The incident reportedly took place in the Kurna area of Dala LGA in Kano State.

There was mild drama during a recent marriage ceremony in Kano State when the bride’s relative, who was designated to give her hand in marriage (Waliyyi), was accused of stealing her dowry just before the wedding.

The incident reportedly took place in the Kurna area of Dala LGA in Kano State.

According to Daily Trust, the theft was discovered after a search was conducted on individuals in the vicinity, and the money was found inside the pocket of the Waliyyi.

A ‘Waliyyi’ is a man who represents the bride in marriage negotiations.

A resident, identified as Sunusi Dan Mamman, who witnessed the incident, recounted that the dowry was found in the pocket of the Waliyyi, who claimed to have no knowledge of how the money ended up there.

“During the search, the money was found inside the pocket of the Waliyyi, who said he didn’t know how it got there.”

“After finding the money, the Waliyyi was chased out of the mosque as he could no longer stand as the bride’s representative. His younger brother was then assigned to take his place, and the wedding proceeded,” he said.
