EXCLUSIVE: Emir Ado Bayero’s mistress, ‘abandoned’ by late monarch’s family, threatens suicide

Late Emir of Kano, Ado Bayero

“I have no shelter over my head, my children hardly eat and they are not even in school like their peers,” the 48-year-old woman lamented.

Sullen and distraught, and her voice trembling, Hauwa Momoh, despite her affiliation with two royal families, appears to be experiencing hell. She believes the suffering had now intensified to a level she can no longer bear.

Besides being the daughter of a former senior traditional ruler in Edo State, the Otaru of Auchi, Ms. Momoh was also the mistress of the immediate past Emir of Kano, Ado Bayero, for nearly three decades, in a lengthy but secret affair with one of Nigeria’s most influential traditional rulers.

With four wives already – maximum for a Muslim man – Mr. Bayero also maintained intimate relationship with a number of other women not married to him, Ms. Momoh told PREMIUM TIMES recently.

She said at least 16 of the women were known, and she was one of the lot.

Her affair, lasting 30 years, yielded two children, and the emir accepted and took care of them until his death in June, Ms. Momoh said.

Now she said she is prepared to end her life and her children’s after the emir’s family allegedly left her and her children homeless, and shut off all avenues of support she hitherto received for herself and children.

Ms. Momoh has been in touch with PREMIUM TIMES for weeks, asking this paper to help prevail on late Ado Bayero’s family to assist her children. She describes the family as very wealthy and spoke of the late emir as a kind, generous and pleasant man who provided all she needed and gave her family the best of treatments while he was alive.

She said since the Emir died, life has been hellish for her and her children. She begs to feed herself and children today, and has no support or shelter, she said.

After PREMIUM TIMES began investigating her claim, reaching out to the late emir’s family, Ms. Momoh told this paper she was sent N250, 000 from Kano with a request to stay off the media. The money lasted two days as it could not sustain the lifestyle set for her by the emir while alive, she said.

Ms. Momoh said she was promised another N2 million as settlement, but she has dismissed that as too meagre, given her current needs, taste and the family’s wealth.

Ms Momoh wouldn’t say why she has never worked to earn money, and why she depended entirely on the late Emir for handouts for three decades.

She also did not say why she did not return to school after she gave birth to her daughter.

She only said Emir Bayero kept promising to help her set up a business until he took ill and passed away.

Ado Bayero’s family declined to speak formally to PREMIUM TIMES on the case, despite repeated requests for comments and clarifications. Our reporters telephoned, and sent them text messages for weeks, but they did not respond. We also got high-level sources in the Kano Emirate to appeal to them to speak to this newspaper on the matter. At some points, they promised to get in touch, but failed to do so.

University Affair

As the Emir of Kano for more than 50 years, Ado Bayero was only third to the Sultan of Sokoto and the Emir of Gwandu in prominence in the perking order of northern Nigeria’s traditional rulers. He was also one of Nigeria’s most influential personalities.

Beyond his royal and religious influence, Ado Bayero was also an astute businessman with investments spanning almost all sectors of the Nigerian economy and even beyond, his associates say. He is believed to have left behind a lot of wealth.

He left behind at least four wives, 60 children and at least 16 concubines, Ms. Momoh told PREMIUM TIMES.

Ms. Momoh’s relationship with Emir Bayero began in 1984. Her father, the late Otaru of Auchi, Ahmed Guruza Momoh, was Mr. Bayero’s friend, Ms. Momoh said.

She said the Kano Emir began to date her when her father requested the late Emir Bayero to help her secure admission into Bayero University Kano [BUK], named after the emir himself.

“The relationship started back as 1984 when my father referred me to him, to help me gain admission into BUK. I have always wanted to study in BUK,” Ms. Momoh told PREMIUM TIMES, her voice burdened.

But instead of an admission into BUK, Ms. Momoh became pregnant for the Emir in 1986.

“I found out I was pregnant when in 1986 I was in London, and as I got back I told him I was pregnant for him, he then said we will get married after I put to bed because Islamically it’s wrong to marry someone who is pregnant, ” she narrated.

Ms. Momoh travelled back to Auchi to break the news to her father. The shocked chief sent her back to the emir, and vowed she would not be allowed to have her baby in his house without marriage.

Fifteen years later, a second child, a boy, arrived. She did not return to school and appears never to have been in any gainful employment.

Ms. Momoh said at all times, they were all well taken care of by the late emir.

