That followed claims by Ada Jesus that Rita connived with controversial Prophet Chukwuemeka Odumeje of the Mountain of Holy Ghost Intervention Deliverance Ministry.

Months after making the grave allegations, Ada Jesus was diagnosed with a kidney problem that left parts of her body swollen.


The family of the comedian, who had become paralysed, took her before Odumeje for deliverance but the cleric rejected her.

Instead, he and Rita laid curses on her, saying she will pay heavily for her “blackmail” and “lies”.
