A Nigerian man, Jamilu Abdulhamid has reportedly died in an accident two day after his wedding in Kano State.
Abdulhamid and his wife, Saratu Abdul Salisu got married on Sunday, July 11, in Kano State and the newlywed were involved in a road accident along the Kaduna-Abuja highway on Tuesday, July 13.
The groom died on the spot, while the bride was seriously injured and currently receiving treatment in an undisclosed hospital in Abuja.
The groom’s friend, Kabiru Garba, said the couple left Kano for Abuja with a plan to head to Benin Republic where they were supposed to settle down.
“Innalillahi wa inna ilaihi raji’un! We lost Jamilu in a ghastly car accident on their way to Abuja. The couple just got married last Sunday and left Kano for Abuja in their plan to settle in their matrimonial home in Benin Republic. I had my last chat with Saratu yesterday where i was re-congratulating her on her marriage. Saratu is currently in a hospital in Abuja receiving medical attention.” Garba said on Facebook.
The deceased was also married to another woman and they have children together.
