anglican reverend collapse and dies on the alter during a wedding ceremony

THERE was pandemonium at an Anglican church in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa capital, weekend, when a reverend clergy slumped and died on the pulpit while officiating a wedding programme.

The clergyman (names withheld) who is married with children and hailed from Tombia community in Yenagoa Local Government Area of the state, according to a church member was not known to be sick but was complaining of headache before his tragic death.

According to the church member identified as Mary said: “Our reverend was not known to be sick but was complaining of slight headache before the wedding ceremony . We are at a loss as to what must have happened to him. He was such a nice family man.”

It was gathered that the pandemonium that ensued changed the mood of the wedding programme and temporarily disrupted the wedding proceedings for half an hour before normalcy was restored.
