The Accountant-General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris has increased his harem by one with his recent secret marriage to a 16 year old girl, Hussain in the ancient city of Kano.

However, the family of the girl are against the marriage especially because of the over 40 year age gap between him and Hussain. They also accused Idris of luring the teenager with millions of naira and making her his fourth wife.

“It is very unfortunate that a lady called Amina was the one that linked or brought the Accountant-General to our house in order to seek her hand in marriage,” a family member of Hussain who is familiar with Idris lamented.

“This, she did, knowing that this is a very young girl, what does that mean? It shows the accountant general is just after that small girl to take advantage of her youthful age.

“Immediately I heard, I messaged him because when I was working with the then Head of Service, I had the opportunity of having his contact when we met over a serious matter about the country.

‘So I messaged him on WhatsApp regarding his wedding; I sent him my picture, that of my son, my late sister and the daughter, Hussain. He replied that it’s a small world which confirmed the wedding was true,” the family source added.

According to SaharaReporters, the family source revealed that the Accountant-General had bribed some media organisations they contacted for help and their request to expose his atrocities was therefore turned down.

“He went as far as bribing this girl with a gold of over N200million, iPhones, buying cars for her, giving her millions of naira – all to buy her attention. He started meeting different people that he wanted to know the girl’s family; he married the girl, just like that.

“There was no investigation just because he is the Accountant General of the Federation. Why are things happening in this country like this? He even told the girl to go and look for any house of her choice in Abuja, that he is ready to purchase it for her.

“He is spending government money and every media house we go to report him, he pays them not to air or report the story. Please help us for justice to be done. This girl is just sixteen years old,” the source added.
