Confusion rocked the Great Salvation Christian Centre, aka Father’s Church, on Ako Aro Road, in the Ifako-Ijaiye area of Lagos State, on Saturday after a man disrupted an ongoing wedding in the church.
The man, identified as Iberemu Osadebe claimed that the bride, Gloria, was his wife. PUNCH Metro gathered that Osadebe had a traditional wedding with Gloria after they had a son together.
He, however, became sick for about five years, and at that time sold most of his property to seek a cure.
The Imo State indigene was said to have later travelled to his hometown in Isiala Mbano, where he continued the treatment.
It was gathered that he was on the sickbed when he received information that his wife of 20 years would be getting married to another man on Saturday, August 29, 2020.
The 43-year-old was said to have developed high blood pressure, which affected his speech.
He returned to Lagos on Friday, a day to the wedding, and reported his plan to disrupt the wedding at the Agbado Police Station.
Upon arriving in the church around 11 am, some of the church leaders, who recognized him, appealed to him to let the matter go, which he rejected.
The church’s pastor was about to join the new couple when Osadebe’s family members marched to the pulpit and revealed that the woman was already married and could not be joined in holy wedlock.
Security guards on the premises, however, bundled them out of the church, as pandemonium broke out in the assembly.
The guards later mounted a defense at the church’s entrance, while Osadebe and his family protested and demanded an end to the ceremony.
