It was reported that Pete Edochie did not pay any ransom before the kidnappers released him.

Speaking about his kidnapping experience, Pete Edochie said in an interview after his release:

"All I know is that I was able to pick a cab that took me to a hotel in Awka.”

“I was very happy that God allowed me to experience this first hand. They told me they had no business kidnapping me at all. First of all they did not touch me, they did not blindfold me. They did not gag me. They did not hack me they did not tie me, and they said I am their father.

“And somehow, that they have managed to hear a lot about me that I am very good to people. That I assist people particularly the downtrodden; That they know all that and you so would not hurt me. I mean they didn’t tie their faces. Nothing. They were discussing with me.

“They bought me some drinks, made sure I did not get alcoholically dry. You know as an individual, if you find yourself in a situation like that under siege, you complicate your situation if you experience internal alcoholic drought. So, by the grace of God they were lubricating my system for me and at the same time encouraging me to feel the pulse of their heartbeat."

"....I am not quite sure I played any major role in his blend of professionalism. Okay, let’s put it this way, perhaps I inspired him to do a course in Theatre Arts at UNIPORT. I didn’t force him; he chose it. And he majored in Directing. But I told him ‘boy, listen, I am your father and I am old in this business, being a Director will not explore your innate potentials to the full. You have a very good voice, you are a brilliant young man, and you are good-looking, why don’t you go in front of the camera instead of going behind it?’ He did, and he still thanks me till tomorrow. Let’s put it that way, but as a rule, I don’t make choice for my children, whatever it is that you want to be; it’s all right by me. Whenever they want to get married, bring the girl to the house, ‘Daddy, I want to marry this girl’, I say ‘go on’. That is the kind of role I play."

Pete Edochie has been involved in lots of Controversies and a few scandals. No scandals, no entertainment.
Most of the controversies surrounding Pete Edochie come from his opinions which are often controversial.

Pete Edochie And Olu Jacobs Fight Over Igwe Roles

Pete Edochie had blasted Olu Jacobs in 2010 saying that Olu Jacobs Olu Jacobs destroys Igbo culture and tradition.

Pete Edochie's outburst came at a time Olu Jacobs was the most sought after Actor for Kingship Igwe roles in Nollywood, especially royalty movies featured in Asaba, Enugu. Pete Edochie was not been featured in movies that time.

Pete Edochie blasted Olu Jacobs saying: 
"The people who are making movies are children and most of them are unintelligent. The person who is playing the Igwe roles in all the movies these days is Olu Jacobs. He is not an Igbo man. Simply do not understand why somebody who does not speak the Igbo language, who does not understand the culture, the mind and the psychology of a people should be the one playing those roles. This is the reason why those roles are not being properly interpreted. Have you ever seen a woman beside a Northern Emir. But I watched a film where people had to help hold Olu Jacobs wife in the movie and he basically raped her because she refused to have sex with him and he was supposed to be the Igwe in the film. That is an absolute insult to the traditional stools of the Igbo people. If he knew better he would have advised the producers of such a movie or should never have even taken part in it at all."

Pete Edochie Vs Olu Jacobs: Olu Jacobs Replies

In September 2010, Veteran Nollywood actor Olu Jacobs have responded to Pete Edochie’s claim that he (Olu Jacobs) destroys the Igbo culture the way he plays the role of Igwe in traditional films. Olu Jacobs response was part of a lengthy interview where he was asked to share his opinion regarding Pete’s statement.

"I’m surprised Peter can say that. Olu Jacobs is an actor; he’s a fine actor, he’s the best analyzer of character and the best manipulator of words. If some people, for whatever reason, say that the hundreds or thousands of fans who phone and come to applaud me everyday don’t not know what they are saying, that they don’t know what they are doing… I’m talking about real Igwes who meet me, not in their palaces but at airports, outside and they call me to tell me how much they appreciate what I am doing.

This happens everyday, even today. Do you want to tell me that those people don’t know what they are doing? Do you want to tell me that it’s only Pete who knows what he’s saying? What about the producers who commissioned this story, do they not know whom they want for what role? Is he saying that those producers don’t know what they are doing? Whatever he says about me, he must say about them because I didn’t write the script myself, it wasn’t my film. I want to end this topic by saying, I, Olu Jacobs respect and admire our way of life and I will do anything to propagate it, honestly and sincerely.

Pete is my younger brother, forget the red cap.

If we meet outside he must show respect. He can think whatever he likes, he has every right to his own opinion but I don’t have to agree with him. In this case, I totally disagree with him. I believe that in this case, he should have re-educated himself well enough before making any comments. I don’t know what’s behind what he has said, but I know he’s not being honest."

As far as I am concerned, I don’t have anything against Peter. His two children are my children and we’ve being working together. We both have a working relationship. He called me some three weeks ago; somebody wanted an interview and he wanted me to grant the interview and I did. I don’t have anything to hide and I see no reason why I should . I would rather advice that his questions be directed to the marketers who bought and commissioned the play. 

All I know is that, I get called to do movies , I do them to my best. Maybe Peter knows something I don’t know."

