A Nigerian bride reportedly passed only a few hours after her wedding ceremony in Lokoja, capital of Kogi State.
The bride, whose name was not disclosed, reportedly complained of stomach discomfort during her wedding ceremony.
However, when the discomfort grew worse, the bride began to complain and was rushed to the hospital where she was reportedly given attention.
Sadly, she deteriorated further, and it was found that she had internal hemorrhage.
She did not make it through the treatment after being taken into the operating room for an urgent surgery.
The story was shared by a Twitter user who wrote:
“This lady’s wedding took place in Lokoja on 29th April. She was said to be complaining of stomach pains right from the reception, and was given coke to drink when she said she hadn’t eaten all day, the pain persisted when she got back to her parent’s home while receiving prayers/blessings from her parents before conveying her to her husband’s house as tradition required.
“She was eventually rushed to a private hospital and the doctor on duty administered a diclofenac injection. The situation got worse and she was referred to the Federal Medical Center where they diagnosed that she had internal bleeding and needed urgent operation.
“This beautiful young lady didn’t make it after the operation. What a sad day for the parents and groom. May God help us!”
