Nigerian Gospel artiste Sammie Okposo has suspended himself from all ministry work over allegations and acceptance of infidelity to seek restoration.
The Delta State-born music star took to his Instagram page on Tuesday, January 25, 2022, where he penned the apology.
“I need to bring a very unfortunate incident to your attention as I am not proud of it but that this is the right thing to do. On my recent trip to the USA (Late 2021) I got intimately involved with a lady, knowing that this was not appropriate as a married man and a minister of the gospel.
“I am ashamed and regret my actions as it has caused a lot of pain to my dear wife Ozioma, my family, and I. As I work in making peace with God, repenting and asking for His forgiveness.”
“I am suspending myself from all ministry work until full restoration as this is what is proper and what I know I owe God and His people.
To my wife, Ozioma, I am sincerely sorry I put you through this shameful and embarrassing situation. I broke your trust and disappointed you. Your forgiveness of my moral failure and poor judgment is important to me. I pray I will eventually be able to build back the trust and confidence every single day for the rest of my life,” he appealed.
Okposo’s apology is coming barely 24 hours after an American lady based in Texas known as African Dull accused him of impregnating her.
The lady who spoke to a Youtuber Obodo Naija TV revealed that she met the singer in America when he came to perform and they ‘messed’ around which resulted in her pregnancy.