“I stayed in Kano for 32 years, the Emir was very nice to me while he was alive, he took care of me and our two children, and he gave us money, he was indeed a nice man before he died,” she said.

After the emir took ill, communication slowed between him and his mistress. Soon, Ms. Momoh’s children became sick and would not respond to treatment, forcing their mother to relocate to Lagos, she said.

“I was not able to see the Emir for one year as he fell ill, at the same time my children were also sick so I had to relocate to Lagos for further and better treatment. I and my children stayed in Lagos in my friends place till my children got better,” she explained.

Two weeks before Mr. Bayero died, Ms. Momoh travelled to see him in Kano. While there, she said she realized her home in Kano had been vandalized and all her properties were stolen, leaving the house empty.

When she eventually met the emir, the traditional ruler, she said, promised to take care of her and children, promised them shelter and directed one of his sons, Nasir, to ensure that was done.

“Nasir knew us very well. In fact, he used to come and give us money for upkeep when his father was alive,” Ms. Momoh explained.

That warm relationship between her and Nasir broke down after the emir’s death.

Now, Ms. Momoh blames Nasir and another of the late emir’s son, Aminu, for her troubles, saying they refused to carry out their father’s directive.

As her suffering and that of her children worsened, she said she met Nasir on several occassions, to convey to him how desperate she needed help. The two sons promised to get back to her, but never did.

Ms. Momoh said today her children are no longer in school, as they roam the country looking for shelter. She is currently in Abuja squatting with a friend and struggling to survive.

“I almost slept at the central Mosque in Abuja, I have no savings, I have no roof over my head, my first daughter is due for the university but she is with me, my second son has been out of school for over a year now. We find it very difficult to eat. And all this became worse after the Emir died,” She explained.

On Friday, after turning down the N2million she was offered, Ms. Momoh said she and her children had agreed to commit suicide if no help came by the weekend.

“Just in case we don’t make it to Monday, tell our story,” she urged PREMIUM TIMES.

    Shame unto the Emirs children and their mind of poverty. Surely Ado Bayero is not poor and I am sure it will not cost them much to accept those children as their brothers and take care of them. Remember, we take of those we never know just for God sake. Now your reputation and respect is not only down but that of your respected father. I advice them to settle their step mother with a reasonable amount to at least can buy a house, train the children and sustain her life. Or she should go to court to embrass your father more. I advice her to hide because they may kill her. Royalty has nothing to do with religion and all African traditional institutions has this kind of scandals allowed by customs not religion. For instance King masawati the great of Swaziland has over 100 wives. It is a tradition that is unethical and not religion in anyway.

    • astonish

      Go to court for what? Concubines right? I wonder why she hasn’t been working. Her best bet is to plead with them to give her enough money to set up a business of her own. She is still busy talking about the standard that was set for her, wake up woman!

      • What can we really do to change the following situations in Nigeria? I doubt if
        these comments reach those they are intended for. I don’t want my
        comments to be in vain.
        Why is Nigeria allowing Sharia in Northern Nigeria? That’s the LICENSE that
        opens the gate for those who are faithful to Qur’an and Hadith to
        establish Ummah al-Islamiyah in Nigeria and EXPAND SHARIA.

        Concerning “touch not the anointed”, please send the following IMPORTANT MESSAGE
        to all who can do something about it:

        Like the U.K. Charity Commission, Nigeria needs to start prosecuting
        Religious Fraudsters. Also, Nigerian Officials must stop mixing Government with Religion

      • walejohnson

        This is a pathetic story. Nigerians women, either educated, illiterates, semi-illiterates believe that a man should cater or look after them. This belief has to stop. Relationship should be on a 50:50 basis. Dont fall in love to a man with the view that she will take care of you. I wonder why the father in Edo should turn his back to his daughter after all he introduced his daughter to the Emir. Let us start showing that we are human in Nigeria and we have feelings. With churches and mosques on every street in Lagos, let us save this woman and children.

  • yemi

    thank you mistress

  • Lanre

    Rubbish story. For a moment, I thought they were referring to Sanusi’s mistress. Then I saw it was Bayero. Part of the corruption undermining Nigeria. The reason why the country will never see progress. The other day, I was discussing with a Yoruba friend and I told him that when the Yoruba Revolution occurs, the traditional rulers will be responsible for their own keep. No public funds will be used to maintain them. He shouted on me, calling me all sorts of names. The Traditional Rulers are human. They use their influence and money from corrupt public officers to marry careless, greedy, young girls who want the easy life. Among other shenanigans.They are a waste. However, for the benefit of keeping our culture, we will keep them as tourist enclaves.

