Hauwa Suntai, the widow of the late former Governor of Taraba State, Danbaba Suntai, has reverted to Islam and married a Katsina-born businessman, Hali Saad Malami Malumfashi, aka San Turaki. He was a former SSA to Deputy Senate President, Governor Ikweremadu.
Born into a Muslim family from Borno, Hauwa converted to Christianity when she married Mr Suntai decades ago.
Sources said Mr Malami, believed to be in his 30s, is Turai Yar’Adua’s cousin. Hauwa’s late husband was involved in a plane crash in October 2012 and died on June 28, 2017 in Houston, Florida, in the United States.
Mr Malami married Hauwa, who is in her 50s, in a lowkey event held at the National Mosque, Abuja yesterday, Saturday.
