The 30 year-old  whose identity was deliberately covered up in the report by Punch, said her then boyfriend (now his husband) knew he had the virus but didn’t let her know and was having unprotected sex with her.

The lovers were last Saturday joined together in holy matrimony at a church in Lafia, the Nasarawa State capital.

“I really appreciate God for making it possible to witness this day alongside my lovely husband. The marriage is an act of God. I thank God He has finally joined us together as husband and wife.

“I pray that the love that binds us together would continue forever and ever in Jesus’ name. I pray that the marriage will be a success. I have forgiven him but he cheated me by hiding the truth that he is HIV positive from me.  If he had told me his HIV status, it’s either I accepted or rejected his marriage proposal. Although I have forgiven him and accepted my fate, sometimes I wish I never met him,” the newlywed bride told the paper.