    • amazing2012

      Lanre you are wonderful !

      • Lanre

        Really? Well, thank you.

    • Wähala

      “we will keep them as tourist enclaves”…I would say tourist attraction. Tourists do not live in enclaves, they visit them, snap pictures and move on. Sha, Hahaha chai… funny line!

  • Polycarp

    I’m offering you a very strong rope,nonsense!

  • amazing2012

    Lanre, she is not going to court to win a case but to disgrace the family morally.
    And law itself has no rule, even a prostitute can win a case on “her” property!

  • Mayo

    A life stolen, close your legs to married men. Pathetic

  • GbemigaO

    Kept woman. Smh! Does she expects the man doling out money to her to live forever ?


    Did I hear u say u were given N200,000 and the money did nt lasted two days? I pity u, no wonder u dated a wealthy emir for 38 years n u could nt set up any business on ur own. U were using ur ten fingers to eat abi when the emir was showering u wit money. Thank God u mentioned that the emir was nice n taking good care of u bt u could nt use ur head that he is settling u. Well, I would still plead with the emir’s children to take care of their blood brother n sister.

      Blood bother and Sister can as well turn almanjeri. It is acceptable in the Fulani tradition.

      Biko leave them with their life and culture

  • Dr Pat Kolawole Awosan

    This type of news should not be the front-page top news-item by Premium Times as this type of news are of no good interest to the development of Nigeria infrastructure,social-economic priority of the citizens and provision of security of lives and properties of Nigerian people.Late Ado Bayero’s mistress-welfare-not his wives or children, should not be of importance to Nigerian public

  • Oleku

    In Islam this is no offence–Mohammed had numerous concubines and child bride Aisha–the emir is only following his foot steps–women are like a commodity in Islam–in Saudi a woman is not allowed to go out without a male excort–in Sudan if a woman stare at any man who is not her husband or exchange even hi with him she’s stoned to death–fatwa if disobeyed–the emir was a good man–he followed the Quran to the letter–in Quran women are understood to be lesser humans–they can’t worship on same day with the Mohammedans–in Islam, fair is foul and foul is fair. Ms Momoh should go lick her wounds

    • bib

      You always talk bad about a religion you know nothing about. This indeed makes you just ‘I am also a Christian ‘. I am sure you don’t know what the Christian religion also professes.

    • amazing2012

      OLEKU is not Islam, you just want to insult Muslims, but let me ask you if the followings is also Christianity:
      1. Rev. Njoh Kenya ask ladies to removed their pants in church for Jesus to enter them.
      2. Rev. Ngwu In Enugu who marries 20 of his church member, impregnates them and say is God that ask him to do so.
      3. Catholics abuse of minors in hundreds.
      4. Anglicans fucking buttock of men and ordain gays as priests.
      5. Rev. King Ajao estate asking ladies to such his dick.
      6. Pastor Chris having concubines from his church, case in court.
      7. Naked Church in USA, where members attend service naked.
      You see, you can understand that the attitudes of this men cannot be categorical to Christianity it’s simply their personal desire not a God. Do not make comment to confirm your ignorance, please.

      • Otile

        You are a propagandist. You always have something to say to make a good person look bad, Nobody knows anything about the sins you listed here. Don’t make my brother Oleku comment on something he knows nothing about.

      • u s man

        @ amazing. May God bless you, u v said it all. Why is it that if muslims commits a crime, the will relate it to Islam. What about pastor Chris & orijafor?

      • the truth

        U are now indirectly insulting our intelligence.stop

        • amazing2012

          Stop saying the truth. ? Truth shall set you free ! If what I am saying is not true revert it, probe it !

    • amazing2012

      OLEKU, It seem you are a blind illiterate, please quote where in the Quran or bible that this attitude is supported !

      • Otile

        The man was a good Muslim, and he acted accordingly, you know it too. My brother Oleku should not quote anything for you, lest you contradict him with your own version of Taliban Qu-ran, besides he is not a Muslim like you.

