A Nigerian couple-to-be have had their wedding allegedly cancelled by their pastor for eating from the same plate a week to their wedding day.

A Twitter user identified as @realoladele shared details of the rather strange happening. According to him, the couple were set to wed on June 9 and held their traditional wedding on June 8. During the course of the traditional wedding, they got a text saying that their wedding set to hold the next day had been suspended.

Further more, the couple were placed on ‘discipline’ by the pastor. The incident is said to have occurred at Depper Life Church in Bayelsa and the all arrangements made by the couple for the wedding day got wasted.

Oladele alleged that the bride has lost her cool and is now being attended to by a psychiatrist. It was also said that the couple’s parents visited the pastor and pleaded that the wedding should be held but he refused on the basis that the couple ate from the same plate before they were joined in holy matrimony and for that reason have to be punished.
