Gospel singer Sammie Okposo has been suspended from ministerial work for cheating on his wife, Ozioma.
It all began when Sammie Okposo via his official Instagram confessed he has been having an extramarital affair with a foreign lady.
The gospel artiste revealed that when he embarked on a recent trip to the United States of America (USA), he got intimate with a lady who is now pregnant for him, and it dawned on him that he has broken his marriage vows.
On that note, he publicly apologized to his wife and family for having cheated on them and distanced himself from the gospel ministry.
“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 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 judgment is important to me. I pray I will eventually be able to build back the trust and confidence every single day forth.
“I want to take this moment and apologize to all fathers and mothers of the Faith and ministers of the Gospel for my behavior and moral failure...
“I humbly ask that you continue to pray for me”, he said.
