That was senior special assistant to the vice president on media and publicity- Mallam Umar Sani, on rumours that he had married popular Nigerian actress Nkiru Sylvanus
Nkiru, according to reports on the internet, married Mallam Umar Sani, as second wife just a week after she was released by kidnappers. The report also claimed it was Mallam Sani that paid the N8million ransom money.
Here is the picture that sparked the rumours:
Mallam Umar Sani has reacted to the report, calling it ridiculous and a figment of the writer’s imagination. He said to reporters at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, yesterday evening:
“The report is very funny. How can you marry somebody you have not seen for over three months? The last time I saw her was in September so how can a marriage take place when the subject matters have not seen each other? I have not married Nkiru Sylvanus and if a wedding of such took place, people should be able to name the place, date and time. It is not true”.
