Feb 3rd, 2013 – Bride’s Mother Slumps & Dies After Daughter Refused To Marry Abroad Lover In Benin City, Edo State

Tragedy struck in Ogbeawo Quarters, Asaba, Delta State when a mother of a 26-year-old graduate of philosophy from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN), who was reportedly proposed to by a Europe-based “grave digger” slumped and died a few hours later in the hospital over her daughter’s refusal to marry him.

The lady’s photographs were sent to the “lover boy” who hails from Igbanke in Edo State for approval as his wife and upon his endorsement, he sent his photograph to the lady and phone numbers for her confirmation.

LEADERSHIP SUNDAY learnt that the ‘lover boy’, a graduate of chemical engineering from the University of Benin (UNIBEN) sought to be a grave digger abroad after his efforts to get a better job failed and had also sought help for a wife in Asaba through his relation who works in one of the state owned ministries.

It was gathered that when his photograph was sent to the lady, she cherished it and kept it in her handbag wherever she went, and showed it to her friends, who did not hide their admiration ofthe overseas-based ‘lover’.

The duo allegedly talked on phone frequently and also planned their wedding, which their communities eagerly waited to witness.

The date for the traditional marriage was slated for last month as her parents insisted the wedding must hold in Benin City, the Edo State thereafter.

Her parents’ residence at Ogbeawo, was decorated. Last Thursday, family members including friends were assembled while an Asaba-based comedian “Frank De Don” was on hand to add colour to the show and after the bride price paid, both families engaged the floor for a dance.

As guests were wining and dancing, the unexpected happened when the bride and the groom to take their turn to dance: they were both nowhere to be found.

    The story is conflicting. “She refused to marry grave digger, bride price was paid, the two families were dancing, the couple disappeared”. The writer was in a hurry and at the end made no sense.
