Pastor refuses to bless couple who arrived late to wedding

Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that 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.

Reports state that the pastor left the couple waiting for one hour and said he would wed them inside his office at his convenience, not in the church as expected.
