RAPE COMMENT: Pastor Idahosa apologizes to Pete Edochie
Clergywoman, Laurie Idahosa, has apologised to veteran Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie after she called him out saying that his mother was a victim of rape and a child bride.
WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that Pete ‘Ebubedike’ as he is fondly called in an interview said his 40 years old father at the time married his mother when she was just 15 year old.
”“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 she received on her Instagram comment section.
