Senator Yerima Defends his Marriage to a 13 Year Old Egyptian Girl


Great report on Senator Ahmed Yerima’s marriage to a 13 year old Egyptian girl. This has been generating much controversy in Nigeria. Apparently the girl is the daughter of Yerima’s driver. Yerima is 50 years old and is a former Governor of Zamfara State.

This is a very touchy issue pitting religious law/conviction against Nigeria’s secular law. It is illegal in Egypt and Nigeria to marry anyone aged under 18. However many northern states (including Yerima’s state of Zamfara) rejected the prohibition on marrying under 18s.

Yerima said he rejects the law, “my people rejected it so also other states in the North because it is against their religion.” Watch the video above to see Yerima defend his marriage to the girl.

  1. it is a wicked act for a man of 50 to force his manhood into a girl that has not know a man. that yerima or whatever God shall sure visit him with rought.

    1. The man is a muslim – did you not hear of how their ‘Prophet’ married a 6 year old girl called Aiyesha and conusmmated the marriage by the time she was 9. In Islam, the sin of Shirk is one of the worst things that a person can commit (i.e Idolatry). Nevertheless, this adoration of making things okay and proper if Muhammad did it overules the correct mind of his worshippers. To this end, you will see many young men with beards (because the prophet did it); Asian men will dye their hair with Heanna (because the prophet did it); they also try to copy his mode of eating with the thumb and first finger (because their prophet did it)………. plllllllllllllllllllluease – if this is not ‘idolatry’ please tell me what it is?????

  2. how can an old man like that sleep with a girl that is supose tobe his grand duagther, well it is a shame that such a personality is found to be a law maker in the federal republic of nigeria. WHAT A SHAME I BELIEVE THAT SHAMELESS MAN CALLED YERIMA WILL ALSO RAPE HIS FEMALE CHILDREN BECAUSE HE HAS NO CONSCIENCE.

  4. What do you expect from a country governed by outdated constitution.The same people that says crucify Yerima are still the same people that resisted the passage into law by the Law makers 4yrs ago the ‘Reproductive and Sexual Right Bill’ which would have protected such an abuse on teenagers.Let Nigerians wake up and stop this their holier than thou attitude.Please support the passage of such bills.It is not an abortion law as the ignorants will tag it.

    1. THE END TIME IS AT THE DOOR…

  5. I am a fifteen year old girl. I might not be a Muslim but I know this is completely not right. A 13 or 14 year old girl subjected to this because of $100,000. Is it worth your child’s happiness, pride, dignity and childhood!

  6. Just my view!
