Daily Nigerian reports that the angry groom, Babangida, who was one of the beneficiaries of the mass wedding sponsored by the state government on Sunday, February 26, 2017, threw out the woman,  Habiba Inusa, after she gave birth to a baby boy a day after the ceremony.

It was gathered that Babangida, a resident of Gangare area of Doguwa Local Government Area of the state, was shocked and annoyed that his new wife concealed the pregnancy from the organizers of the wedding and himself only to put to bed the next day.

The enraged Babangida, according to the report, forced Inusa out of his house with the baby shortly after giving birth.

However, the Commander General of the Kano State Hisbah Board that organized the wedding, Aminu Daurawa, said the couples were carefully selected after undergoing series of screening and wondered how Inusa could have hidden her pregnancy and escaped the various tests, including pregnancy test she and others were subjected to.
