A Nigerian man identified as Jamilu Abdulhamid has tragically passed away in a car accident two days after his wedding in Kano State.
According to reports, Abdulhamid and his wife, Saratu Abdul Salisu were reportedly married on Sunday, July 11 in Kano state.
Abulhamid and Saratu were involved in a road accident that occurred along the Kaduna-Abuja highway on Tuesday, July 13th.
While the groom died instantly, the bride was seriously injured and she is currently receiving treatment in an undisclosed hospital in Abuja.
The groom’s friend, Kabiru Garba, who confirmed the incident, wrote on Facebook;
“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.”
