In 2013, former governor of Zamfara State, Senator Ahmed Sani Yerima married an Egyptian girl reported to be 13 years old then.
In an interview with Daily Trust, Yerima said his wife was not as young as 13-years-old but refused to give her age, saying it was an invasion of her privacy.
As governor of Zamfara state, Yerima introduced the strict enforcement of Islamic law, sharia along with 11 other northern states in 2000.
