Popular Nollywood actress, Rita Edochie has bowed to pressure from Nigerians who have been mounting pressure on her to forgive a prominent comedienne, Mercy Cynthia Ginikachukwu popularly known as Ada Jesus.
The embattled Ada Jesus had recently claimed that Prophet Chukwuemeka Odumeje connives with Rita Edochie to stage fake miracles and that the controversial pastor also a pimp to Edochie.
Months after she made the allegations, she was struck with paralysis and mutism prompting her family carry her to Odumejeje’s to beg for forgiveness.
The pastor however vowed not to forgive her until she produces those she claimed he connives with to stage fake miracles.
On her part, Rita said in the presence of church members and Ada’s family, that the sick comedienne will never recover because of the lies she spread about her.
When the video went viral, Rita took to Instagram to release another video after she said she received numerous calls from people asking her to forgive.
She said she’s glad that she has been vindicated, adding that she wants to let those concerned know that she has forgiven the social media comedienne.
The actress then went on to warn those who criticize men of God to draw useful lessons from Ada Jesus’ experience.
She added that most critics of pastors won’t try that with the leaders of traditional worshippers.
Rita said, “When a herbalist drops jazz and you see it, you’ll be running helter-skelter but if a man of God drops Bible in front of your house, you’ll be shouting, ‘who kept this?’ “
She continued: “stop insulting men of God, particularly my man of God, Prophet Chukwuemeka Ohanemere Odumejeje. Use him to respect me. He’s good for me, that’s why I’m with him. Stop mocking me because I’m following Odumejeje. Whatever anyone is comfortable with, let them do. I am comfortable staying with him. Look for a good place and stay. Leave us alone.”
