Popular Nollywood actor Yul Edochie has announced that he has forgiven his late colleague, Junior Pope, for allegedly backstabbing him.

Recently, Yul accused the late actor of betraying him despite considering him a brother and close friend, and supporting him during difficult times.

Yul also admitted that he didn’t mourn Junior Pope because of this alleged betrayal.

His statements, however, sparked backlash, including criticism from his aunt, Rita Edochie, who chastised him for harboring grudges against the deceased.

Nonetheless, Yul stated that while he has forgiven Junior Pope, he remains deeply hurt by the betrayal.

Via his Instagram page he 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. Humans are filled with flaws. To err is human, to forgive is divine. I forgive him & wish his family the very best.”
