Clergywoman, Laurie Idahosa has apologized to veteran actor, Pete Edochie, after she said that his mother was a victim of rape and a child bride.
The cleric stated this in reaction to the veteran’s statement about his 40-year-old dad marrying his mum when she was 15.
Recall that the actor made this disclosure in a recent interview shared on his Instagram page. He added that his mother was shy all through the marriage, even after several kids.
“My mother was not educated. She was not in love with my father. My father was almost 40 when his uncle told him it was time he got married. He told them to get a wife for him.
My uncle went out to a neighboring village and told them the teacher wanted to get married. The women came out. He looked around and picked one and that was it.
He brought this 15-year-old who didn’t have the courage to look at my father. She gave him ten children and was still shy. Seven boys and three girls.”
The clergywoman was horrified by his statement and left a comment on LIB’s Instagram page. According to Pastor Idahosa, his mum was a victim of rape and was a child bride.
“How can he laugh about her being “shy?”
Oga, she was not shy. She was a victim of rape and was a child bride. She wasn’t respectful of his age, she was afraid for her life. Know the difference and adjust this story… start telling the truth!”
The clergywoman has now tendered an apology to Pete Edochie for her statement, adding that it was misinterpreted.
