A photo of Yusuf Buhari’s fiancée, Princess Zahra Ado-Bayero, the daughter of the Emir of Bichi, Alhaji Nasir Ado-Bayero, in an expensive and transparent bridal wear, has surfaced online.
Zahra’s dress, it is understood, was for her bridal shower in preparation for the wedding scheduled to hold on August 20.
Her dressing had elicited mixed reactions from Nigerians in view of her religious background.
Also, Zahra’s father is a ruler in Bichi, a town in Kano State where the Islamic corps, Hisbah, had banned dressing considered unreligious.
Some Nigerians highlighted Zahra’s gown, part of which is made from a transparent material; they also pointed out that she did not have her hair covered as is usually done by Muslim women.
Officials of Hisbah in Kano State have over the years forcefully enforced its policies, particularly on dressing, on residents of the state irrespective of their religious affiliation.
The agency has banned stylish haircuts, sagging of trousers and playing of music at social events by disk jockeys.
