Just In Case I Don’t Make It Till Monday, Please Tell My Story! Late Emir’s Mistress Writes Premium Times

“I have no shelter over my head, my children hardly eat and they are not even in school like their peers,” 48-year-old Ado Bayero’s mistress lamented.

Sullen and distraught, and her voice trembling, Hauwa Momoh, despite her affiliation with two royal families, appears to be experiencing hell. She believes the suffering had now intensified to a level she can no longer bear.

Besides being the daughter of a former senior traditional ruler in Edo State, the Otaru of Auchi, Ms. Momoh was the mistress of the immediate past Emir of Kano, Ado Bayero, for nearly three decades, in a lengthy but secret affair with one of Nigeria’s most influential traditional rulers. Continue below...


With four wives already – maximum for a Muslim man – Mr. Bayero also maintained intimate relationship with a number of other women not married to him, Ms. Momoh told Premium Times recently.

She said at least 16 of the women were known, and she was one of the lot.

Her affair, lasting 30 years, yielded two children, and the emir accepted and took care of them until his death in June, Ms. Momoh said.

Now she said she is prepared to end her life and her children’s after the emir’s family left her and her children homeless, and shut off all avenues of support she hitherto received for herself and children.

Ms. Momoh has been in touch with PREMIUM TIMES for weeks, asking this paper to help prevail on Ado Bayero’s family to assist her children. She describes the family as very wealthy and spoke of the late emir as a kind and pleasant man who provided all she needed and gave her family the best of treatments while he was alive.

She said since the Emir died, life has been hellish for her and her children. She begs to feed herself and children today, and has no support or shelter, she said.

After Premium Times began investigating her claim, reaching out to late emir’s family, Ms. Momoh told this paper she was sent N250, 000 from Kano with a request to stay off the media. The money lasted two days as it could not sustain the lifestyle set for her by the emir while alive, she said.

Ms. Momoh said she was promised another N2 million as settlement, but she has dismissed that as too meagre, given her current needs, taste and the family’s wealth.

Ado Bayero’s family declined to speak formally to PREMIUM TIMES on the case, despite repeated requests for comments and clarifications.

University Affair

As the Emir of Kano for more than 50 years, Ado Bayero was only third to the Sultan of Sokoto and the Emir of Gwandu in prominence in the perking order of northern Nigeria traditional rulers. He was also one of Nigeria’s most influential personalities.

Beyond his royal and religious influence, Ado Bayero was also an astute businessman with investments spanning almost all sectors of the Nigerian economy and even beyond, his associates say. He is believed to have left behind a lot of wealth.

He left behind at least four wives, 60 children and at least 16 concubines, Ms. Momoh told Premium Times.

Ms. Momoh’s relationship with Emir Bayero began in 1984. Her father, the late Otaru of Auchi, Ahmed Guruza Momoh, was Mr. Bayero’s friend, Ms. Momoh said.

She said the Kano Emir began to date her when her father requested the late Emir Bayero to help her secure admission placement into Bayero University Kano BUK, named after the Emir himself.
“The relationship started back as 1984 when my father referred me to him, to help me gain admission into BUK. I have always wanted to study in BUK,” Ms. Momoh told Premium Times, her voice burdened.

But instead of an admission into BUK, Ms. Momoh became pregnant for the Emir in 1986.

“I found out I was pregnant when in 1986 when I was in London, and as I got back I told him I was pregnant for him, he then said we will get married after I put to bed because Islamically it’s wrong to marry someone who is pregnant, ” she narrated.

Ms. Momoh travelled back to Auchi to break the news to her father. The shocked chief sent her back to the emir, and vowed she would not be allowed to have her baby in his house without marriage.

Fifteen years later, a second child, a boy, arrived. Ms. Momoh said at all times, they were all well taken care of by the emir.

“I stayed in Kano for 32 years, the Emir was very nice to me while he was alive, he took care of me and our two children, and he gave us money, he was indeed a nice man before he died,” she said.

After the emir took ill, communications slowed between him and his mistress. Soon, Ms. Momoh’s children became sick and would not respond to treatment, forcing their mother to relocate to Lagos.

“I was not able to see the Emir for one year as he fell ill, at the same time my children were also sick so I had to relocate to Lagos for further and better treatment. I and my children stayed in Lagos in my friends place till my children got better,” she explained.

Two weeks before Mr. Bayero died, Ms. Momoh travelled to see him in Kano. While there, she said she realized her home in Kano had been vandalized and all her properties were stolen, leaving the house empty.

When she eventually met the emir, the traditional ruler, she said, promised to take care of her and children, promised them shelter and directed one of his sons, Nasir, to ensure that was done.
“Nasir knew us very well. In fact, he used to come and give us money for upkeep when his father was alive,” Ms. Momoh explained.

That warm relationship between her and Nasir broke down after the emir’s death.

Now, Ms. Momoh blames Nasir and another of the late emir’s son, Aminu, for her troubles, saying they refused to carry out their father’s directive.

As her suffering and that of her children worsened, she said she met Nasir on several occasions, to convey to him how desperate she needed help. The two sons promised to get back to her, but never did.

Ms. Momohs said today her children are no longer in school, as they roam the country looking for shelter. She is currently in Abuja squatting with a friend and struggling to survive.

“I almost slept at the central Mosque in Abuja, I have no savings, I have no roof over my head, my first daughter is due for the university but she is with me, my second son has been out of school for over a year now. We find it very difficult to eat. And all this became worse after the Emir died,” She explained.

On Friday, after turning down the N2million she was offered, Ms. Momoh said she and her children had agreed to take their lives if no help came by the weekend.


“Just in case we don’t make it to Monday, tell our story,” she urged Premium Times.

