On his Instagram account, Edochie wrote, “Speaking about forgiveness. I forgive him completely. It hurts deeply when a friend you love, took like a brother, stood for, and shown love over the years turns around to stab you in the back repeatedly without remorse.

“Sadly, that’s the world we live in. Humans are filled with flaws. To err is human, to forgive is divine. I forgive him and wish his family the very best.”
