The bride who allegedly absconded from her wedlock in Ondo town last Saturday, Miss Taiwo Orimoloye has reportedly called her parents from Osogbo, the Osun State Capital.
Taiwo disappointed her husband to-be, family members and many guests including traditional rulers who attended the wedding.
According to The Nation, a resident of Christ Land area in Oka, Ondo, where Taiwo’s parents live, who spoke on condition of anonymity said the absconded bride had called her parents on a different telephone line, informing them of her destination.
According to the resident,
“She has called her parents on a telephone line on Monday where she told them that she was in Osogbo. Her call, as a matter of fact has doused the tension in her family. Everybody in the family is now happy that she is hale and hearty.
“But the reason for taken such an action is still unknown to us and we did not know what she discussed with her parents. Her father has gone to meet her in Osogbo and we believe all is well with her.”
Sources however denied the report that the bride ran away with another man on the fateful day because she wanted to dump her long time future partner.
He said the lady was a good Christian and could not do such a thing.
“We don’t know what actually happened that day, but I am sure Taiwo did not elope with another man, she is a good and devout Christian, she has a good Christian background, her father is a founder of a church, she is not a wayward girl.
“We did not know any other man with her except Abiodun and they have been coming a long way. So the reason for that action is what no one cannot explain but she cannot abscond with another man.” The source said emphatically.
