May Edochie, the estranged wife of the popular Nollywood actor, has been chastised for sending an anniversary message to Pete Edochie and his wife.
Pete Edochie and his wife celebrated their 53rd wedding anniversary yesterday, October 1st.

“PLS FAM JOINED ME TO CELEBRATE THE GREAT @PETEEDOCHIE AND HIS ADORABLE WIFE. WE ARE GRATEFUL TO THE ALMIGHTY FOR THE GIFT OF LIFE. 53 YEARS AND COUNTING! MAY GOD CONTINUE TO STRENGTHEN YOU BOTH AND GIVE YOU PEACE”.

Recall that Veteran Actor, Pete Edochie stood by May Yul Edochie during the controversy trailing his son, Yul Edochie’s new marriage and the birth of his son.
Pete Edochie was reportedly disappointed that his son, Yul had a child with someone else, after having four children from the legitimate wife of over 16 years, May.
The Veteran Pete Edochie gave Judy Austin an ultimatum and banished her from entering his household.
He said: “I want the whole world and Nigerians to understand that as an Igbo man, I never support my son’s actions and as a statesman, I only recognize his first wife, May as the only authenticated wife of my son, the rest is banished from entering my household” noting that marrying two wives does not confer a manly status on anyone”.