  1. Hmmmm, so sad. Some families can be so heartless. We are talking of the late emir's blood here. None of his kids should be going through this. But woman, did u not invest while the late emir was giving you money? You should have been wise enough that since u were not married to him, u needed to get some money off him and establish yourself. Probably u were living a flamboyant life and did not acquire your own wealth. Well, suicide is not the solution. The whole country would read about you and your children's predicament and am sure the Bayeros would sort you out. But learn to invest for the future. My 2 cents.

  2. Pathetic...the death of a bread winner always bring such but Madam why didnt you invest, why did you not engage yourself in bussinesses or buy shares in your children's names, set up education trust fund for your children, open and save hugely into your children's account. It is never wise to dwell only in the present. You should have acted fast when your man was alive and spending money. God help you oo Madam. Olori Toluwabori A

  3. You have no right to take your own life not to talk of the lives of your children. Pick yourself up and start something . No matter how small, with prayer, dedication, hard work and positive attitude, your bussiness will boom and you will be able to stand on your feet. Not indirectly begging by threatening to die. I tire for you ooo. Olori Toluwabori A

    2. Thank. You. I can't even believe people feel sorry for this glorified side chick. If this was a woman, any amount would have been ok. She would put her kids first, invest and keep hustling from tjere. And this hoe is talking about. 'Its not enough to sustain our lifestyle'. Lol! Laughable. In her next life when. They. Send her to school, that's exactly where she will go. Olodo!

  8. 250k in 2months. Madam your suffering has not yet started. Soo all these years you and your useless children are just sitting down mouth open waiting for food from emir. An old man for that matter. You will have to first learn how to find a job and manage money. The sons don't owe you anything. Their father is dead, and I am sure they have their own wives and concubines. Their family does not hold the emirship again. If you can find your way into the new emir's bed, more meat to your bones. Shouldn't your first child be about 30 by the way? The child is still in school? Buhahhaha

    3. Immediately I read that she got pregnant in 1986, and had another 15 years later, I stopped feeling for her. She's a lazy, greedy spendthrift. The first child should have been self sufficient by now, except she raised him to be lazy like herself.
      How come she has no savings? Side chic of an Emir as rich as Bayero, same Emir that had 50 million in an account he had forgotten about? Chai! The woman no try at all. She couldn't get him to build a house for her. Please this story stinks.

  13. This is a very foolish and lazy woman who latched on to the late emir because of his wealth. Does she mean she dated him for 30 years and didn't run any business? Her only business was living off the emir? She should be ashamed of herself! I have no pity for you gold digger.

  17. Hahaha! You are still living the lifestyle the emir had set for you. If you like don't cut your clothes to your size. So for a solid 30yrs that you have been collecting serious money from the emir, you could not invest and save. You just sat and held out your hands and was chopping. Did you think that the emir would live forever? You are a very foolish woman if you think that because they are wealthy, they should just be pumping millions in to the pockets of a mere mistress. Mtchewwwww!

  18. You're a very foolish woman, dts if ur story is anything to go by. How could you be a concubine and still think thr'll b smth 4 u wen he dies? Oh! Dt his sons wud tk care of u? You seriously thought dey would? You should have known better. You didn't even care to ask d astute and vast businessman to set u up, @least give u smth to call ur own dt wud generate income for you and nt you living large- the emir standard kind of life- on "pocket money". Dts very wise of u. And then your daughter of 28yrs, an offspring of d Bayero, is still talking about university, @ her age? Whenshe shud have completed schooling long b4 now and got fixed smwhr by d Bayero, whr she cud wrk or manage one of his businesses or smth, and tk care of u from thr. No! U still wanted crumbs as pocket money or is it "up-keep money". You really are a wise woman, u got what u planned for. Or rather dts wt u get when u dnt plan for the future, just living in d now. So myopic. Anyways, ur cup, drink it; ur cross, carry it. I just hope u ask 4 a better settlement and not this money u're asking for, cos it'll definitely finish. But again, wt settlement will you ask for wen none of ur kids r ripe 4 fixing up and sure dey won't consider setting u up. Not now, nt ever. Well, njoy your life. Cheers.

  28. I don't feel absolutely any pity for you. He had 4 wives and 16 mistresses including you. You knew all about this n still stayed with him as his mistress and gave birth to two children for him.

  29. Before we judge her, lets look at her situation. She is 48 now and lived in Kano for 32 years. That means she met the Emir when she was 16. A 16-year old sheltered girl, was probably moulded by the Emir. Who probably did not encourage her to save or invest so as to remain loyal and dependent on him. We can only blame, her if she was advised by close role models in her life to invest and plan for the future and she refused to do so. I seriously doubt she had any such advice from close associates or family members because most women in the North, with the exception of Abuja, are heavily dependent on their husbands. She was deluded for the past 30 years living in a cocoon, the real world is a shock to her. The family should understand her situation and give her substantiate amount of money to start a business or invest in property whereby she can live on proceeds. I don't support any endless lifeline of support. The Emirs children also have their responsibilities.

  32. Typical Nigerian woman, always waiting for the men to give them money and take care of them. Madam mistress, stop disturbing us with your adulterous life with the emir, get your self and your adult children a job or rather look for another emir and both you and your daughter can be his mistresses at the same time so that you can be taken care of to your high life style. Shameless, irrational humans floating the surface of the earth.The emir's family has time self to even look your way. Carreer mistress.

What a 28 year old is doing at home looking to their mother for food and shel ter is beyond me. A 28 year old looking for school fees should go and face life and get a job to take care of their mother and younger sibling. Many people are able to ddo it with just make 25k a year (hard but they do it) so shut up go get jobs and take care of your own damn selves
