Church members and wedding guests in a Port Harcourt church engaged in a verbal fight after the pastor refused to wed a couple because they arrived 5 minutes late to church.
The pastor despite the pleas of the couple, refused to wed them as he went to office while stating that the couple did not come on time.
After waiting for almost one hour, the pastor later said he will wed the couple inside his office and not in the church as expected.
The devastated bride was seen crying about the situation while the groom tries to console her outside the church building.
This led to a clash as church members who were apparently defending the pastor and th guests of the couple.
The wedding photographer shared the video of the incident on social media. He wrote: “Annoying events at the wedding I was covering today in PH
“The couple came 5 minutes late and pastor left the church, kept us for 1 hour and said he’ll join them in his office after returning
“Some pastors are feeling like God.”
Giving an update to the situation, the couple reportedly got another pastor to serve as their officiating priest in a hotel, since the exchange of vows could not hold in the initial pastor’s church.
“Wedding done back at the hotel with a stand in pastor,” the photographer updated.
