Osaze Peter Odemwingie has apologised to Kanu Nwankwo, his wife Amara Kanu and their family after making certain accusations.
The former professional footballer had accused his colleague’s wife, Amara Kanu of “chasing” him “relentlessly”, sending him DMs and “harassing” him to respond. He asked why a wife should be sending him DMs directly instead of through her husband and threatened that “destruction is upon her” for sliding into his DM (read here).
He also called out her son for throwing up a particular hand sign.
He has now apologized. In his apology, he shared a screenshot of a message Kanu Nwankwo sent to him a few months ago to wish him well on his birthday.
He explained that their relationship had been OK just a few months ago.
He added that he misunderstood and read meanings into Amara Kanu’s greetings then blamed the media for bringing a “different narrative” to what he said.
He also pointed out that Amara is a “lovely woman”.
However, referring to the hand sign their son displayed in the photo he posted to call the family out, Osaze insisted that, “We can do things innocently and wear cloths with signs and symbols we don’t understand but indirectly representing them.”
Sharing a series of photos and videos talking about religion, moral decadence, and more, he wrote:
Picture two shows where my relationship with my Big bro @kingkanu4 was just few months ago. I was misunderstood, acted out of anger or reading too much into the greetings. I am on same page with Gods people who think the type of liberty they talking about is not good for the world. We can do things innocently and wear cloths with signs and symbols we don’t understand but indirectly representing them. PRESS BROUGHT A DIFFERENT NARRATIVE INTO THE MATTER BUT MAYBE DOWN TO LACK OF CLARITY OF WHAT UPSET ME. I MET @amarakanu once at Watford stadium during the charity match for Kanu heart foundation and she seemed to be a lovely and humble person. APOLOGIES AGAIN FOR ANY OFFENCE. HAD NOTHING TO DO with THE KANU FAMILY BUT RATHER THE INFLUENCE OF AMERICAN CULTURE ON OUR YOUTHS ( and possibly even some of our politicians who will go to any lengths to live the American dream Mark 8:36). Don’t know if such thing exists as too curious about life but if it does and it’s an offence then I plead guilty . MAY THE LORD GRANT US WISDOM #amen James 1

1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ,
To the twelve tribes scattered among the nations:
Trials and Temptations
2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. #nigeria #love #respect #forgiveness #jesusislord Philippians 4:8
