Laurie Idahosa apologises to Edochie for saying his mother was a child bride

THE daughter-in-law of late bishop Benson Idahosa and clergywoman, Laurie Idahosa, has tendered an apology to Pete Edochie after she said that the veteran actor’s mother was a victim of rape and a child bride.

This comes after the veteran actor, Pete Edochie in a recent interview revealed his 40-year-old dad married his mum when she was only 15-years-old and terribly shy all through their marriage.

In an interview, Pete said, “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 neighbouring 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 dare 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.

She said, ”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!”

However, the Clergywoman has now apologised for her comment following the backslash it received on her Instagram comment section. She said she didn’t mean harm with the statement and pleaded with the actor to not take what was said to heart.
