“Forgive Me”: Nigerian Man Publicly Apologises to His Wife 6 Months after Accusing Her of Infidelity
- A Nigerian man has tendered a public apology to his wife and sought her forgiveness for wrongfully accusing her
- About six months ago, he had questioned the paternity of their son and called out his wife and family members and friends for betraying him
- Mixed reactions have trailed his apology post as people commended him for his courage while urging his wife to forgive him
A Bayelsa youth leader identified as Oroufagha Emomotimi has publicly apologised to his wife, Emomotimi Benedicta, for his irresponsibility.
In a Facebook post on Wednesday, May 10, 2023, the former Assistant Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekeremor Ward blamed the devil, saying it was a fight for supremacy and submission.
According to him, he feared that he was losing her and thought to himself that he would destroy her if he can’t have her.
He appealed to her to forgive him and professed his love for her. His post in part reads:
“What happened was one of the attacks of the devil on our marriage. It was a fight for supremacy and submission. There is always no winner, I learnt.
“I feared that I was already loosing you, and I thought to myself that since I cannot have you, I must destroy you. That was love. The bad side of jealousy I guessed. I couldn’t afford to loose you because of the enormous sacrifices I put into marrying you. In the process of that air strike—battling the air, I insulted the sensibility of fathers, family, friends and fans.”
LIB reported that in December 2022 Oroufagha had called out his wife, family members and friends for betraying him. During that period, he had vowed to find out if he was the biological father of their son.
