Habiba Inusa is one of the beneficiaries of the mass wedding in Kano state which held on Sunday, February 26. She was able to hide her pregnancy from her suitor and gave birth a day after the ceremony.
Daily Nigerian reported that Habiba went into labour the next day and gave birth to a baby boy. This shocked the residents of Gangare area of Doguwa Local Government Area as well as the wedding organizers.
Habiba's groom, Babangida allegedly chased she and the baby out of the house because he is not the person responsible for the pregnancy.
Aminu Daurawa, the Commander General of the Kano State Hisbah Board, said the couples were carefully selected, had undergone medical tests and other things before marriage.
When asked to speak on Habiba's case, he said: "We were suddenly asked to provide list of the couples six months after we thoroughly screened them in conjunction with qualified medical personnel of the ministry of Health. Government decided to allow local governments to handle the exercise. So anything can happen."
