The wedding ceremony of a 107 year old man, Dikam Garba Dabo'ok to Ka Natong in Mangu local government area on Plateau State, came to many as a surprise and may well be the most talked about ceremony for a long time to come.

For the records, Dikam Dab'ok and his bride are not new lovers having been married traditionally for 65 years.

Ka Natong is said to be the last woman standing of the old man's seven wives and with his new status as a born again Christian and an elder in the Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN), Dikam Dabo'ok feels it is right to finally wed the woman the Christian way, after realising that he has been living in sin all those past years.

The wedding ceremony turned out to be a carnival as the children, some of whom have grand-children of their own, turned out in style to give their father a befitting wedding gift.
