Tragedy as groom dies, bride injured in motor accident two days after their wedding

A Kano State indigene, Jamilu Abdulhamid, has died in a ghastly motor accident two days after his wedding.


The deceased according to reports, was joined with his wife, Saratu Abdul Salisu on Sunday, July 11, in Kano.

However, while their wedding event was still fresh, the couples got involved in a road crash along the Kaduna-Abuja highway on Tuesday, July 13, Vanguard reports.

The groom reportedly died on the spot, but the bride was seriously injured and currently receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital in Abuja.

The groom’s friend, Kabiru Garba, who confirmed the incident, said the couple left Kano for Abuja with a plan to head to the Benin Republic where they were supposed to settle down.

Garba in a Facebook post said: “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 the 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.”
