Leadership newspaper reported that the rowdiness caused by the mullahs took the shine off the event as the followers of the Islamic clerics engaged in a shouting match, prompting the Security details to immediately spirit Sambo out of the venue.
According to reports, trouble started at the famous Sultan Bello Mosque, Kaduna venue of the event when after conducting all the formalities for a wedding fatiha, two respected Islamic clerics, Sheik Dahiru Bauchi and Dr. Ahmed Gumi were asked to offer a special prayer for the couples.
Sheik Dahiru Bauchi started by reciting ‘Salatil Fati’ and ended it with the same ‘Salatil Fati’ according to his belief.
When Dr. Gumi took the microphone, he said “Malam Dahiru Bauchi ought not to recite Salatil Fati in this Sultan Bello Mosque, since we have different views and understanding on the suplication.”
His statement stirred a row between their followers, a development that made the guests including the vice president to immediately rush out to their vehicles and leave the venue.
The wedding fatiha was contracted amidst tight security in and around the mosque.

One of the vice president’s daughters, Huwaila Sambo was married to Muktar Gambo Ruma, who paid N50, 000 as bride price, while Auwal Abdurrahman, who wedded Aisha Sambo paid N250,000 and five cows, which was received by Gen. Ibrahim Babangida, who stood as the father of the brides
The Chief Imam of the mosque, who presided over the event, Shiekh Balele Wali, congratulated the couples and prayed Allah to bless them with children and enduring wealth.
Meanwhile it has emerged that Northern governors preferred to attend the wedding ceremony of two of the daughters of Vice-President Namadi Sambo in Kaduna state on Saturday.  In the same vain, south west governors for unknown reasons, stayed away entirely from the burial ceremony of Chief Meni Innocent Jonathan, President Goodluck Jonathan’s younger brother in Otuoke, Bayelsa state.
