The marriage of Governor of Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State with Gumsu Sani Abacha has ended in a divorce.
The daughter of the late military head of state Sani Abacha revealed her divorce while replying to a commenter who called her “First Lady” on her X handle @G_sparking on Sunday.
Gumsu had shared her picture with a two-word caption, “Emancipation… Liberation” on Sunday, which drew hundreds of comments, reposts and likes.
An inside source also confirmed to our reporter that the marriage ended “some months ago”.
On April 14, 2021, Mr Buni got married to 45-year-old Gumsu Abacha, and paid 24 gold coins as dowry.
The marriage ceremony took place at the Abuja residence of her elder brother, Mohammed Abacha, with the then Comptroller-General of the Nigerian Customs Service, Hameed Ali; former National Commissioner, Refugees Migrants and Internally Displaced Persons, Bashir Garba-Lado; Kano-based Islamic cleric, Aminu Daurawa; Katsina State governorship candidate in 2023 elections, Yakubu Lado-DanMarke, and many others.
Gumsu was previously married to a Cameroonian billionaire, Bayero Mohamadou, but the 20-year-old marriage crashed in 2020.
