Yesterday, a woman called Fatima Lamido asked her Twitter followers to join her in prayer for her husband’s marriage – with a second wife. According to her Twitter profile, she has a Masters in International Relations, and on the family front, she is also a mother and first wife.
See the tweet below:

Islamic law allows a man to marry up to four wives, provided he can love them equally. Polygamy is also permitted in most Nigerian customary/traditional marriages.
Since yesterday, she has been retweeting replies from others – some are telling her she deserves better, while some are applauding her for being a peacekeeper.
@Hajia_Fatee hope I’m not dreaming, this coming out from Nigeria woman. Ha! There’s love in sharing but not like sharing husband. Hmmmm…

If her tweets are to be believed, the wedding is taking place today.
