“I took him like a brother but he st*bbed me in the back repeatedly” – Yul Edochie finally comes clean on why he didn’t mourn Junior Pope

Nollywood actor Yul Edochie has finally opened up on why he didn’t mourn his late colleague, Junior Pope.

It was reported in April that the actor died after drowning at Anam River in Anambra State while returning from a movie set with others.

Many were left surprised as Yul Edochie didn’t publicly mourn him, neither was he there at his funeral which held last week in his hometown in Enugu State.

Finally speaking out via his Instagram page, Yul stated that he didn’t want to say anything till after his burial. He noted how people were questioning him for not attending his burial or making a statement on his demise.

According to Yul, he took Junior Pope as a brother and good friend and was there for him when he needed him, unfortunately, the late actor stabbed him repeatedly.

Noting how that’s life, he promised to drop the full details soon so others can learn from him as he admonished others to be careful about what they wish others.

“I didn’t want to say anything till after his burial. I know many asked why I wasn’t there. Why I haven’t said anything about it since. I took him like a brother and good friend. I was there for him when he needed me.
But he stabbed me in the back, repeatedly.
That’s LIFE.
I’ll drop the full details soon so others can learn from it.
Be careful what you wish people, it could come to you”.

Yul Edochie reveals why he didn’t mourn Junior Pope
Recall that Yul had earned backlash for ignoring Junior Pope following his demise. Rather than mourn him, Yul celebrated and rained prayers on TC Okafor, one of the survivors of the Anam River accident.

Taking to his comment section, many dragged him for shunning Junior Pope as they blamed it on Junior Pope’s lack of support for Yul’s marriage to Judy Austin, hence, his hatred for him..

Responding to them, Yul put up a prayerful message which stated that as long as his heart is clean and he doesn’t wish his fellow human evil, whoever wishes him evil will be put to shame.
