Veteran actress, Rita Edochie, has taken to her Instagram account to react after the death of popular comedienne, Ada Jesus.
The actress, who had an altercation with the comedienne before her death, posted a video showing a choir singing and rejoicing, chanting “Jesus is Lord”, and used the chant as the caption of the post.
She posted two other videos consecutively. One was a five-minute video that showed a pastor preaching, which she captioned “Jeeeeesus is Lord forever. Lord almighty made me a strong woman and that I will remain. The seed cannot be killed.” (sic)
The other video showed a woman singing, which she captioned “Lord have your way in my heart”.
The altercation that ensued between Edochie and Ada Jesus was due to the claims the late comedienne made, alleging that Anambra-based prophet, Chukwuemeka Odumeje, connived with Rita Edochie to stage fake miracles.
Ada Jesus further alleged that she helped Edochie get men to sleep with her.
However, months after she made the allegations, Ada Jesus was diagnosed with a kidney problem that left her incapacitated. She began pleading for forgiveness from people she had offended through her utterances, including the actress and
Edochie vowed never to forgive the skit maker for her utterances. It was reported that in the presence of church members and Ada Jesus’ family, she stated that the sick comedienne would never recover from her illness because of the lies she told against her.
Also, the prophet vowed never to forgive the comedienne.
Although the veteran actress later came out to say that she had forgiven Ada Jesus ‘from her heart of heart’, Nigerian tweeps took to Twitter to knock the veteran actress shortly after the death of the young female comedian.
Odumeje also reportedly contributed N1m towards the treatment of the late comedienne, saying he had forgiven her.
However, fans of the late comedienne are not having it as they thronged Edochie’s Instagram page to lash her for the videos she posted.
An Instagram user, @henrykingokwuy, said “Stop posting rubbish. History will never forget you. I know you’re happy she’s gone. Rest in Peace Ada.”
Another person, @drsoft_e, said, “Sure! Jesus is Lord. But let me remind you that death is inevitable. Ada just had her share; the remaining is for us. How and when it will come, you know not. So, don’t fool yourself. We are all a step closer to our graves. Jesus will remain Lord. Shame!”

Sheikh Gumi: I Will Lock Aso Rock If My Child Is Kidnapped
Sheikh Ahmad Gumi: “How I will wipe away Aso Rock if my child is abducted is unbearable”
Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, a well-known Islamic cleric, has threatened to lock Aso Rock if his child is kidnapped.
He said this in an interview with BBC Pidgin on Friday.
On Wednesday, the cleric urged the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to pay the abductors of Greenfield University students who were abducted in April the N100 million requested by the abductors.
On Friday, Gumi addressed the issue once more, saying that the federal government would choose between saving students’ lives and paying the N100 million.
“Life versus material; that is how you will look at it. It is the absolute responsibility of the government to protect lives. Now we have lives or N100 million at stake and these lives of 17 innocent young children,” he said.
“I can’t imagine if my child is there. I can never keep quiet. I will go and lock Aso Rock, if my child is there. They are my children too.
“What is N100 million? So, what I’m saying is, free these children then the field is open for you to whatever action you have. It is between bandits and N100 million. I do not want the struggle between bandits and lives.
“This is just simple logic. It does not require any rocket science. How can you play with lives? You can play with your money, but you can’t play with peoples’ lives. They just went there to study.”
22 Teenage Girls From Akwa Ibom Rescued From Ogun Brothel (Photo)
Operatives of the Ogun State Police Command have rescued 22 teenage girls who were lured away from Akwa Ibom State to Ogun for prostitution.
The command’s spokesman, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi in a statement on Saturday, said the police in an operation, coordinated by the Area Commander Ota, ACP Muhideen Obe, rescued the girls.
He said the police team, upon credible intelligence received, that minors were being recruited from other states and used as commercial sex workers at KOLAB hotel in Itele Ota, stormed the said brothel at about 8.00pm, where the 22 teenagers whose ages ranged between 10 and 14 were rescued.
On interrogation, the girls narrated how they were lured from their respective villages in Akwa Ibom State to Ogun, with the promise to employ them as sales girls in restaurants and supermarkets, only for them to get to Lagos and were transferred to a brothel in Ogun State as commercial sex workers.
They narrated further that, they were deprived of using phone or any communication devices, therefore, making it impossible for them to reach out to their parents or relations.
The manager of the brothel, Isaac Ogbaji, 33, and ten other male suspects were also arrested during the operation.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, CP Edward Awolowo Ajogun, has ordered that the family support unit of the Area Command, Ota should take over the investigation of the case, identify the recruiting cartel and bring them to justice as soon as possible.
Kidnappings and education in the north
After 2018 Dapchi kidnap in Yobe State, we had thought that school kidnapping is a barbarity left in the pit of our inglorious past. Alas, that is not the case. The recent orgy of school kidnappings which had brought hues and cries from all the orifices of the North has kept one popping antacid, wondering: why the North again? Why kidnappings again in a region where kids should rather be encouraged to go to school, no thanks to the anachronistic Almajiri system. Why again in a region which harbours 69 per cent of out-of-school Nigerian children.
North as a region with dilapidated educational system, should rather be made secure so female students can be sensitised on reasons to take their studies to tertiary level before or after which their hands could be given out in marriage.
Education is already hitting its nadir in the North. Kidnappers would dig deeper. Innocent kids would be scared, so scared of going to school. More kids would wander on the streets of the North. And the few that would manage to continue are still not guaranteed safety out of their school premises. Such is the unsafe state of not just the North, but Nigeria.
Insecurity has gotten to the acme of its control; the whole of Nigeria is its palace. North is where its blood-consuming throne is placed. If care is not taken, innocent kids that kidnapping would chase out of schools are those who will extend the base of banditry in the future. God forbid that happens.
The Federal Government has got a lion share of the responsibility. No nation is secure without a friendly atmosphere and a sound economy. Northern men tend to do the hardest tasks that could cross one’s mind; yet, the debilitating economy has made living harder for them and every other citizen. You can’t make people hungry and have security. The more the hunger, the more insecurity and no goodwill this have on the safety of innocent school children.
Kids deserve to go to school with rest of mind. The thought of getting kidnapped is unfortunately what Nigeria has left popping on their unripe minds. It is high time North brought this barbarity to a halt. Absolute security is the first right students are entitled to in education. No student should choose between being safe or going to school.
