The bride was spotted in her beautiful white dress, a hand fan in her hand, and her arms locked into her groom's arms as they quietly walked out of the church building.
Just as the crowd dispersed, the COVID- 19 task force officials confronted the pastors.
To avoid the spread of the deadly coronavirus infection, citizens have been advised to stay away from crowdy places. In fact, a maximum number of 20 people are only permitted to gather in a place with proper adherence to social distancing instruction.
However, the couple and their guests flouted the rule thereby incurring the visitation of the officers who have been tasked with the responsibility of ensuring that people adhere to the laid down rules.
