According to reports, Munse-Bwaye, who was once a widower, became attracted Rukaya when he met her and decided they should marry and live together as husband and wife.
In an interview following his marriage, Munse-Bwaye who is the oldest man in Kiyi village in Kuje Council Area Abuja, disclosed that despite having grownup children with wives who took care of him, he wanted his own wife because no woman would be able to take care of him like his wife.
Munse-Bwaye noted that many people attempted talking him out of getting married again but he stuck to his decision because of his love for Rukaya.
His marriage to Rukaya follows his first wife, Hajia Zainab Godobe’s death in 2008.
Munse-Bwaye revealed that he had married a widow, Salamatu, after his first wife’s death but she was also taken away from him by her children years ago.
The 96-year-old man asked Rukayah to marry him and notes that ''Allah made her to accept, I am very happy.''