        • amazing2012

          OTILE this is where you got it wrong I am a born again Christian
          , who believe in truth which shall set us free. Truth is one and that is Jesus Christ. He never condemn people because he want his light to shine, rather he forgive and pray for people salvation. The Christianity of today, the one you and Oleku preach is that of hate and blame believing is through that your faith will look good. Bible warned us on condemning and judging people. I give example not to condemn but solicits your prayers to them. To your believe is only a non Christian that will say true about Christianity even if something is wrong, to you these people i mentioned are Christianity not God or begotten son, to you this is shame that should not be told. Is only when you know who you are you can talk to someone about himself. Most of us Christians get the religion into disgrace because almost everybody can open his mouth to confirm ignorance. To you Christianity in practice is to have the mouth and mandate to destroy, black mail, hate and condemn others. But with this attitude how they accept Christ ? Remember we are pagans when the light come to us, they missionaries did not hate us or see us as evil but now our attitude is keeping thousands from understand Christ, more so to accept him.

          • Otile

            When were the sins you listed here committed?

          • amazing2012

            Google all. Accept if you want to confirm another ignorance of news or as usual you want to claim innocence and shamefully try to cover the truth. Then that of Muslims that you cite as examples, when were the sins committed ? Have you witness that ?

          • Otile

            You sound like a devout Muslim to me. See how you are defending Islam and asking me when did Muslims commit their sins. I will mention a few that none can doubt. Last year the Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido slept with Hajiya Yero in an expensive hotes in Eko, the record is still there. The sin is called adultery or zinna in Islam.. In april this year Boko Muslims forcefully took 276 school girls to sleep with, is that right? Do you still want me to say more?

          • amazing2012

            If sunusi and Boko haram are good example of moral representation of Muslims, then we Christians should bury ourselves in shame. Because very few of us ever marry as a virgin from both of the spouse. Yes we have daughters of Abraham but very, very few. Beside the crime of terrorist which can also be studied, morality is not in Christianity. We go against what our bible says as moral direction. For instance: ask Christians to stop eating swine, which is level as dirty animal and warned to touch or asks Christians to stop drinking alcohol ( some may even tell you is it not a sin because Christ chae water to wine) now wine have become Guilder ! Or ask them what is honesty, integrity etc. my faith today is that of believing not practicing, believing in prosperity, in juju and miracle, etc

          • Otile

            Stop bashing Chrstianity. Because of your blasphemy I may not respond to you again. Clean up your thoughts, the devil is very powerful

          • amazing2012

            Can you compare 275 girls with thousands abuse by Catholic priests ? For many years abusing underage between 5-13Years ? Or Anglican priests committing sodomy with children ? ordained gay priests and wed gays in the house of God ?
            Shekau is not and never once become a leader of Muslims. He is just a leader of prostrated people taking arms and supported by the government to kill people just life Joseph Kone of Lord resistance army of Uganda, who kill, rape and destroy in the name of Christ or a Christian knight Anders Breivik of Norway who also kill 85 youths at a beach. Try to know the difference between God, religion and leadership of faith, this will help you to save yourself from fake men of God and do justice to others.

        • amazing2012

          OLEKU, has nothing to quote and never make reference, Oleku is just fortunate to get internet from his neighbor’s house in Ajasha to connect and disturb people. You don’t need someone to ask you for probe if you have one. Check all his comments ! All I asked is to get a quote from the bible that support his points. am I wrong here ! He is speaking as if he defending his faith. But he don’t know even himself !!

        Just to quickly and urgently correct you,JESUS is the Son of GOD and neither a prophet nor ‘prophet of allaah’. Thank you

        • Hamisu

          Did the real Bible in Hebrew say “Jesus is The God?”
          Many churches today claim the Bible says, “Yes”. But most Bible scholars say, “No”

          What else did they say? What do real Bible scholars and experts tell us about the ancient manuscripts?

          Examine the words for yourself and you decide –

          Part 1 – How did Jesus’ people know him?
          So if the followers of Jesus (peace be upon him) considered God to be their “Father,” then how did they regard Jesus? To answer this let us read together:
          “And when he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet.”
          Matthew 14:5 (compare with Matthew 21:26)
          “And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.”
          Matthew 21:11
          “But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet.”
          Matthew 21:46
          “And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people:”
          Luke 24:19
          “The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.”
          John 4:19
          “Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.”
          John 6:14
          “Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.”
          John 7:40
          Indeed, how did Jesus himself describe himself? Let us read:
          “Nevertheless I (Jesus) must walk to day, and to morrow, and the [day] following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.”
          Luke 13:33
          And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house.
          Matthew 13:57

          What do Muslims say about this? What is in the Speech of Allah (Quran)? Read for yourself…

