Gospel singer, Sammie Okposo, has tendered an unreserved apology to his wife and friends for engaging in an extra-marital affair; and for getting the lady pregnant in the process.
“I need to bring a very unfortunate incident to your attention as I am not proud of it but 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 on his Instagram page on January 25, 2022.
He adds that: “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 judgement 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.”
Okposo also apologised to all “fathers and mothers of the faith and ministers of the Gospel” and to everyone who has been a part of his ministry, followed his ministry or who knows him personally.
