Popular Nigerian gospel minister, Sammie Okposo has tendered a public apology after getting involved in extra-marital affairs.
Taking to his official Instagram account, the Delta-born singer also apologised to his wife for the embarrassment he might have caused while announcing that he will be taking a break from ministering.
Posting a picture of himself and his wife, he said, “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”, he added.
“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 said.
Okposo’s apology, however, comes barely 24 hours a mystery woman, “African Doll” in an interview with ‘Obodo TV’ accused him of impregnating her.
