Over the weekend, a bride and groom experienced something really tragic during their wedding ceremony at Takoradi Aldersgate Methodist Church in the Sekondi/Anaji, Ghana, as the groom was arrested by police officers. It all started when some policemen stormed the church’s premises and arrested the Groom over a robbery case at Aniamote, a community in the Wassa Amenfi District in the Western region. The 30-year-old suspect Aaron Ackah, reportedly robbed a Chinese Small Scale Miner of an amount 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’ Western regional correspondent, Emmanuel Ohene Gyan that the couple had just completed the exchange of vows and were about wearing 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 bride, Rebecca Buah, was reported to have collapsed after her groom was arrested. The suspect has since been taken to Prestea for further investigation.
