Lagos State commissioner of police (CP) Hakeem Odumosu on Saturday got married to businesswoman and socialite Princess Folashade Omotade at a ceremony on Banana Island.
The Nikkah was attended by close family and friends.
Juju singer Sir Shina Peters entertained guests with Gbenga Adeyinka serving as master of ceremonies.
Ovation publisher and friend of the bride Dele Momodu was also in attendance.
Odumosu, 58, was appointed Lagos CP in November 2019.
This is not his first marriage.
His bride, also 58, was previously married to Olaseni Omotade, a federal permanent secretary who died in the Bellview Airlines Flight 210 crash on October 22, 2005 in Lisa Village, Ogun State.
Speaking in a 2018 interview, Folasade Omotade said she went through the good, bad and the ugly sides of life after her former husband died.
She was quoted as saying remarriage should not be a widow’s priority.
“I always tell widows to take care of their children first and not think of remarriage after the death of a spouse.
“Remarriage should not be a priority. First, you should think of your children’s education, shelter and their welfare.
“There are many men who want to sleep with you as a widow. In fact, there are some gold-diggers who want to have you and take all the money you have as a widow,” she said.
Her first child Olajumoke got married to Malachi Agoro in Lagos in January 2020.
