Nigerian Senator Ahmed Yerima "married " to 13 years old Egyptian girl, this piece of news caused huge anger within the women rights groups, because it is not the first time for the ex governor of Zemafra state who applied Sharia law, but also because it is a typical case of trafficking a minor to cross border for sexual exploitation under the name of marriage.

Senator Yerima has been questioned by the Nigerian agency of anti trafficking and after three hours of interrogation, he was released on a bail.

It is note worthy that Egyptian side is discreet about this case and there is no legal action taken against Yerima or the girl's parents.
