A bride refused to show up at her wedding at
the Cathedral Church of Emmanuel, Okesa,
Ado-Ekiti, on Saturday resulting in the
cancellation of the wedding.
Our correspondent learnt that the groom, who
is from Ifaki-Ekiti in Ido-Osi Local Government
Area of the state, was already in the church
but waited in vain for the arrival of his bride.
Her whereabouts were unknown hours after
the service had started.
The failure of the bride to show up, it was
gathered, forced the clerics to cancel the
wedding and invited guests reportedly left
one after the other, when it dawned on them
that the ceremony would no longer hold.
The Dean of the Cathedral, Very Reverend,
F.O Bankole, when contacted on the
telephone confirmed the incident to our
He said, "It is true that a wedding which was
planned to hold in the church today was
cancelled. The bride did not show up."
Bankole said he did not know why the bride
failed to showed up, but added that the
couple had been "having some issues since
they started courting."
