Family and friends of a newly married man, Bernard Peter Agada, have been thrown into mourning as the groom reportedly died three weeks after his wedding.
Posts on his Facebook page revealed that he got married to his wife, Gift Itodo on December 30, 2023, in Otukpa, Benue State.
Agada Joseph, who disclosed his demise on Facebook on Monday, wrote, “I don’t know what to say this one too much, #Benaldinho Agada you promised to call me back bro.
“Your wedding was 30th December 2023 not even up to a month. You promised to call me back bro.
“Ben, your big Joe is waiting for the call you promised, for the first time you disappointed me with a rude shock. I won’t go into details about our last conversation about your wedding a few weeks ago when you called me, and I won’t write RIP Ben.”
On Tuesday morning, Joseph posted again, “January 2024 what a month, Lord have mercy on us, what’s the essence of life when after all the struggle and hustle, you die young?
Rest in peace is all we have to say, nothing more. It hurts, less than 48 hours it was #Benaldinho Agada.”
One Moses Asor also posted the demise on Facebook, he wrote in broken English: “#Benaldinho Agada I don’t know if I should tell you congratulations on ur newly wedding or I should tell you REST IN PEACE.
“U have been a very supportive friend, even when we were setting up #Casa Vida u gave me ur contacts to get the best kitchen equipment.
“Last month u just married and now u are no more to even enjoy ur newly married wife. May ur soul find rest bro.”
Commenting on Joseph’s post, one Onoja Ejembi James wrote, “I can’t believe you are gone Ben I can’t say r.i.p to you ben.”
Replying to one of the wedding photos posted by Bernard on Facebook, one Desmond Austin Amanyi also wrote, “Guy please wake up.”
A check on the page of his wife, Bernard Gift Itodo, showed that she had yet to post anything about the demise.
