A wedding Ceremony was disrupted on Saturday in Benin City by a strange woman who accused the groom, Mr Dele of jilting her for his bride.
It was learnt that the bride simply identified as Blessing collapsed when the woman who claimed to be ex-lover of the groom, walked up to the presiding Priest, pick up a microphone and announced to the congregation and demanded that the wedding be stopped.
The ex-lover whose identity is unknown, recalled how she “entered into a covenant with Dele who proposed to marry her before the church alta” where Dele worship in 2017 before the sudden twist and thorns of event during the seven years of their courtship which did not produce any Child.
The incident occurred at International Pentecostal Holiness church in Benin City where guests lamented the sexual recklessness of the groom against the wish of the bride who is a Caterer.
It was gathered that the young lady who stormed the church with security personnel in on Audi car at about 6:30 in the morning, were ushered to their seats, ahead of the wedding which began at 12pm on Saturday.
Private guards and Protocol officers who manned the main entrance of the church could not prevent the angry woman who denounced the culture of secrecy by the Couple.
Trouble started when the Officiating Pastor of the church announced before the congregation if there was anyone who does not want the Couple to be joined as husband and wife? Dele’s ex-lover raised up her and said the Couple should not be joined. Dele
who was clad in a cream colour suit atop black trouser and a pair of glasses, quipped.
Upon sensing danger ahead, the pastor repeated the announcement for the second time before a thunderous No response from the light skin Dele’s former fiancee reportedly put the congregation in quandary.
According to strange woman, he (Dele) no longer pick my calls. He has abandoned me. Why? What did I do to you?”, she asked in amazement.
While the ring bearer was about to open the open the box and hand it over to the Groom for the conjugal, the Dele’s ex-lover jumped up and shouted No! No! This wedding will not hold. I warned both of you before and you did not hear!”, she said.
Dele’s former fiancee declared that she did not come to disrupt the church, but to prevail on Dele to take her to the altar to break the covenant he entered with him in 2017 before he continue the wedding.
It was gathered that after disrupting the marriage, Dele former waited for about an hour before he was escorted away by a team of security operatives, amid wailing by worshippers, guests and residents in the area.
Normalcy however returned after the authorities of the church called the pastor to suspend the wedding.
As at 2pm on Saturday, the presiding pastor got another directive to join the Couple who arrived in a steaming grey colour Spot Utility vehicle (SUV) in holy matrimony.
The development triggered excitement among members of the church, friends and well-wishers of the Celebrants who accused the presiding Priest of failing to carryout a background check on the Couple.
A member of the church said, he was surprised to see tears dropped fro Dele’s eyes when the Ceremony was yet to begin.
She said, his “Best man who was highly embarrassed by his action, urged him to calm down while he use a white handkerchief to wipe away his tears.
She hinted further that “Dele attended her birthday few weeks ago. It will surprise you to know that Dele was still going to see that girl at home. Why will you do such such thing when your wedding is around the corner.
“Where you call that love or jealousy, that is wrong. The pastor was also wrong to have asking if there is anybody in the congregation who does not want the Couple to be joined”, she said.
Our Correspondent reports that Dele pastor had turned down Dele’s request to wed Blessing, hence the venue of the wedding was changed, promoting Dele’s pastor to shun the Ceremony.
It was also gathered that Dele’s ex-lover got to know about Dele’s wedding invitation via a Facebook past by unidentified User before the traditional and court wedding Ceremonies were held.
