The Comptroller General of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Col. Hameed Ali (Rtd) recently married a new bride, Hajiya Zainab Abdullahi in a low keyed wedding ceremony owing to the prevalence of the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.
Hameed Ali’s first wife, Hajiya Hadiza Jummai Ali died in Abuja on October 29th, 2018 at the age of 53 years old.
Hajiya Ali who was the first lady of Kaduna State when her husband served as a military administrator of the state from 1996 to 1998, left behind her husband, Hameed Ali and four children.
Born 15 January 1955, the current Customs CG previously served as Military Governor of Kaduna State from 1996 to 1998. After retirement, he became secretary of the Arewa Consultative Forum – a political and cultural association of leaders in Northern Nigeria.
Meanwhile, the ditched boyfriend’ has sued the new bride to the Comptroller General of the Nigerian Customs Service Col. Hameed Ali. In a letter of legal obligation for Deceit, “Mischievous and Breach of Trust Relationship (sic).” The disgruntled boyfriend Zubairu Dalhatu Malami alleged that he has been in a relationship with Zainab (now Mrs. Ali) for over three years and has invested so much in her life, future and business when she consistently promised to marry him.
In the Demand Notice filed by Buba Partners (Kwarshi Chambers), Mr. Malami alleged that then Ms Zainab picked an unnecessary fight with him few days to her marriage to the customs boss wherein she insulted him and called him all kinds of names with claims that he calculate all she had collected from him both as loans, investments and trip tickets. In view of that, Mr. Malami demanded that Zainab refund the sum of two Million Seven Hundred and Seventy Eight thousand, two hundred and seven Naira forty Kobo for travel tickets to various countries including the United Kingdom and United Arab Emirates, One Million Five Hundred thousand Naira loan for her investment, One Million Seven Hundred and Sixty Three Thousand Naira Only for her LEFE (bride) clothes among other monetary and material demands. When contacted, Customs Public Relations Officer, Joseph Attah said he was on his way to the National Assembly with the CG boss and will consult with him later.
Counsel to the aggrieved boyfriend I.I. Wangida confirmed the letter but refused to say more on the matter because it is “unethical.” He expressed surprised at how the letter leaked to the press knowing that he had only served it to Zainab Abdullahi Yahaya. Efforts to reach both the aggrieved boyfriend and the bride proved abortive at the time of this report.
