The wedding between one Miss Taiwo Orimoloye and Aboidun Isaac was stalled on Saturday in Ondo town, Ondo State, as the bride, Taiwo allegedly failed to show up for church service.
The reason for the action of the bride was unknown as at the press time but it was gathered that the development caused confusion in both families as all efforts to know the whereabouts of Taiwo by the groom’s family proved abortive.
It was also gathered that all the guests that attended the ceremony were disappointed by the bride’s allegedly disappearance, with many of them in the state of disbelief.
A family source said the couple began wedding ceremony in December 2016 at the residence of bride’s parent as the families of the bride and groom had a traditional introduction ceremony and Saturday, April 9, 2017, was fixed for the church service and reception.
He said there was no premonition that the final part of the wedding would not hold.
A friend of the groom, who did not want his name in the print, explained that all arrangements had been concluded and the church service was to be held at a Celestial Church of Christ in the ancient town but every one was surprised with the alleged disappearance of the bride.
He said, ” All was well with the groom and the bride until Saturday morning when Taiwo failed to turn up for the occasion and since then she has remained incommunicado.”
Another source narrated that the mother of the bride slumped when the news of her daughter’s disappearance was broken to her. She was said to have been rushed to the Ondo State Specialist Hospital, Ondo.
