The 12-year-old marriage of Mohammed Babangida to Rahama Indimi may have hit the rocks, following a disclosure recently by the latter on a social media platform.
Following the disclosure by the mother of four and daughter of Maiduguri, Borno State-born billionaire, Alhaji Mohammed Idimi, not a few have been wondering why the marriage could not endure.
A source close to the family revealed that a lot of mudslinging and subtle blackmail had been ongoing, particularly from Rahama.
According to the source, ‘‘It is a shame that such a woman, who had all going well for her, could not keep her emotions in check. I wonder why she posted an audio message supposedly uttered by Mohammed against his wife, Umma, on her Instagram page. She pulled it down minutes after it was posted, claiming that it was done by a friend she confided in. It is a pity that her parents couldn’t even tell her the secret of running a home and the way to handle family disputes. Now, she has scattered her home all by herself’.’’
However, Rahama’s alleged denial has earned the opprobrium rather than empathy of many.
Spyglass gathered that she has also dropped her marital name and reverted to her maiden name.
The scion of the ex-Military President, Ibrahim Babangida’s marriage with Rahama has gone through lots of challenges in the past. It was gathered that the beautiful lady and CEO of Deva Petals and Fashion Cafe, a luxury fashion platform in Abuja earlier moved out of her matrimonial home sometime in 2008 when Mohammed got married to his second wife, Umma, the daughter of Ambassador Aminu Wali.
Rahama however returned to Mohammed in 2010 after pleas from family members and things turned sour between Mohammed and Umma.
