old man identified as Yakubu Chanji, married a teenager, who is 15-year-old.
It was gathered that the wedding Fatiha took place on Monday in Lapai, Niger State, with family and friends in attendance.
Mr Chanji, also known as Nafsi-Nafsi in Minna city, earned the sobriquet “Chanji” for his frequent divorces and replacement of wives.
An eye-witness reporter who clamied anonymous said: “He is a philanthropist in Kwangila area of Minna. He has contributed immensely to the community, especially the building of the community mosque.
“We call him Chanji because he regularly ‘changes’ wives. In my knowledge, he married at least 12 times, but other people say it could be up to 20 times.
“What we know is that he always keeps four wives in his house. Once he divorces one, or one of them dies, he immediately picks a replacement.”
