The P&P

"Ex-wife disrupts wedding" is a story on page three of the P&P. According to the story, a wedding ceremony at the Presbyterian Church of Resurrection, Makola in Accra, was disrupted when an ex-wife of the groom stormed the church premises with her cohort.

The paper says the woman and her cohort entered the church premises when her ex-husband, Ebenezer Vernon Osabutey and his bride, Christaina Agbenyor was about to exchange marriage vows.

The report said the atmosphere at the church was charged, amidst wielding of sticks by a mob and for the timely intervention of the police, lives would have been lost.

A relative of the groom interviewed by the paper but wants to remain anonymous, alleged that the ex-wife deserted her husband and their two children some years ago when the man lost his job. "Since her departure, it is Christiana who has been catering for the needs of Osabutey and the children".
