A young lady In Ibesikpo Asutan Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State (name withheld by me) whose pre-wedding pictures had trended on social media, slumped this evening on the day of her traditional marriage as her biological father canceled the TM in a broad daylight.

As early as 4 pm today, family members and friends of the bride and her husband-to-be, who came from far and near, had thronged the Government Primary School, venue of the traditional marriage, which is a stone’s throw from the State Police Command’s Headquarters.

The live band was performing, entertaining guests while waiting for the commencement of the traditional rites.

But to the surprise of everyone, the bride’s father walked into the arena and insisted that the traditional marriage would not hold because his son-in-law was owing to him an N70,000 bride price balance.

On hearing of her dad’s action, the bridge collapsed with her friends battling to revive her, and the traditional marriage ended in a fiasco.
