TRAGEDY!! Bride loses her Groom on Penultimate Wedding night

Family members, friends and colleagues of a 32-year old groom named
Yussuf Babatunde Babalola are currently trying to unravel the sudden
death of the young man who was alleged to have been poisoned on the eve
of his wedding.
Investigations revealed that the late Babalola
woke up at about 6.30 a.m. on Thursday, 12 July, 2012, the day he was to
be at the marriage registry, complaining of stomach upset to his bride,

She raised an alarm by calling on his friends when the ailment became
unbearable. By the time he was taken to the hospital two hours later, he
was clinically dead. A source
told P.M.NEWS that one of the doctors told the family that a black
substance was found on his mouth which shows that he might have died of
attempts to speak with the bride who is eight months pregnant proved
abortive as she was said to have been devastated by the groom’s death. Apart
from the registry, the late Yussuf Babalola was said to have also been
planning to hold his engagement ceremony on Saturday, 14 July, 2012 at
the Army Officers’ Mess, Yaba, Lagos and his friends had bought the
traditional aso-ebi for the ceremony. The question on the lips of sympathisers, family members and friends is who killed Yussuf?
