Tragedy as groom dies at wedding reception Posted by: Mikail Mumuni October 21, 2019 Leave a comment There was pandemonium on Saturday, October 19th, 2019, at a wedding reception held Amasiri Secondary School, Amasiri in Afikpo North Local Government Area of Ebonyi as the bride groom identified as Dr Chukwuemeka Thompson Onwuka slumped and died. The wedding had earlier been solemnized at St. James Presbyterian Church, Amasiri Parish after which Onwuke, his bride Marie Onyiyechi Amadi, their families and guests moved to the reception venue. Soon after the reception kicked off however, the groom slumped and died despite spirited efforts to revive him. The deceased was a graduate of Abia State University, Uturu, the same institution attended by the bride. In a poetic Facebook post on October 12, 2019, announcing the ill-fated wedding and reception, Chukwuemeka Thompson Onwuka wrote: Oh I could have chosen any from among the vast multitude who followed! But this Divinely Destined #DamselOfLife is my beloved Dove—unrivaled in beauty, without equal, beyond compare, the perfect one, the favorite one. Others see your beauty and sing of your joy. Brides and Queens chant your praise: “How blessed is she!” Dear Friends Please, SAVE THIS DATE and MAKE SURE YOU’RE THERE! 19TH OCTOBER 2019! @ST. JAMES PCN Amasiri Parish, Ebonyi State 2019-10-21 Mikail Mumuni Share !
