LAGOS – Photos showing a Chinese man celebrating his wedding to a Nigerian woman came online, telling a story of love overcoming distances and differences.
According to Naija.com, the man, whose name was not identified by the paper, traveled thousands of miles to marry the Muslim girl.
As he was not a Muslim, the man took shahada, Muslims’ declaration of faith, before tying the knot.
The Chinese man was seen dressed in Nigerian male native wear and a cap, usually worn by Muslims.
Other photos showed the groom with his relative and a Nigerian man believed to be a family of the bride.
A Muslim woman is not permitted to marry a non-Muslim man, while a Muslim man is allowed to marry a Christian or Jewish woman.
