When it comes to love, there are things that happen that people really marvel and ask if it is actually true. A young Nigerian lady who happens to be in love with her old time primary school mate shared her story on her facebook page on how the whole story started.

Lara Akinyemi and Niyi Okunbajo both attended Grait Children School,Otta in 1997. After graduation, they lost contact but as fate would have it, they finally reunited in 2009 through facebook. They started a  relationship and are getting ready for their wedding celebration.

In her post, she wrote,”I don’t really know how to write these types of stories, I will just struggle. Our love story started on Facebook!!  Believe it or not.

“In the afternoon of September  2009, I was in med school then, got a message from an old primary school mate (couldn’t even remember him).  I had 2 confirm from my class pics.

“I almost never reply FB [messages] especially from strangers; don’t even read them most times.

“We started talking, apparently he had been sending messages 2 all the Lara Akinyemi’s without profile pictures on FB because he had just me in mind since he was a pupil (he had eye for something good since childhood and was in love since 1990 something, bad child haha hahaha.)

“The rest is history because the story is still long oo… I’m getting married to my long term boo.  I don’t know how to say those romantic things like you’re my cockroach in my cupboard, skeleton in my wardrobe etc #LaraNiyi2016″

They have so much bonded together that their love has been taken to the next level as they get ready to tie the knot. Although Lara did not specify the particular date for the wedding but it surely must be a very interesting one.
