President Buhari got married to his first wife Hajia Safinatu Buhari in 1971.
Safinatu was not known to many Nigerians because she lived her life free from the limelight for religious and cultural reasons.
After Buhari was released from jail, he divorced Safinatu for receiving financial aid from Ibrahim Babangida while in jail and in 1989, he got married to Aisha Buhari. On 14 January 2006, Safinatu Buhari, the former first lady, died from complications of diabetes.
