Takoradi Metropolis on Saturday, April 2, 2016 when a wedding ceremony ended
abruptly after the police stormed the church premises to arrest the groom.
The groom was arrested in connection with a robbery case in the Western region. He is alleged to have robbed Chinese Small Scale Miner of an amount of Gh¢18,000 after
inflicting knife wounds on his left hand.


According to the report, the incident happened just after the couple had just completed
the exchange of vows and were about wearing their rings when two plain-clothed police
officers from Bogoso stormed the place and whisked the bridegroom away after using
one of the invitation cards to confirm his identity

The suspect, Aaron Ackah, 30 was taken to the Prestea in the Western region for
further investigations. Meanwhile, the bride, Rebecca Buah, was reported to have
collapsed after the arrest.
