Rita Edochie issued stern warning to those criticising her over the death of comedienne Ada Jesus

Published

Popular Nollywood actress, Rita Edochie, has taken to her official Instagram account to notify those criticising her over the death of comedienne, Ada Jesus, that they “will be the next on the line.”

The veteran actress released a video of a young man who defended her action for not immediately forgiving Ada Jesus when she sought forgiveness for defaming her.

As seen in the video she released on Instagram, she wrote; “For those of you still talking anyhow, you will be next on the line. I don’t know this boy, but I want to thank you so much for saying the truth, my mind and that of my family.”

Prior to the death of late Ada Jesus, she had made several allegations against several people, including Edochie and Anambra-based prophet, Chukwuemeka Odumeje.

She claimed that Odumejeje connived with Edochie to stage fake miracles and further alleged that she helped Edochie get men to sleep with her.

Due to these allegations, Edochie and Odumejeje vowed never to forgive the skit maker for her utterances.

The veteran actress, however, made a u-turn, stating that she had forgiven Ada Jesus ‘from her heart of heart.’ She then went on to warn those who criticise men of God.

Moreso, Odumeje also forgave the young lady and reportedly gifted her parents N1m for her treatment.

Despite their forgiveness, shortly after the comedienne died of kidney disease, Nigerians took to several social media platforms to blast the actress and the prophet.

Defending the actress, the unknown young man via a video posted on Edochie’s page said, “We have lost our norms but people no longer respect elderly people because of social media. Because we are all on Facebook, you feel it is somewhere we can easily type and insult people without realising that there is still reality after this social media stuff.

“This is somebody who is old enough to be your mother. To some of you out there, she is even old enough to be your grandmother; but because you have smartphones, you go out there typing rubbish, insulting somebody. It feels so bad to even think of the whole thing.

“The issue between that woman and Ada Jesus, if it is not for the hypocrisy of most of you Nigerians, if you placed your mother in that woman’s shoes, if that little girl of that age would come out publicly to say all those manner of things concerning your mother, to tarnish her image. Someone of that calibre, imagine Ada Jesus coming out to say that your mum comes to ask her to connect her to men, how would you feel?

“So, because of that once that she did not forgive instantly, she now becomes a bad person. You totally forgot all what the girl has been doing to her. You forgot how long her image has been tarnished. It is not fair. The woman went back home, slept over it and then forgave her. So, what is the big deal there?”

The man further said that there were people that would have had similar issue with Ada Jesus, but were waiting for her to recover to sue her and charge her for defamation of character.

He added, “If it is not hypocrisy on the part of most people that are commenting, most of you perpetrate more evil than what you are accusing these people of. Please let’s call a spade a spade; if we see the truth let us say the truth. The girl went extremely far.”(sic)

The Governor of Osun State, Adegboyega Oyetola has stated that the state is proud of its former Governor and Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola. 

 

Oyetola spoke in Ilesa on Saturday, 5 June, 2021 at an event marking the 64th birthday celebration of the Minister.

 

He noted that the former Governor of the state performed very well while ruling the state and still performing as the Minister Of Interior.

 

Oyetola who was represented at the event by the state Commissioner for Political Affairs and Inter-governmental Relations, Mr Taiwo Akeju, said: “You performed very well in the State of Osun and you are performing well as the Minister of Interior. We are very proud of you.”

 

The events celebrating the 64th birthday of the Minister included the presentation of a book titled “The Rauf I Know “, written by a journalist, Mr Dayo Olanipekun. Mr Olanipekun covered him as state house correspondent for the Broadcasting Corporation of Osun State (OSBC) in his two terms as governor.

 

Speaking later, Ogbeni Aregbesola warned that it would take 50 years for Nigeria to recover from another civil war.

 

He therfore warned Nigerians to desist from any act capable of threatening Nigeria’s unity, describing those calling for the separation of the country as ignorant.

 

Ogbeni Aregbesola said: “Those calling for Nigeria’s break-up are ignorant. Every Nigerian should work for Nigeria’s unity and development.

 

“It will take Nigeria 50 years to recover from civil war. Whoever likes women and children should not support, but rather condemn any call of separation and conduct capable of threatening Nigeria’s unity.

 

“Nigeria is a country created by God for us and for the black race.

 

“I am not saying everything that is happening in Nigeria is good. We should treat the problems and challenges facing Nigerians, not calling for her break-up. Decapitation is not the antidote for headache”.

 

Aregbesola also declared support for a new caucus of the All Progressives Congress (APC), The Osun Progressives (TOP), saying that he is in support of any move to consolidate progressives legacies in the State of Osun, strengthen the party from the polling units, wards and local government levels and strengthen internal democracy in the party, which are clearly stated in the objectives and mission of TOP.

 

In his address, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, said that Aregbesola’s legacy in the development of the State will forever linger in the sands of time.

 

The Ooni of Ife who spoke via Zoom noted that the State of Osun and its people cannot forget Aregbesola as his achievements are beyond what anyone can rubbish.

 

“We will forever remember him. Your work will never cease to reflect in the sands of time. It is during his tenure that landmark achievements occurred in Osun which we cannot forget.

 

“We can never forget you. Your achievements are beyond what anyone can rubbish. We are proud of you and what you represent.”

 

The Registrar of the Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof Ishaq Oloyede, who delivered a lecture titled “Power is responsibility” at the event, urged Nigerian political leaders to be responsible with power.

 

Oloyede who was represented by Dr Wahab Oyedokun, tasked politicians to operate with ideology that address people’s yearnings.

 

Speaking at the event, Chief Mrs Tokunbo-Awolowo Dosumu, daughter of the late sage, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, said Aregbesola is among the few Nigerian politicians that identify with and promote Awolowo’s legacy.

According to Dosumu, Aregbesola has always been committed to all the activities of Awolowo Foundation, describing him as an exemplary leader.

 

Politicians, traditional rulers, trade union groups and people from all walks of life from the state and across the country graced the occasion, while others spoke via zoom.