          Total agreement is found in the noble Qur’an:
          “And when Jesus son of Mary said: O Children of Israel! Verily! I am the messenger of Allah unto you, confirming that which was [revealed] before me in the Torah”
          The noble Qur’an, Al-Saf (61):6

          • Psalm 35

            What do you mean by ‘real Bible’ and Christian ‘scholars’? My friend, we true Christians,
            the true followers of Christ who strive continuously to know Him day in day out
            are not swayed by what ‘scholars’ may or may not have to say, the good book
            teaches us that so many will go out teaching and deceiving in His name, and in
            such we must test the spirits. (2 Peter 2:1. “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction”). Now please see 1 John 4:1, “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether
            they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world”

            The truth about the Christian faith is in the Bible and not in any ‘ancient manuscripts’. Can
            you kindly point or name on of this scholars that says ‘no’ to JESUS being
            Lord, if you can point them to me and were they were quoted to make this
            assertions then I will give you just 10 reasons why they are false
            anti-Christs, Matt 7:16 says “Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather
            grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?”

            Straight to the points you raised. You shot yourself in the foot by constantly referring to
            the scholars and experts and their ancient manuscripts but you never quoted
            their manuscripts instead you have quoted the same Bible which you insinuate
            the scholars disagree with. Let me assure you that any teachings from any ‘manuscripts’
            aside the Bible is false and null and void.

            You have quoted specific passages out of context, how convenient for people seeking to
            create confusion or mischief. That is NOT how to read or reference the Bible,
            if you must quote the Bible, you must start from the preceding verses so that
            the truth of the issue being analysed can be properly captured. The horse goes
            before the cart hence emphasis must always be placed on the build up to the
            verse you have mentioned.

            You have quoted specific Bible passages to buttress your ‘point’, but the Bible
            objectively allowed these verses to confirm a precedent guiding up to the
            confirmation of JESUS as Son and Lord, this is another source of comfort in the
            great potency of the good book. You quoted verses in Matthew, Luke, John but
            one thing you failed to see is what they all have in common which is that they
            report the people’s worldly perspective of who Christ was, based on miracles
            they saw and based on their natural convictions. Can you now hold up the
            perspectives of worldly people as proof that the Bible supports such? Your
            reference to Luke 13:33 and Matthew 13:57 is to the least clever by half, if
            you read those verses well you will see that JESUS was only alluding to human
            proverbs of the time which in itself was not an agreement that Himself was a
            prophet, it has been shown several times in the Bible that JESUS used native
            quotes or proverbs of the people verbatim to stress points hence make it
            easily understandable by the natives.

            The Bible (theword of GOD) and JESUS are one, they are inseparable hence the Bible can never
            assert or go against the fact that JESUS is Lord and the Son of the most high
            GOD. I have also noticed you conveniently failed to quote other instinctive
            passages that exalt JESUS as the Son of GOD. I will happily reproduce them
            below and hope you can read them and understand that the teachings of the Bible
            are not understood by mindsets watered down by worldly or mischievous unction’s
            but by those gifted by the Holy Spirit with a sincere desire to know the LORD.

            The revelation of JESUS as Son of GOD; as revealed in the Bible.

            Matthew 1:23 – “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they
            shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”

            Isaiah 9:6 – For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son
            is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be
            called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince
            of Peace.

            Isaiah 43:10,11 – “You are My witnesses,” says the
            Lord, “And My servant whom I have chosen, That you may know and believe Me, and
            understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, Nor
            shall there be after Me. I, even I, am the Lord, and besides Me there
            is no Savior.”

            Revelation 1:17-18; Revelation 2:8 – (Jesus is the First and the Last)

            Isaiah 44:6 – (God is the Redeemer)

            2 Peter 1:1 (Jesus is the Redeemer) – “To those who
            have obtained like precious faith with us by the righteousness of our God
            and Savior Jesus Christ”

            Isaiah 44:24 – (God created the world by His self

            John 1:3; Colossians 1:16 – (Jesus made all things)

            John 1:1 – In the beginning was the Word, and the Word

            John 5:17,18 – “My Father has been working until now,
            and I have been working.” Therefore the Jews sought to kill Him, because He not
            only broke the Sabbath, but also said that God was His Father, making Himself
            equal with God.

