A popular pastor in Nigeria declined to join couple in holy matrimony on Saturday because they arrived at the wedding venue 5 minutes late.
Despite pleas, Senior Pastor Essay Oggory left the couple waiting for hours and told them he will wed them at his own convenient time.
Overwhelmed by the situation, the bride burst into tears at the premises of Fulfilling World Foundation Church in Port Harcourt, Rivers State. The groom tried to console her outside the church building.
The congregation including friends and family of the bride and groom were equally shocked by the pastor’s reaction.
There was total confusion as those defending the pastor’s action clashed with others who were on the side of the heartbroken couple.
Kasatintin.com has gathered that the bride’s uncle quickly called in another pastor to officiate the wedding ceremony. However, the couple exchanged their vows in the hotel room they had booked for their honeymoon.
‘Wedding done back at the hotel with a stand in pastor’, a photographer said in a post.
