From Bala TANKO, Jos
Tragedy struck in Jos, the Plateau state capital when a groom-to-be, Samuel Yarling, reportedly died on his wedding day.
Yarling was supposed to knot the tie with his bride-to-be, Helen Weze, a nurse, on Saturday, March 21, at the ECWA Church Seminary.
Narrating how the late groom died, a family member said, “Yarling had gone to pick his wedding suit at his sister’s house at about 12 am and while there he fell on the ground and had a slight bruise on his head.
“After the bruise was treated at a nearby medicine store, he returned to his guest house to pass the night.
The source said an hour after the groom-to-be arrived at the guest house, he began to vomit uncontrollably.
Yarling was then rushed to the Bingham University Teaching Hospital (BHUT) for treatment but was confirmed dead on arrival. Family members have described the death of Yarling as shocking and painful.
Family members said Weze is currently on admission at the Bingham University Teaching Hospital (BHUT) after going into shock when she learnt about the death of her soon-to-be husband.
