A close friend of the newly wedded bride, has disclosed why her friend abandoned her newly wedded husband half-way into the reception over the weekend.
According to the friend, who pleaded anonymous, the bride spotted her true love at the reception venue and decided to follow her heartthrob.
“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”.
Recall over the weekend, a 32-year-old bride identified as Josephine, ran away from the reception venue, screaming “I am no longer interested” just few hours after joining her in matrimony with 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 to no avail.
The incident attracted a large crowd, as well as members of their families, who made efforts to settle the matter.
