A friend to a newly wedded bride, who took off from her wedding reception half-way in Delta State at the weekend, has disclosed what led to the drama.
The 32-year-old bride, simply identified as Josephine, sparked confusion among guests on Saturday when she disrupted her wedding reception half-way, following her pronouncement that she was no longer interested in the few-hours-old marriage.
DAILY POST had reported that the bride, who ran away from the reception venue, screaming “I am no longer interested” was given a hot chase by her 41-year-old husband.
The incident, which occurred at Udu Local Government Area of Delta State, created serious scene in the Orhunwhorhun road area as the husband was seen begging his bride to reconsider her decision; but all pleas by the bewildered husband for his bride to reconsider her decision, were to no avail.
The incident attracted a large crowd, as well as members of their families, who made frantic efforts to settle the matter.
Following the bizarre incident, a close friend of the bride told Vanguard that she (the bride) saw her true love at the reception venue and decided to follow her heartthrob.
As at the time of filing this report, Roseline, has since disappeared into thin air and all efforts to trace her whereabouts have reportedly yielded no result.
The friend, who pleaded not to be mentioned, told the newspaper: “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 traveled 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.”
Asked about her whereabouts, the unnamed friend was quoted to have simply said, “she is fine”.
