Nigerian Pastor who refused to wed a couple because they came late, dies

The pastor who canceled a wedding because the couple were few minutes late to church has died on the same date his wife died.


Pastor Essa Ogorry of Fulfilling Word Foundation Church, Trans Amadi, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, died on Tuesday, February 16, 2021.
His wife, Tonyemieba Essa-Ogorry, also died on the same date a year ago, Feb 16, 2020.
The pastor made headlines recently after he refused to wed a couple for about an hour because they were few minutes late to church on Feb 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.
Tributes have been pouring in for the pastor and his church has released a video of him tagged: “Our cherished moments with Pastor Essa Ogorry.”
A member took to Facebook to claim 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.
