The groom chasing after his bride in Delta
We reported it over the weekend that there was confusion in Delta State on Saturday as a wedding reception ended half-way, following a bride’s pronouncement that she was no longer interested in the few-hours-old marriage.
The 41-year-old jilted groom, simply identified as Julius, is finding it difficult to understand why his ‘wife’ abandoned her marital vows midway into their wedding, shouting ‘I am no longer interested,’ at the wedding reception in Udu Local Government Area of Delta State.
It was gathered that all pleas by the bewildered husband at the popular Orhunwhorhun Road for the woman to reconsider her decision were to no avail as the dazed husband, guests and bridal train ran after the bride, caught up with her at a popular road, where all pleas for her to reconsider her decision and return to the reception venue fell on deaf ears.
The shocking incident which took place on Saturday, October 29, saw the would-be bride, Roseline, 32, disappeared into thin air and all efforts to trace her whereabouts had yielded no result at press time.
Speaking exclusively to Vanguard, a close female confidant of the woman, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said:
“I believe she did what she did because she saw the previous man in her life at the reception. We heard that he had earlier promised to marry the bride, but he later travelled to Lagos and never showed up again.
“When the bride waited for a long time and he (former suitor) was nowhere to be found, she decided to marry another man, who was ready although she still loved her former suitor.
“So when her true love showed up at the reception without notice, the woman saw him and decided to call it quits with her husband to follow her heartthrob.”