            John 5:23 – that all should honor the Son just as they
            honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who

            John 10:30-33 – Jesus answered them, “I and My
            Father are one.” Then the Jews took up stones again to stone Him. Jesus
            answered them, “Many good works I have shown you from My Father. For which of
            those works do you stone Me?” The Jews answered Him, saying, “For a good work
            we do not stone You, but for blasphemy, and because You, being a Man, make
            Yourself God.”

            John 14:6-7 – Jesus said to him, “I AM the way, the

            seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?”

            form of a bond-servant, and coming in the likeness of men.

            1 Timothy 3:16 – And without controversy great is the
            mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, Justified in

            Revelation 1:8 – “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the
            Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come,
            the Almighty.”

            Revelation 22:13 – “I AM the Alpha and the Omega, the

            Hebrews 2:17,18 – “Therefore, in all things He had to
            be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest
            in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.
            For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who
            are tempted.”

            Hebrews 4:15,16 – “For we do not have a High Priest who
            cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are,
            yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we
            may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”

            1 Peter 2:24 – “who Himself bore our sins in His own
            body on the tree, that we having died to sins, might live for righteousness –
            by whose stripes you were healed.”

            He went from sovereignty to shame and from deity to death? Why!? For you.

            John 15:13 – “Greater love has no one than this, than
            to lay down one’s life for his friends.”

            Romans 5:8 – “But God demonstrates His own love toward
            us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

            Now and very importantly, what was Peter’s confession of Christ ? See Matthew 16:13-17

            “13. When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples,
            saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?”

            14. So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others
            Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”

            15. He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”

            16. Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

            17. Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for
            flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My
            Father who is in heaven”

            And on your last paragraph on what Muslims have to say about JESUS, I can assure you that
            it is of no importance to what we Christians believe just like you Muslims
            deliberately find it hard to accept our appreciation of JESUS as our Lord and Saviour.

            The statement you have quoted and attributed to JESUS in the Koran is false, the Koran cannot ascribe to JESUS what the Bible doesn’t. As long as it is not stated in the Holy Bible, any other statement ascribed to JESUS is false hence again null and void. JESUS is the Son of the
            Almighty GOD, He never made mention of Allah. Infact JESUS lived before
            Muhammed who conceptualized Allah. On His death on the cross, JESUS declared it
            is finished hence anything ascribed to Him after that is of no consequence.

            May the good LORD touch your heart.

This clearly shows that, punishment by killing is allowed even in the Bible.

      Why is Nigeria allowing Sharia in Northern Nigeria? That’s the LICENSE that

      Like the U.K. Charity Commission, Nigeria needs to start prosecuting

  • Kuku

    Nonsense! U were a mistress for over 30 years and u couldn’t be productive? I don’t believe ur story. Many things don’t add up. One, ur daughter whom u said was born in 1986 is ready for University? What’s she been doing all this while? My son born the same year has a master’s degree, finished NYSC and has been job hunting for two years now! Go get a life woman, this is a story,not true!

  • Otile

    I thought Nigerians were kind people. The commentators here who usually speak for Nigerian people showed no sympathy at Ms Momoh and her needy children. God bless you my brother Oleku, you are the only person with good understanding and care.

    One cruel commentator went as far as to offer her a short rope to hand herself. Others were calling her names and casting aspersions. This is a pity because the late Sultan was a good man. If he was alive today this woman and her children would not be endangered in affluent Kano City and Eko.

    Good people should appeal to Sanusi to adopt her and her needy children. Nobody has anything to gain by her contemplated suicide and possible death.

  • Frank Bassey

    We need more serious news than this morally hollow story which is common with people of that region and religion.

    • s musa

      @ Frank what has that got to do with region and religion, people from your region are more into this kind of adulterous life than people from region where the emir come from.

  • ND

    It’s an irony that a religious man should be going against the tenets of his religion to commit adultery. The late emir was well loved but this weak side of him shows he’s human after all. The lady is purely on a blackmail mission. So used to easy life and money. The only work she had known is to spread her leg of the emir to enter. 5 mins of work and pleasure each day. So shameful for a school drop out

    Premium Times shouldn’t be carrying this kind of City People or Linda Ikeji story. Abegy

    • Mohammed

      The emir was known to be a serial adulterer, he was attacked one time in the Kano central mosque by someone for impregnanting his two daughters. Adultery and insest are the hallmarks of the Kano royal family. Nasir, Ado Bayero’s eldest son was caught screwing his sister by one of his wives. Ado Bayero and his children both men and and women are cursed with adultery. They have no scruples when it comes to sex.

