file photoA wedding ceremony in Takoradi ended abruptly after policemen besieged the premises and arrested the bridegroom.

The event was being held at the Aldersgate Methodist Church at West Anaji in the Sekondi/Takoradi Metropolis on Saturday April 2, 2016

The arrest is in connection with a robbery case at Aniamote, a community in the Wassa Amenfi District in the Western Region.

The suspect, Aaron Ackah is alleged to have robbed a Chinese Small scale miner of an amount of 18,000 Ghana cedis after inflicting knife wounds on his left hand.

A civilian who led the police to the wedding venue says the couple had just completed the exchange of vows and the officiating minister was just about to usher them into the wearing of rings when two plain clothed police officers who had been detailed from Bogoso entered suddenly and whisked the bridegroom away after using one of the invitation cards to confirm his identity.

The joy and excitement that had filled the venue of the ceremony was cut short as many of the awe stricken guests started weeping and wailing.

The bride, Rebecca Buah was reported to have collapsed after the arrest.

The suspect, Aaron, 30, has since been taken to Prestea for further investigation.
