Following his divorce from his first wife, Olaitan in 2017, after the death of their child, Dimeji Bankole who was once a governorship candidate in Ogun State, had remained single until now, when he finally found the right partner.

The bride, a lawyer and graduate of the University of Hull in the UK, is a granddaughter of late Alh. Umaru Shinkafi, a political heavyweight and onetime head of Nigeria’s security organisation. The bride’s mother is Shinkafi’s daughter and a sister to the former Zamfara Governor, Aliyu Shinkafi.

A quiet introduction ceremony already took place between the two families according to Islamic and traditional injunctions.

Yesterday’s ceremony was a very quiet one, only among close friends and family members in line with adhering to COVID-19 safety protocols.
