LOVE, ROMANCE AND MARRIAGE
When Gowon became the Head of State, he was the youngest leader in Africa. But there was something more seductive than his youth and fresh smiles: he was a bachelor. #winks! He was romantically linked to Edith Ike, reportedly his Igbo girlfriend. On the 31st of January, 2003, a case appeared before the Supreme Court of Nigeria (Suit No: SC.64/97) and the appellant was General Gowon (Gowon v. Ike-Okongwu (2003) 6 NWLR (Pt.815)38 with Mrs. Edith Ike-Okongwu, Kayode Ajala and True Tales Publications Limited joined as respondents.
In 1969, he got married to his heartthrob and a nurse, Miss Victoria Zakari. It was during the civil war and some condemned the event as flamboyant and extravagant.
