Just hours before her wedding ceremony, a young lady in Bauchi State broke her leg.
During the Yuletide holidays, a resident of Jangyar village in the Bogoro Local Government Area of the State was involved in an accident, according to reports.
On Sunday, December 26th, 2021, the accident occurred while the lady’s brother, Nenfort, was transporting his sister (the bride-to-be) to Gyara on his motorcycle.
The wedding of Nenfort’s sister was said to be on the 28th of December.
Nenfort was killed in the tragic accident, according to reports. Despite her condition and the untimely death of her brother, the wedding went ahead as planned.

James, a friend of the late Nenfort, told journalists on Tuesday that he spoke with him on Sunday morning, only to learn later that his friend had died in an accident.
“I asked Nenfort to drive me to Lafiya Sara on Sunday morning, but he reluctantly declined, claiming he needed to go to church. I was able to come to an agreement with him and let him go.
“I was at home when I heard about the accident from a friend, and I couldn’t stop crying,” James said.
Furthermore, James stated that while the deceased sister’s wedding was taking place, they received the tragic news that two young people, Miss Ruth John of Ndukum and Mr Wulumbu of Gambar Lere village, had been found dead at Samiya village.
The couple, who were said to have recently returned to the state from Lagos, was discovered dead early Tuesday morning, according to unconfirmed reports that they were hit by a vehicle while returning from a wedding ceremony.
A woman was also killed in a car accident on Monday at Tundu Wada, according to another source who requested anonymity.
The most recent sad development brings the total number of people who died in the local community during the Yuletide break to four.
