Reportedly, Suleiman Isah, a native of Kano who got married to 46-year-old American citizen Janine Sanchez last year, has recently enlisted in the California Army National Guard, which is a reserve component of the United States Army.
The official records indicate that the Guard has a total strength of 18,450 soldiers.
In a social media post made on Friday, Isah, dressed in the military uniform, captioned a photo of himself “Alhamdulillah – forever grateful.”
Isah and Sanchez met online before getting married on December 13, 2020.
The wedding, which took place at MOPOL 52 Barracks Juma’at Mosque in Panshekara, Kumbotso Local Government of Kano State, attracted thousands of well-wishers from within and outside the state.
The groom’s father’s relative, Shehu Sani, a former Senator representing Kaduna Central, stood in as Janine’s representative during the wedding ceremony.
