The family of a groom, Thomas Obi, aka Majar was thrown into mourning as they buried him on his proposed wedding day.

This was made known by a relation to the deceased, George Odok Jnr, who took to his Facebook page on Thursday to share the sad news.

Odok noted that Obi and his bride were supposed to tie the nuptial knot on Thursday, December 30 and Friday, December 31 but the latter was instead buried on his proposed wedding day.

According to him, Obi had embarked on a journey on December 13 as part of preparations for the wedding but had unfortunately been involved in an accident that claimed his life on the spot.

The bride and the two families have since been thrown into mourning following the loss of the deceased.

He wrote, “Tears upon tears as my cousin brother is buried on his supposed wedding day

“Oh, death, why the sudden surface, why did you come now to claim away the life of my dear first cousin brother, Mr Thomas Obi, a.k.a Majar?

“Your marriage was fixed for Dec. 30th and 31st in Boki, but sadly, it turned out to be your day of eternal rest.

“My dear late cousin brother, you travelled to Calabar to make proper arrangements for the marriage and to pick some valuables needed for the wedding, only for you to be struck by an accident in Nko community in Yakurr LGA, and you were the only passenger that died at the spot on December 13.

“Can we question God for this painful demise? Oh, no, we can’t question God, because he gives and takes according to his divine timetable.

“What about your spouse, who was to wear her wedding gown today to be officially handed over to you in marriage? Oh no, this is a sad one! What about your children, what about your immediate family, extended family, friends and associate? This is one death too painful to behold.

“People have travelled from far and near to attend your wedding, to celebrate with you, to say congratulations on your happy holy matrimony, to watch you kiss your wife, but sadly, with tears in our eyes, we are rather seeing your lifeless corpse.

“Words have failed me, oh dear Majar, I wish we could bring you back to life by neutralising your demise! May you rest with the Lord!”
