A tragic incident occurred on Thursday December 12, as a 16-year-old bride drowned in a well while preparing for her wedding.

The bride identified as Fatima Abubakar, drowned in a well located at the home of her cosmetologist and sister at Gajaja community in Danbatta Local Government Area of Kano State.

Sharing his grief with BBC Hausa Service, father of the deceased said relatives and friends who gathered to celebrate with his daughter are now mourning her.

Mr Abubakar said;

Now we are pleading with Hajiya Lami (the cosmetologist) whom the incident occurred at her residence. She is also a sister to the late bride. She is unconscious and unable to eat.

Fatima's younger brother, Labaran who spoke to newsmen disclosed that they live in Babura local government of Jigawa State but decided to hold the wedding at Danbatta in neighbouring Kano State.

i believe she never wanted a forced marriage,hence she committed sucide!No justification,but parents take note mot for material things you stand to gain,stop forced marriages.
