A Groom has lost his parents and siblings to a fatal car accident few hours after they attended his wedding.
The accident occurred at the tollgate along Glory Land drive in Igbogene axis of Yenagoa, the state capital on Saturday, December 4.
According to eyewitnesses, the bus which the deceased passengers boarded collided with an oncoming vehicle returning from Warri in Delta state.
The vehicles were reportedly trying to divert to the East-West road when the unfortunate incident happened, according to witnesses.
A friend of the family, Yekwe Bouperekumo took to facebook to share photos from the crash scene and wrote ;
My thoughts and Prayers are with Comr Yenagoa Samson Pereakpo and Pharm Kelvin Keme Yenagoa who lost their parents and other family members in a painful auto crash along the Glory Land Drive, after just attending the wedding ceremony of the latter.
I equally sympathize with the family of the two brothers, as well as other families whose family members were involved in the irksome accident, which so far has claimed 9 lives.
While I pray for the departed souls to rest in peace, I also pray for quick recovery to those with various degrees of injury who are receiving treatments in various healthcare facilities.
May the almighty God strengthen all the bereaved families, and grant them the fortitude to bear this loss.
