There is anxiety among fans and well-wishers of popular Nigerian comedienne, Ada Jesus, born Mercy Cynthia Ginikachukwu, as rumours of her death hits social media on Wednesday.
The popular comedian had been battling a health crisis before her death, and fans have taken to social media to mourn her demise.
According to the Facebook account of Ebonyi lawmaker, Maria Ude Nwachi, Ada Jesus is dead, she wrote:
“JUST IN! Ada Jesus (Mercy Cynthia Ginikachukwu) has passed away. RIP”
Ada Jesus celebrated her birthday on Monday, April 19, while still on admission at an undisclosed hospital and had a small occasion organised for her by friends and family.
Ada Jesus had accused Prophet Odumeje of conniving with Rita Edochie to stage fake miracles. She had also claimed that she helps Rita get men that sleep with her.
She however came down with an ailment that got her paralyzed and unable to speak after she made the allegation in 2020.
However, upon being brought to the church to beg for forgiveness, Prophet Odumeje vowed never to forgive her until she brings those he supposedly ‘connives’ with for his alleged fake miracles.
Rita Edochie on the other hand stated that Ada Jesus will never get up from her sickbed over the allegation she made against her. She also stated that she is making the pronouncement before Ada’s father without any fear.
Both Rita Edochie and Prophet Odumeje have publicly forgiven the comedienne.
