Hundreds of youths in Kano are still searching for the young lady, named Zainab, who offered to give a 2013 model of Anaconda car to any man who volunteers to marry her.
The drama began on Tuesday night when a young lady, Lady Gift Zainab, was heard on the popular Hausa programme on a local station ‘Freedom Radio’ offering to give a 2013 model of Anaconda car and a house to any man who will volunteer to marry her.
This 22-year-old lady who is into business at a famous essential commodities market, Singer Market, said that she was deceived and disappointed by a young man after investing hugely in his upkeep.
Leadership learnt that with such offer by Zainab, youths in their hundreds trooped to Freedom Radio, asking of her and offering themselves for marriage in order to receive the offer by the next morning.
Lady Gift is said to have a business capital of over N5million.
One of the security personnel of the Radio Station who spoke on condition of anonymity confirmed that the large number of youths that besieged the station almost overwhelmed them and that they had requested for police intervention.
Also, the news editor of the Radio Station, Abdullateef Abubakar Jos, said the lady later arrived at the station at about 1pm when the hundreds of youths were waiting for her.
He added that she came face to face with hundreds of youths who claimed to love her, and picked one of them, after which she was provided with police escort to get her out of the place safely.
Our reporter spoke with a young boy, Musbahu DanBaba, who said he would love to take her as his wife no matter her facial looks as long as she would provide him with the car and house as she pledged.
“I believe in Allah and all praises be to Him, that it is not a sinful act for a man to marry a woman because of her wealth. Therefore, marrying her is not going to generate any problem”, he stated.
We were told that the management of the Radio Station was happy as their station attracted greater attention and business.
As at yesterday, radio stations and opinion leaders on various platforms described the development as laughable, while some said it showed the extent of poverty among young men.
