Tragedy struck on Sunday as a bride-to-be Atika Isah died after a brief illness, 19 days before her wedding in Kaduna.
Atika was slated to get married to Engineer Nura Yahuza on January 31, 2020 at the Usman Danfodio jumaah mosque, Kaduna.
A family source told Dateline Nigeria that late Atika and Engineer Yahuza were in the process of distributing their wedding invitations when the tragedy occurred.
Announcing the death of Atika on his Facebook page, Engineer Yahuza said he had forgiven her, adding that Atika’s mother told him the same. He prayed to Almighty Allah to forgive her and grant her paradise.
Atika has since been buried according to Islamic rites after funeral prayers at Sidi Baba Street, opposite Tafoki Hospital in Unguwar Sanusi, Kaduna.
