What was supposed to begin a memorable love journey between a groom and his bride, turned to be an embarrassment of a lifetime as the groom midway into the ceremony was arrested by police.
The Wedding Ceremony which was held at the Aldersgate Methodist Church at West Anaji in the Sekondi/Takoradi Metropolis on Saturday April 2, 2016 had to end abruptly after policemen besieged the Church’s premises and arrested the groom.
According to the police, the suspect Aaron Ackah 30 was arrested in connection with a robbery case at Aniamote, a popular mining community in the Wassa Amenfi District of the Western Region
He is alleged to have robbed a Chinese Small scale miner of an amount of GH ¢ 18,000 after inflicting multiple knife wounds on the left arm of his victim.
A civilian led the police to the wedding grounds according to Nhyiraba Paa Kwesi Simpson when the couple had just completed exchanging their marital vows.
The officiating minister was just about to usher them into the wearing of ring when two plain-clothed police officers who had been detailed from Bogoso entered suddenly and whisked the groom away after properly identifying himself.
The joy and excitement that had filled the venue of the ceremony was cut short as many of the awe-stricken guests started weeping and wailing.
The bride, Rebecca Buah was reported to have collapsed after the arrest.
The suspect has since been taken to Prestea for further investigations.
