True friendship is a bond that can last for a lifetime. Two male cousins from Nigeria have shown their country what it truly means to be friends with someone who is considered to be a sister or brother.

The cousins showed the extent of their bond as they tied the knot on the same day. The cousins said their 'I dos' to the women of their dreams in Delta state on Saturday, 27 April.

Due to religious restrictions, the two had to have their weddings at different churches. One had hers at a Christ Apostolic Church and the other had hers at a Redeemed Christian Church of God.
