Nollywood actress Rita Edochie on Friday shared a video of controversial Prophet Chukwuemeka Odumeje, inviting people to come to his church for vigil.
The video was posted on Instagram barely 48 hours after news broke that comedian Ada Jesus had died in an Abuja hospital of kidney related ailment.
“Waiting for you at Mountain of Holy Ghost Intervention and Deliverance Ministry for today’s vigil,” the actress captioned the video showing Odumeje performing his unusual religious service.
The days before and Ada Jesus’ death were dominated by reports of how Rita Edochie and Odumeje placed a curse on the deceased.
That followed allegations made by Ada Jesus that Rita connived with Odumeje to perform fake miracles.
Months after making the grave allegations, Ada Jesus was diagnosed with a kidney problem that left parts of her body swollen.
The family of the comedian, who had become paralysed, took her to Odumeje for deliverance but the cleric rejected her.
Instead, he and Rita laid curses on her, accusing her of blackmail and lies.
They both declared that the ailing young woman will die from her illness as a lesson to others.
The backlash that followed the pronouncements forced the man who calls himself Indabosky and the veteran actress to recant and declare that they had forgiven the comedian.
Following Ada Jesus’ death on Wednesday, April 21, many Nigerians called out Odumeje and Rita for their use of heavy words, with many insinuating that the deceased suffered a spiritual attack because of their curses.
