The pastor who canceled a wedding because the couple were few minutes late to church has died on the same date his wife died.
The pastor identified as Essa Ogorry of Fulfilling Word Foundation Church, Trans Amadi, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, died on Tuesday, February 16, 2021.
The pastor’s wife identified as, Tonyemieba Essa-Ogorry, also died on the same date a year ago, February 16, 2020.
Recall that the clergyman made headlines recently after he refused to wed a couple for about an hour because they were few minutes late to church on February 6, 2021. This led to an altercation between church members and the wedding guests/couple, and ended in the couple wedding in a hotel with a different pastor standing as officiating minister.
Friends and church members have taken to social media to mourn the pastor and his church has released a video of him tagged: “Our cherished moments with Pastor Essa Ogorry.”
One of his church member took to Facebook to claim that the pastor was sick and came from Lagos to Port Harcourt for the wedding, which is why he was strict with the couple when they arrived late.