  • Wähala

    @Amina Mohammed, Premium Times…
    This sounds like “Saloon Journalism” to a discerning mind. For all intents and good purposes, this is a lop-sided story at best. This reporter made no efforts to contact the woman’s family to at least verify she’s who she claims she is. Since the Kano Emirate abandoned her, how about her own royal fathers? If her claim that she was sent N250,000 which she blew in 2days, why didn’t this reporter ask how and on what given her predicament? Declining a purported “settlement” offer of N2million is the fake crown jewel in her story, N2million is enough to begin life afresh in a country where Govt. cannot afford N18,000 minimum wage. To me, Ms. Momoh is an old hooker and a gold digger trying to blackmail the Emirate. Nobody gave/offered her any money, she should take a DNA test to prove her silly story or get arrested for extortion. This watery story makes no sense since she did not provide just one evidence to support her claims about a deceased royalty… whatever happened to, “Rest in Peace” ?? In Nigeria, even the dead are not immune to scam artiste and generator noise… Nonsense!

  • UOU

    This story has many sides, disheartening yet riddled with suspiciousness. Ms Momoh has my sympathy is her story is true but my first concern is that, Ms Momoh is also from a royal (assumed wealthy) family, they can help if it comes to the worst, not suicide. Ms Momoh took got pregnant and had her first child in 1986, the child should be adult by now, whats the 1986 child doing now, supposedly Late Emir is as good as Ms Momoh alludes, the 1986 child may have gone to the best schools and gainfully employed now. Another paradox is, how many children does Ms Momoh has for the Late Emir, their ages also how old is Ms Momoh? I think this reporter and newspaper is extending their lack of investigative propaganda to another level, from cheap politics to petty semi-social. Ok, did Premium Times find out from Nasir the exact positions before mentioning the man’s name (this is litigation opportunities here for Nasir for malicious whatever). This is what we are saying about certain people who have been in government for decades without making efforts to empower their subjects else how can you keep a woman (16 mistresses + 4 wives) without work, quarantined just for the sake of pleasure, who is even sure the late insatiable Emir is the father of all those children and what manner of satisfactions can a right thinking man be seeking beyond 4 women up to the age the Late emir joined his ancestors. This is possible because of cheap money, available elsewhere, wealth that were never earned but coerced and looted by a wicked generation against an innocent generation. In my place, you cannot marry and keep her from working for more than 5years or most 10years after marriage, ( talk less a mistress who you don’t have full control of,) where as, she cannot work, you must engage her with some potentially earnings vocations no matter how small because tomorrow is pregnant, even in the olden days when marrying many women were fashionable, the purposes was not for lust+pleasure but to have a large home, more hands in the farm and better life.. What of if the late wealthy good Emir did not die but separated from the Ms Momoh, how would she survive since she is depending on handouts. I have my doubt if Ms Momoh is not saying all these for pecuniary reasons, including that the late emir was good man so that she will get more sympathy, its very likely she would not say this if the late emir is alive today, very seemingly they were not in good terms before the poor soul passed on. This is mixture of, misplaced priorities, poverty of ideas, missed luck and failures on the part of that generation that produced the late Emir, they ate their own cake and the cake of the next generations, Ms Momoh may have been my age mate and now she does not have a future even if she has enjoyed in the past, nothing lasts forever. I thought as a royal product, Ms Momoh would have known better but if she decides to take her life and that of her children (fallacy) today, it is within her living rights but against her fundamental human rights, contemplating such is an offence on its own however if she goes ahead to do that, the world would not stop, life goes on, its up to her. Ms Momoh is educated to the extent of high school way back in the 80’s,Ms Momoh has failed herself by staying idle since then, being in active in everything except in bed, now that the late lover boy is gone, what would she do now? Ms Momoh story look more like a blackmail or “ABEG”

  • NazirJos

    I think no one is buying this cheap lie. As far as I’m concern, if this story were truth, then how about the children. If the late Emir REALLY took good care and “was very nice” with this woman and her children, then the first child at almost 28 by the time the emir died should have finished university. Why this report didn’t interview at least one of the children?
    Also the whole report featured as if the scenario happened just like four years ago. It doesn’t make sense or fit to brains. I think this kind stories should not be allowed to publish by reputable new paper like Premiumtimes.

  • NazirJos

    Also the report should have shown her picture, not the late Emir’s.

