Tears as Ada Jesus is buried in Imo

Ada Jesus

Instagram comedienne Mercy Mmesoma Obi Nnadi, better known as Ada Jesus, has finally been buried.

The burial, which took place on Friday, May 28, comes a month and seven days after her death on April 21.

Ada died two days after celebrating her 24th birthday from complications related to kidney disease.

Her burial rites, which began with a wake on Thursday, ended with internment after a lying-in-state at her husband’s compound in Oguta, Imo State.

The deceased’s husband Kingsley Nnadi, father Onyefeze Alaekwe and other family members were joined by friends and colleagues who came to pay their last respect. 

Ada Jesus’ mother could be seen crying at the burial as she found it hard to believe that her daughter was gone.

The days before Ada Jesus’ death were dominated by stories of how veteran actress Rita Edochie placed a curse on the deceased.

Ada Jesus had previously made several allegations against Edochie and Anambra-based Prophet Chukwuemeka Odumeje of the Mountain of Holy Ghost Intervention Deliverance.

She claimed that Odumeje connived with Rita to stage fake miracles and further alleged that she helped the actress get men to sleep with.

Angered by the allegations, Rita and Odumeje vowed never to forgive the skit maker.

They both cursed the comedienne when her family took her to Odumeje’s church for prayer, declaring that the ailing young woman will die from her illness as a lesson to others.

Rita and Odumeje, however, made a U-turn after overwhelming public condemnation of their action, saying they had forgiven the comedienne.
