UYO CHAIRMAN MFON BEN TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE DISRUPTED
Yesterday Saturday 24th June 2017, the traditional marriage ceremony between Barrister Mfon Ben (Transition Chairman of Uyo Local Government Council, Akwa Ibom State and his to wife Mrs Bridget, ended in chaos as residents of Eyulor Oruko, Urueoffong/Oruko, disrupted the well-attended event destroying tents, equipment and other items.
Sources at Eyulor Oruko who pleaded not to be quoted said one of the Uncle to the bride wanted the event to be held in his compound.
His suggestion we learnt meet stiff resistance from Mrs Bridget Mfon Ben as she opposed the Uncle saying the marriage should hold in their late father’s compound since there is an existing building and her mother is alive too.
Another source, a youth from the area who simply wanted to be addressed as ABOY said the Uncle wanted the marriage to be conducted in his shrine , but since it was impossible he believes the Uncle arranged violent youths to destroy chairs ,tents and other items after the traditional marriage.
