Reverend Later Apologizes But Groom’s Best-Man Felt Wounded Already After Disgrace When Driven Out Of Church For Wearing Earrings To Friends Wedding Ceremony.
It was later revealed that the reverend who drove the groom’s bestman out of the church ground for putting on earrings to his friend’s wedding ceremony, later apologized for the public embarrassment he baptized Opeyemi with.
The apology came after the groom’s bestman, Opeyemi had stayed outside the church for hours till the end of the wedding ceremony which eventually deprived him of discharging his duty to which he was contacted, prepared and came for.
It would be right to say that the apology did not go well with the victim but could not let his feelings known at that moment due to the respect he had for the clergyman which led him into faking a smile in a captured photo with him and the said reverend. This he did not to ruin the happiest day of his beloved friend.
While expressing how he felt after the event had ended, the embarrassed groom’s bestman took to his social media handle to drag the Baptist Church Reverend and Christiandom as a whole.
Inline with this, reactions have started trailing the media space as to the right and wrong aspect of this incident which took place on Saturday, 2nd of October, 2021 at Baptist Church, Isolo area of Lagos State.
