“Abubakar was my immediate elder brother and I loved him very much. His death still hurts me so much.
What happened was that, after his death, the fiancée’s family sent a message to my family. And the message is that the lady said she likes me and instead of calling off the wedding that was just three weeks away, it would be better I replace my brother, and today we are husband and wife.
I had a girlfriend but this thing that happened is destiny and I am glad that my ex-girlfriend accepted it the way it is. Both families are in support of what we did and that is the most important thing.
My friend showed me some of the comments on social media but I’m not moved at all because God has already blessed our wedding. It rained on our wedding day to show God’s blessings,” he said.
Recall that Sulaiman’s elder brother, Abubakar was killed during a gun duel with armed bandits at Ungwan Laya near Birnin Gwari, Kaduna state on February 13 and was buried the next day.
He was said to have shared his pre-wedding photos before his tragic end.
