Laurie Idahosa has apologised to Pete Edochie for claiming that the veteran actor’s mother was a rape survivor and a child bride.
Pete said in an interview that his father married his 15-year-old mother when he was 40 years old, despite the fact that she was very shy.
”“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”.
Reacting to the interview, Mrs Idahosa, the pastor said that Pete’s mother was a product of rape, said that Pete’s mother was afraid of her life.
” 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!”
Meanwhile, the Clergywoman has now apologised for her comment following the backslash he received on her Instagram comment section.
