President Muhammadu Buhari’s second daughter, Zahra, married an oil magnate, Ahmed Indimi, on Friday.
The wedding, which garnered lots of media attention, took place at the National Mosque in Abuja.
A representative of the Indimi family, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the groom’s family paid 12 gold coins — valued at N250,000 — as bride price to the Buhari’s family, Daily Trust reported.
It was learnt that the Sarkin Fulanin Daura, Alhaji Yusuf Sani, gave out Zahra on behalf of the Buhari family.
Meanwhile, the bride took to her Instagram account on Friday to share some of her wedding pictures.
In one picture where she was dressed in a blue traditional wear, Zahra described herself as a “proud Fulani bride” who has a great deal of respect for tradition.
“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,” she wrote.
