Actress Rita Edochie has celebrated controversial preacher Prophet Chukwuemeka Ohanaemere aka Odumeje on the latter’s birthday.

Rita in an Instagram post on Monday, shared a video of herself, Odumeje and others at an event, asking her followers to join her in celebrating the cleric.

She wrote: “My great people in the world please join me and celebrate my great prophet because today is his birthday.

“Happy birthday my great prophet Chukwuemeka Cyril Ohanaemere Odumeje, the lion himself. I wish you every good thing in life you wish yourself IJMN. Celebrate yourself like never before because many could not celebrate theirs.”

Odumeje, founder of Mountain of Holy Ghost Intervention and Deliverance Ministry, also celebrated his birthday on Instagram.

Several photos of the cleric were posted on Instagram on Monday with a birthday message.

Describing himself as a lion in one of the birthday posts, Odumeje wrote: “Happy birthday God’s general. Blessings from the God of the lion himself shall follow you today in Jesus name amen.”

Another post read, “Happy birthday to the great prophet of our time. Prophet Chukwuemeka Ohanaemere (Odumeje)”.

Followers of the prophet stormed the comment section of the posts to wish him a happy birthday.

The birthday celebration comes a month after parts of the cleric’s church building were demolished by the Anambra State Government for blocking a drainage.

A video showed that the church’s security post was demolished for blocking water flow at the Nwangele-Bida drainage in Onitsha.

Odumeje was also manhandled by security forces while he was trying to stop the demolition of the building attached to his church.

Rita Edochie also joined others in condemning the attack on Odumeje who she calls her spiritual father.
