A wedding ceremony at Aldersgate Methodist Church in the Sekondi/Takoradi Metropolis, on Saturday, ended abruptly, after policemen besieged the church’s premises and arrested the bridegroom.
The arrest is in connection with a robbery case at Aniamote, a community in the Wassa Amenfi District in the Western region.
The suspect, Aaron Ackah,30, is alleged to have robbed a Chinese small scale miner of Gh¢18,000, after inflicting knife wounds on his left hand.
A civilian, who led the police to the wedding venue at West Anaji, told Starr News, the couple had just completed the exchange of vows, and were about to wear their rings when two plain-clothed police officers from Bogoso stormed the place and whisked the bridegroom away after using one of the invitation cards to confirm his identity.
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 of her would-be husband.
Ackah has been transferred to Prestea for further investigation.
