When all is good and nothing in the world can make an ice cream taste sour, life has a way of sowing seeds of pain in the fields of our happiness.
Even when one is forced to marry a betrothed, nothing is expected to go wrong on the wedding day.
Merrymaking and joy should not be in short supply.
However, families of a bride and groom got a double dose of sorrow.
Disu Kamaru and Janatil Firdawl Yakubu had been married in what has been described as a colourful and happy wedding ceremony.
Now, husband and wife, the two were travelling to join family and friends to make merry at their reception ceremony at the African Guest House, located at Atomic Junction.
What was to be a happy event quickly turned into a sad one when the car the new couple was travelling in had an accident and resulted in the death of the groom, Disu.
Just hours after becoming a wife, Janatil has also become a widow.
Disu, reportedly died shortly after he was rushed to the hospital after he crashed their vehicle into a tree.
Such a sad incident to have occurred on the most joyful day in Disu and Janatil’s lives.
