Nigeria international Wilfred Ndidi has tied the knot with his long-time girlfriend Dinma Fortune in a traditional ceremony in Abuja.

The couple dazzled in their traditional outfits as they exchanged marital vows in the presence of their families, with the white wedding scheduled to take place soon.

The ceremony had Ndidi's Leicester City teammate Kelechi Iheanacho and his close friends in attendance.

Ndidi is expected to wrap up his wedding plans in time to join the Super Eagles for their Africa Cup of Nations training camp slated to open on June 2 in Asaba.

The three-time African champions will begin their campaign in Egypt against Burundi on June 22, before squaring up against Guinea and Madagascar for their final Group B games on June 26 and 30 respectively.
