“There is good understanding among us. They call themselves sisters, eat together in the same plate. They are just sisters. “I love them both with equal degree. They showed me deep love and care too. They possess everything I need in a woman. So I couldn’t resist marrying them both at a time.”
When he was asked if he would take another pair in future, Mr. Dahiru simply replied that nobody knows tomorrow.
