Wife of Bishop Faith Idahosa of the Church of God Mission International, Reverend Laurie Idahosa, has reacted to the recent interview granted by veteran actor, Pete Edochie where he disclosed that his father who was 40 years old, married his mum when she was 15 and that she was shy all through their marriage.
Edochie in his interview said his mother was not in love with his father and did not have the courage to look at his eyes but gave him 10 children.
He had 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 have the courage to look at my father.
“She gave him 10 children and was still shy. Seven boys and three girls.”
But Idahosa was disgusted by his comment and left her remarks on her Instagram page.
According to her, Edochie’s mother was simply a victim of rape and a child bride.
She wrote, ”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!”