  • Max

    250,000 Naira lasted for just only 2 days, it could not sustain the lifestyle set for you by the emir while alive. No wonder the devil is black. we can see why they abandon you….
    Secondly it is less then 8 months the late Ado Bayero passed, does it means you have no savings at all throughout the years you where with him. I put myself into their shoes, i will not do anything with such a wasful woman like you…250,000 naira only in 2 days you used such money

    • Yahaya

      and her first daughter is Due for University……………28yrs of age…..she has been in secondary trying to pass waec and JAMB all along!

        I am from Kano and I will tell you that Ado Bayero was the longest emir in the history of Kano. However, he had a terrible weakness for women, he would sleep with all sorts of women, from his nices to his grandniece. This story is one out of a hundred. I heard this particular story about 15 years ago.

        My sympathy goes to ms Momoh, but she should realize that Islam does not recognize children out of marriage.

    Lol! This story is of one lady that depend on the Emir and in turn cannot feed herself and her children after the Emir’s death. N250,000 given to her finished in two days because of her big lifestyle as she claimed. She rejected 2 million naira because it is too small. She is ready to commit suicide if no help comes by weekend.

    Is this no rather funny that some ladies still make themselves parasites to married men? How can a lady in her normal state of being abandon her university education because of a relationship with a married man? Afterwards, she becomes fully dependent on him. Now, she ended up with an empty pocket and an empty brain because if her brain is still there, she will know what business to set of with N250,000 rather than squandering it. Even when the family wanted to give her 2 million naira, she will gladly accept it and invest it for her future and her children’s. #ShakingMyHead

  • steve

    N250,000 in two days means she requires N125,000 in just one day. By simple addition it also suggests she needs about N3.75m in a month and about N45m in a year just to take care of herself and two children and anything short of this, according to the story, she is ready to kill herself and two children. The two children is inclusive of a 28 year old full grown woman, who ordinarIy should have been married with her own children. My own advice is that this senseless grand mother should be encouraged to hang herself asap

    Though, it is known that traditional rulers abnormally maintains concubines which is against the correct teaching of Islam. The woman said her relationship with Bayero began in 1984 when her father requested the late Emir to help her secure admission, that is exactly 30 years back. But Ms. Momoh claimed to have stayed in Kano for 32 years.

  • Hah!

    The entire story is nothing but mere nonsense.

  • Kmw

    What do you expect from a Hausa man, They are all like that. Even amongst them Kano people, known for their execive desire for women, the name Bayero is associated with adultery. The guy and his children are nemphomenaics. The guys just don’t have scruples. One of his children attempted to sleep with me knowing his relationship with my husband, he kept sending me text messages and inducing me with money. I eventually showed my husband the text messages and the money he had been sending me. I latter on learnt that he had attempted same with almost all the director’s wives.

    She deserves no sympathy at all. How can a widow that have never worked in her entire life squandered N250,000 in 2days?. She is never serious. Know this: your life is not your own. Its a gift from God and you have right to take it, talk less of your children’s lives.

After 4 years in relationship with my husband with 2 kids, he suddenly started going out with other ladies and coming home late, most at times drunk and each time i confront him about this it turns out to be fight, he even threatened to divorce me severally, I was emotionally devastated because i was not sure of what to do to make him love me again, I tried all i could to make him love me again but all proved abortive until i saw a post on the internet on how a spell caster Dr. Zaki helps people restore back their broken relationship/marriage at first i doubted this but decided to give it a try, when i contacted this spell caster via email he helped me cast a re-union spell and within 5hours my husband came to me apologizing and today we are happily together again.

    My name is Rosie Smith. To cut the long story short I tried about 3 different spell casters over a period of 3 months and all they wanted was more & more money and kept coming up with excuses that why the spell wasn’t working. Just when I was about to give up I came across several good testimonies of Dr. Aluda over the internet. I contacted him and he promised to restore my faith back into spell casters, that there are real and love spells that do actually work. I was very skeptical after several scam spell casters. Mine wasn’t a simple spell but Dr. Aluda went above & beyond his way to look for extra money when extra work was required. Always called & txt on time. Replied to emails on time. Only asked for half the spell money as initial payment. My partner had walked out on me one day with no explanation …. I was devastated. When I was about to give up hope, Dr. Aluda Spell guided and encouraged me, and then he was back 3 days after the spell was casted. I recommend Dr. Aluda extremely highly. Dr.Aluda you are a gifted man and I will not stop recommending him because he is a wonderful man.
