Confusion At Marriage Ceremony

Drama unfolded at a wedding ceremony at Nankese-Trio, in the Suhum municipality of the Eastern Region Saturday afternoon which resulted in the death of the groom’s grandmother.

The woman, Hajia Adizah, 68, collapsed and died later at the Suhum Government Hospital.

DAILY GUIDE investigations gathered that Hajia Adizah, grandmother of Denteni Kasim (the groom), allegedly led some family members from Kibi to disrupt the matrimony after hearing that the man had engaged different family members to represent his biological family at the ceremony as his family was said to be opposed to the marriage.

The paper learnt that members of the family of the groom, who are Muslims, opposed the marriage between Kasim and the supposed bride, Joyce Tetteh Amaniyo, a Krobo and Christian.

Due to that the groom, a mechanic at Suhum-Kofigya, allegedly brought in the different family and decided to do the wedding without the involvement of his own family.

According to sources, when the ceremony had reached its climax -exchange of vows – the family of the groom stormed the venue in an attempt to disrupt the ceremony, and confusion ensued which led to the exchange of blows, leading to the destruction of some plastic chairs and canopies.

Hajia Adizah, who reportedly led the family to the venue, purportedly screamed at his grandson, collapsed in the process and was rushed to the hospital but was pronounced dead before her arrival.

The family, as Islamic custom demands, led by Alhaji Adamu of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Abuakwa South constituency, later went for the body and buried it at Kibi.
