Gospel music singer, Sammie Okposo has released a statement admitting to having extramarital affairs.
This comes barely 24 hours after a US-based woman, identified as African Doll, in an interview with Obodo Oyibo TV claimed she is pregnant for the singer.
African Doll disclosed how she informed the singer of the pregnancy and he asked her to abort the pregnancy after that he ghosted her by blocking her on all social media platforms.
Sammie Okposo, in his statement on Tuesday, January 25, 2022, admitted to the affair apologising to his wife, family and body of Christ.
“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,” Okposo wrote.
“I am ashamed and regret my actions as it has caused a lot of pain to my dear wife Ozioma, my family, and I (sic). As I work in making peace with God, repenting and asking for His forgiveness.”
The Delta State-born singer went on to announce that he’ll be taking a break from the ministry work to seek restoration.
“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,” he added.
He then tendered an apology to his wife, Ozioma for the disgrace and embarrassment his actions caused.
“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.
