Pastor Laurie Idahosa of Church of God Mission has blasted veteran actor Pete Edochie for saying his mother was a bride at age 15.

Pete Edochie

The 74-year-old actor in a now-viral interview shared that his mother was 15 when she got married to his teacher father who was 40.

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,” he said.

 

“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.”

 

While reacting to Edochie’s comment, Idahosa said the actor’s mum was a child-bride and a victim of r*pe.

 

“How can he laugh about her being “shy?” Oga, she was not shy. She was a victim of r**e 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!” she tweeted.

The veteran actor in the interview also advised women to creatively adopt ways to discourage their husbands from cheating.

“Solomon had 1000 wives and 700 concubines. If a man decides to take many more wives, what are you going to do? Nothing. If you think your husband is going out to have an affair, put a packet of condoms in his bag. When he sees it, he’ll know you have his interest at heart,” he said.

 

Meanwhile, Pete Edochie is not a stranger to dropping controversial views on marriages. In 2020 the actor shared his disgust for men who kneel down to propose to their partners. According to him, the act is highly forbidden in Igbo tradition and should be discouraged.
