25 Soldiers Wed In Army Barrack

Twenty-five soldiers on Monday took their heartthrobs to the altar in a special mass wedding at the 302 Artillery Regiment of the Nigerian Army, Onitsha as part of activities to mark the Easter celebration.

The soldiers and their brides filed up at the St Peter’s Military Church (Anglican) as early as 10 am to take their nuptial vows as the Vicar and officiating Minister, Capt. (Rev) B.G Newton called on the newly wedded couples to always put God first in whatever they do in order to bless their marriage.

Capt. Newton reminded the 25 couples of their responsibilities to the society, adding that since family is the first society, the need to train their children in the fear of God and in accordance to the rules and norms governing the society is apt. He challenged the soldiers and their spouses to take their spiritual lives very seriously as well train their children to obey the laws of the land in order to raise good leaders of tomorrow instead of allowing them to stray from the will of God.

One of the couples Sgt and Mrs. Chindo Larai on behalf of others thanked God for giving them the opportunity to be united in love through wedding and promised to use the new status given to them to make a better society.
