Preparations were on top gear for the wedding of Kunle Oladowole, a marketing officer with a drug firm in Akure and his heartthrob, Miss Bukola Omotoso, and both families had already invited people from far and near to grace the ceremony.
But barely 48 hours to the wedding, on Thursday May 31, the unexpected happened. The groom went missing and all efforts by family and friend to locate him failed.
As usual, the intending couple had set aside Friday, June 1, for the engagement ceremony at the bride’s family house in the Ido-Ani area of Ondo State, before the wedding proper. From what Olufamous.com gathered, the groom went out with a few friends to have some drinks but failed to return home.
Efforts to get him on his mobile phone proved abortive. To the surprise of the families, after 24 hours of frantic search, Kunle (the missing groom) called his family and informed them that he had been kidnapped and that his captors were holding him somewhere in Cross River State.
The family is now in confusion as his kidnappers were said to be demanding a ransom of N3 million if they ever want to see their soon again.
Hmmm.... Wedding on suspension!
