One Samuel Yarling, a groom-to-be, has reportedly died on his wedding day at Lamingo, Jos, Plateau State.
The wedding which was slated for March 21, at the ECWA Church Seminary, had sent two families into mourning after the sudden death of the groom.
Late Yarling who was set to marry his fiancée, Miss Helen Weze, a nurse, died on Saturday.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the late Yarling was full of life before his untimely death.
A family member revealed that both the late groom and he had gone to pick his wedding suit at his sister’s house at about 12am and while there he fell on the ground and had a slight bruise on his head.
He said that his bruise was treated at a nearby patent medicine store while they left for their guest house where they would pass the night.
The source further stated that after about an hour of their arrival at the guest house the late Yarling began to vomit uncontrollably.
He said he was rushed to Bingham University Teaching Hospital for treatment but was confirmed dead on arrival.
Describing the death as shocking and painful the source said that late Yarling kept telling him he was fine until everything took a different turn and he died in his arms.
However, due to shock, Helen has been hospitalized at the Bingham University Teaching Hospital (BHUT)
When NAN contacted the police, its PRO, ASP Uba Agaba, said that the death had not been reported but they would investigate the matter.
