Orobosa Igbinedion and Umar Mantu just had their wedding in Abuja yesterday. It was a grand event as the couple are from different regions in Nigeria and there was a rich cultural display.
The groom is the son of former deputy Senate President Ibrahim Mantu, while the bride is the daughter of the Esama of Benin kingdom,Chief Gabriel Igbinedion. There were lots of royalty and political elite at the event.
The wedding featured a Durbar which was a 300-horse procession where the groom and his men rode from Asokoro to Maitama, the bride’s family home. The bride joined the groom and both of them rode on camels.
For their wedding dinner, she wore a Ralph & Russo dress, while her maids of honour Nenesi Ibru and Tania Omotayo were also decked in fashionable dresses.
There will be a wedding finale in Johannesburg, South Africa very soon.
