A Nigerian man, Sufiyanu Abubakar Salihu, is set to marry his late fiancée’s younger sister, Fatima Ibrahim Kani, one week after her death in Bauchi.
Salihu had taken to Twitter a few days ago to mourn his fiancée, Rukaiya Ibrahim Kani who died on Wednesday, July 27, two weeks to their wedding.
Before her unexpected death, Rukaiya and Salihu were scheduled to get married in Bauchi on August 12.
Well, Salihu will now marry Fatima Ibrahim Kani, the younger sister of his deceased lover, on August 12, the day he was meant to wed Rukaiya.
The elder brother of the sisters, Aliyu Ibrahim Kani, took to Facebook on Wednesday, August 3, to share the new invitation card with Rukaiyat’s name replaced with Fatima’s.
“Life is full of lessons to believe. Invitation to my twin sister wedding fatiha Fatima Ibrahim kani Zara.
