Clergywoman, Laurie Idahosa, has reacted to veteran actor, Pete Edochie’s interview where he disclosed that his 40-year-old father married his mum at the age of 15.
Pete Edochie in an interview said his mother was picked among several other women at age 15 and did not have the courage to look at his father.
Even after giving birth to seven boys and three girls, she was still shy with his father.
”“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, Ms Idahosa who was appalled by his comment, left her remarks on LIB’s Instagram page. According to her, his mum was a victim of rape and a child bride.
” 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!”
