Pastor Idahosa Tenders Public Apology To Pete Edochie Few Days After Saying His Mom Is A Rape Victim

Few days ago, popular Nollywood Veteran actor, Pete Edochie was the trending topic of social media platforms after his interview with an online TV station "Ada Karl" surfaced online and went viral.

In the video, he talked about his opinions on marriage, how to handle cheating husband and many others things about marriage. He also talked about how his mother got married to his father in the video, he narrated that his father was 40 years old when he married his mother who was 15 years old at that time. While saying that, he laughed and said his mother was very shy at that point but not many people were happy seeing him say that proudly.

On that note, the popular pastor Laurie Idahosa took a swipe on Pete Edochie on her Instagram page and talked down on his mother who got married as a child bride.

According to her, she was a child bride and a victim of rape. She wasn't respectful of his age but was afraid of her life. She continued to tell Pete Edochie to know the difference and adjust his story.

Few days later, Pastor Laurie Idahosa has come out publicly to tender an apology to Pete Edochie over her comments on his mother in the child marriage topic. In a video she released, she said she is sorry to Chief Pete Edochie and his family for the comment she made on Instagram.

She said it was not meant to cause him and his family any embarrassment or harm. When she realised her comments might be interpreted differently from what she intended to communicate, she quickly decided to delete the post but it was too late as people already screen grabbed the post on her page. She concluded by wishing him and his family well and apologized for any embarrassment he may have felt by her comments on his mother.
