Mr. Rufus Aplang, has thrown many into confusion in Jos, the Plateau state capital, as he walked out on alter during marriage vows.
Aplang who was dressed to the church with his best man, families, and relatives, shocked the church that was full of the congregation to witness their wedding, when the Pastor of the church, located around NTA Jos, asked him to make a marriage vow.
Aplang was asked on the altar by the pastor, do you take Judith as your wife for batter for worse, he replied no, the pastor repeated, do you take Judith as your wife for better for worse, he replied, “Pastor, I hear, and understand English very well, I said no”
Then the pastor asked him, but you are dressed and came ready for the wedding, he replied, “sorry, I made up my made 10 years ago to disgrace her”
As soon as he said that, he walked out of the alter, and was followed by his best man and his friends who drove out of the church premises.
WAR learned that Judith, the lady he was to get married to, collapsed inside the church and was taken to a private hospital around Plateau State Polytechnic.
Mr. Peter Sani, a best man to Aplang, who narrated the incident to WAR, said that was the embarrassing moment of his life.
“Aplang has been a childhood friend, Ruth has been a friend and sister too, he dated her for over 12 years, I was in the church to serve as a best man, and also as a fulfilled man having witnessed their wedding, but I was shocked and embarrassed by what happened in the church today,” he said.
“This is not ordinary, Aplang confides in me on any issue, if he had the plan to walk out on the altar, I am very optimistic he would have told me, what happened today is unimaginable, I came out of the church shaking and weeping” he added.
