100 couples got married at a mass wedding, at the main mosque in Kano, Nigeria on Tuesday.
"The wedding was a product of a Hisbah programme seeking to match divorced and widowed women looking to re-marry with available men."
"It aims to address what officials say is a high divorce rate as well as to provide a stable home environment for children."
"Part of the goal is to reduce unrest in Kano, which has been hit by deadly violence blamed on Islamist group Boko Haram. Analysts say frustrated youths have helped fill the ranks of the Islamists."
