Drama as groom’s ex-girlfriend storms wedding with hefty men, demands ceremony be stopped


A jilted woman, on Saturday, stormed a church during a wedding, seized the microphone from the pastor, accused the groom of dumping her and demanded that the wedding ceremony be stopped immediately.

The incident happened at the International Pentecostal Holiness Church in Benin, the capital city of Edo State.

The enraged woman, whose identity could not be ascertained, was said to have learnt about the wedding ceremony between the man, simply identified as Dele, and his bride , whose name was given as Blessing, via a Facebook post by an unidentified user before the traditional and court wedding ceremonies were held.

Blessing was said to be a caterer by profession.

According to reports, the scorned woman had stormed the church with some hefty-looking men in an Audi car at 6.30am and waited patiently till the wedding ceremony began at 12 pm.

Trouble started when the officiating pastor asked the congregation if anyone knew of any reason for why the couple should not be joined as husband and wife.

At the point when the ring bearer was about handling the ring box to the groom, the self-acclaimed jilted lover matched to the altar, seized the microphone from the pastor and shouted “no! no! this wedding will not hold.”

The shocked pastor was said to have repeated the announcement for the second time, and the light-complexion woman again answered “no” in a thunderous voice, to the bewilderment of the entire congregation.

She further narrated how the groom proposed to marry her in 2017, after a courtship that lasted for seven years, but that the relationship did not produce any child.

The enraged woman told the congregation that she entered into a covenant with Dele before the church altar where he worshipped.

According to her,

“He (Dele) no longer picked my calls. He abandoned me. Why? What did I do to you?”

The new bride who watched helplessly as her joy and hope faded, collapsed on her seat, while Dele, who was clad in a cream-coloured suit on black trousers​ and a pair of glasses, broke down in tears.

Turmoil pervaded the entire neighbourhood, following the suspension of the wedding ceremony by the officiating pastor.

Some of the invitees accused the presiding pastor of failing to carry out a background check on the couple, whereas others blamed the unfortunate incident on the sexual recklessness of the groom.

A member of the church who did not want to be named claimed that the groom was sighted at the birthday celebration of his ex-lover just a few weeks ago.

She added that tears were seen on Dele’s eyes even before the commencement of the wedding ceremony.

According to her,

“The best man who was highly embarrassed by his action, urged him to calm down while he used​ a white handkerchief to wipe away his tears.

“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 thing when your wedding is around the corner?” She queried.

Two hours after the incident, the officiating pastor was allegedly given another directive by the authorities of the church to join the couple who later arrived in a grey-coloured SUV, in holy matrimony.

It’s so annoying

I bought an ASO-EBI for 65k last year December and travelled all the way to Enugu from Lagos for the wedding. Paid my flight tickets to and fro, only for me to hear today that the couples divorced 4days ago!

Marriages don’t last more than 2 years this days, don’t know why. So from now on, anyone who brings ASO-EBI of over 1,500 for me; will sign an agreement with my lawyer….You divorce, you refund me my money with interest!
