Rita Edochie, Nollywood actress, says the ongoing predicaments of Ada Jesus, a comedienne, has vindicated her of the entertainer’s allegations.
Ada Jesus had last year accused Edochie of conniving with Chukwuemeka Ohanaemere, a controversial Onitsha-based clergyman better known as Odumeje, to stage fake miracles.
The movie star had, however, dismissed the allegations and went on to curse the comedienne for attempting to smear her reputation.
It was gathered that not long after the entertainer’s allegations, she took ill and later became paralysed.
In a recent video, the family of the ailing comedienne had taken her to Odumeje’s church in Anambra to seek his forgiveness and divine healing.
But in the video, the controversial pastor vowed never to forgive her, saying “nobody speaks against me and go free. I’m not a man that you can joke with.”
Edochie, who was also present at the church, had said she would not forgive the entertainer, while further cursing her.
“If I have ever asked Ada to bring someone for Odumeje for fake miracles, may I never get anything I want on this earth. But if I did not, Ada will never get up from this sickness,” she had said.
But in an Instagram video on Sunday, the actress said she has forgiven Ada Jesus after several pleas from her friends and fans.
Rita also said that the entertainer’s predicaments have vindicated her and the clergyman of the allegations. She urged Ada Jesus to ask for forgiveness and healing from God.
“I am happy that the whole world has seen that Ada Jesus framed all sorts of lies and heaped on me. I have been vindicated by Ada’s predicaments. The good Lord has fought my battle for me,” she said.
“As a result of pleadings from my people, particularly my fans, I have forgiven her. Let her beg God for forgiveness and healing.”
The actress said the development should teach the entertainer not to engage in the habit of insulting men of God, especially Odumeje.
“A lot of people called me from different parts of the world asking me to forgive her because l said I’ll not forgive her,” she added.
“I’m here to tell all of you that I have forgiven Ada Jesus from my heart of heart. But I want to sound a note of warning, it’s not for you to judge the man of God. Stop insulting men of God particularly my prophet, Odumeje. I’m comfortable staying with him, leave us alone.”
