A rather bizarre incident occurred during a wedding ceremony that was held in Akwa Ibom State recently.
It was gathered that the groom, identified as Mr. Solomon Etim Usanga, from Ini Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State, was taking his wedding vows with his bride when his ex-lover, with whom he has a child, stormed the venue with their child.
The baby’s mother, who is said to have attended the wedding solely to abandon the child with the father, went to the altar and dropped the baby in an offering bowl the groom was carrying.
A photo from the event that’s gone viral shows the baby inside the offering bowl the groom was carrying while his bride stood beside him.
Sharing the photo online, a Facebook user Ofonime Honest wrote,