If You Buy Your Daughter A Car, Register It In Her Husband's Name For The Marriage To Last - Pete Edochie

Pete Edochie had in March 2021 sparked a conversation with his opinion about some marital issues on social media. The movie star stated first that people are free to insult him based on his opinions about marriage.

Pete Edochie continued by saying that he has the authority to talk about marriage because he has the longest marriage record in Nollywood.

Pete Edochie said any father who wants to gift his married daughter a car and gives it in her name is destroying the daughter's marriage. He advised the father to buy the car in his son-in-law's name.

He said that is the only way to encourage the marriage to last as they will break up soon after the wedding if the car is registered in the wife's name.

Yul Edochie had disagreed with his father, Pete Edochie, after the Nollywood veteran advised fathers, who want to gift their daughters cars, to buy the car in the daughter's husband's name.

Yul, disagreed with that part and he took to his Instagram to share his opinion on the matter.

He said that if he wants to give his daughter a car he will register it in her name.

Feminism Is Why Women Get Beaten Up In Marriage - Pete Edochie

Pete Edochie again sparked another controversy on social media when he spoke against feminism. He said:

"Feminism isn’t something black people are known for. Once a woman leaves her parents to meet her husband and takes his surname, she is to be submissive to him. If she wasn’t married, she can do whatever she wants.
"Women walk and show off their behinds, it’s so that men would find them. If you see such a woman and express your marriage interest, then she starts walking properly. Our women now plunge into feminism nowadays."

“They can’t even keep their husbands anymore. Is that a good thing? These women are schooled but a lot of wives now can’t even cook — one thing that a woman should be good in so as to be able to keep her husband.

My mother was not educated but she would cook all sorts of soups, including bitter leaf, Oha, Ogbono, Okro, Egusi, Ukwa, and what have you. My father would always get back home hurriedly to eat what his wife had cooked."

“Today, our wives can’t even cook anymore. Women who can’t cook aren’t supposed to call themselves women. And feminism is what causes women to be beaten up in marriages. You complain to a woman and she retorts."

"It becomes unbearable, so you stretch your arm and deal her a slap. Domestic violence starts. I don’t like seeing women crying because it hurts me deeply. But it is the fault of the woman herself a lot of times.”

According to Edochie, feminism has no place in Nigeria’s culture.

He continued, “To be honest, the understanding of women is low. I’m not a misogynist but I’ve associated with them a lot, even at work. Feminism has no place in our culture. We don’t worship women as the whites do.

“In the west, women could join forces and accuse a male colleague of assault. The man resigns. This can’t happen in our culture. As a young woman, if pedestrians don’t admire you, you’d weep for fear of not being beautiful."

Kneeling Down To Propose To A Woman Not Our Culture - Pete Edochie

This sparked so much outrage on social media in Nigeria. While some supported Pete on this, some others did not. Pete Edochie had said:

"I’m a strong adherent of culture. Kneeling to put a ring on a woman’s hands is not our culture. Any man who does that transfers the headship of his family to that woman. Until my dad died at 96, he never knelt to propose.

It’s just like kneeling down on entering a church because there’s a higher being to whom you’re paying respect. Men climb trees to tap palm wine. How does it look if women do the same? Today women dictate to men.

It wasn’t like that in our days. How women talk to men nowadays isn’t how we were raised. My mother was never beaten. My wife and I have been married for 52 years. I never beat her. My five married sons don’t beat their wives.”

Pete Edochie And Sugabelly Lotanna Odunze 

In November 2019, a controversial US-based illustrator, Lotanna Odunze who is popularly known as Sugabelly gave her opinion about the acting prowess of veteran actor, Pete Edochie.

Sugabelly wrote on her Twitter page, “Pete Edochie is a really bad actor. He’s been playing the same role his entire life.

“Acting isn’t quoting proverbs. But Nigerians live and die by seniority, so the older he gets, the less anybody is able to point this glaring elephant in the room out.”

Her audacious statement however triggered diverse reactions on Twitter.

Many of the people who commented on the post said Sugabelly's statements were borne out of ignorance and malice. Some people also dug up Edochie’s past achievements to rubbish her claims.

When Sunday Scoop reached out to Edochie who is considered one of Africa’s most talented actors, to react to Sugabelly’s statement, he said everyone was entitled to their opinion because what mattered to him was that he’s alive, kicking and enjoying himself.

‘‘I’ll be honest with you; I’m indifference to opinions expressed about me, because they don’t make sense to me. If Pete Edochie is a fantastic actor, thank you very much…

“It doesn’t mean anything to me; it has absolutely nothing to do with me. If you start responding to things that don’t make sense, there is that danger of reducing yourself to the level of that person. I’m mentally occupied 24 hours on a daily basis. I trained formally as a broadcaster and by the grace of God, I happen to be an articulate individual. I don’t have to advertise that, every other person knows that.

“I don’t even see most of these things and I don’t give a damn about it and don’t care. You have a right to express any opinion about me but it doesn’t mean anything to me. I have 13 grandchildren and I have been successfully married for 50 years. I’m living in my own house and comfortable.

“I don’t have time for all these things… What matters is that Pete Edochie is alive, kicking and enjoying himself.

“On April 7 I’ll be 73. There are few people of my age who are active. If I start responding to individuals, it means that I don’t appreciate God who created me…”
