- A marriage ceremony was called off prematurely at Port Harcourt in Nigeria because the couple arrived late
- In a video making waves on social media, the family and guests made all attempts to convince the pastor to officiate the event, but he had none of it
- The couple had to get another priest to bless their union in a hotel
Drama ensued during the wedding of a couple at Port Harcourt in Nigeria after the pastor who was to officiate the marriage ceremony refused to do so.
In a report posted along with the footage that was sighted by Legit.ng on the Instagram handle of Nigeriacamera, everything appeared to be out of control.
All attempts were being made by the couple and guests to get the event back in session, but the church officials would have none of that, simply because the couple reportedly arrived five minutes late.
See the footage below:
Reports have it that the pastor left the couple waiting for one hour and said he will wed them at his own convenience inside his office, not in the church as expected.
At some point, it is indicated that the bride broke down in tears while the groom tried to console her outside the church building with no success.
Finally, the official photographer of the event gave an update that the couple got another person to serve as their officiating priest in a hotel.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a man with the Twitter handle @BrotherMighty came on Twitter to talk about how his life changed in about three decades.
He said that the same pastor who officiated his wedding in 1993 did the same thing for his daughter many years after.
The man shared a throwback photo of the clergyman in a talking-pose as he was about slipping a ring on his wife's finger. In the second frame, the man's daughter and her partner kneeled as the same pastor prayed for them.
