A groom in Nigeria, was shocked to be dumped on the wedding day by his bride after she learned that he didn’t graduate from college.
Bride Ifunanya Igwebuike shocked her family and her fiance, Ekene Uzoigwe, when she did not show up at the wedding venue on Saturday.
Guests and family members were waiting for the bride at the St. Patrick Catholic Church in Umuchu, when the pastor received a text message from Igwebuike, saying that she no longer wants to marry Uzoigwe.
Igwebuike told the pastor that she cannot marry a dropout since she did graduate from college. Guests and the family members were surprised when the pastor announced the decision of the bride.
Uzoigwe expressed his shock at the turn of events, saying that he paid for Ifunanya’s college education. Uzoigwe also said that he gave the bride’s parents N160,000 ($875) to prepare for the wedding.
