Popular clergywoman, Laurie Idahosa, has come out to tender an apology to veteran Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie, following comments she made about his family members.
Days ago, a video interview of the actor had made the rounds on social media and he talked about how his mother got married to his dad at 15.
However, Idahosa who came across the same video had made a comment about the actor’s mother being molested by his dad. She tagged Edochie’s mum as a child bride and victim of molestation.
In her words:
"She was a victim of rape and child bride. She wasn’t respectful of his age, she was scared for her life."
However, the woman of God has now returned to apologise for her comments. According to her, she never intended to embarrass the Nollywood veteran and his family members.
Idahosa added that she also made sure to delete the comment after she realised it might not properly communicate what she intended to pass across.
Watch the apology video as posted on her official page below:
Still in a related story about the actor, Legit.ng previously reported that media personality, N6, slammed fellow journalists who continue to interview the aged Edochie on modern issues.
According to the OAP, Edochie is from an old world and shares his opinions based on his own life experiences. N6 was forced to speak up after the actor’s video on how to deal with cheating husbands generated massive online outrage.
