Janatil Firdawl Yakubu became a widow the same day she became a bride, as her groom died in an auto crash on their way to the wedding reception. According to reports, the Islamic wedding took place on Sunday morning, September 30, 2018.
After the first part of the ceremony, guests were supposed to have converged at Africana Guest House, opposite TF Hostel at Atomic Junction where the reception was supposed to take place.
The groom and his friends then left Adenta in a convoy towards the venue for the reception but things went awry when a vehicle trying to overtake another, run into the car that was conveying the couple.
The groom who was seriously injured in the accident, was rushed to the Legon Hospital but pronounced dead on arrival, turning the entire function into a mourning ground.
The bride is also on admission at the hospital.
The groom’s friends who could still not fathom the situation, took to their various Facebook profiles to express their grieves over the death of their beloved friend.
