The actress made this revelation while reacting to reports that Odumeje’s wife, Uju Ohanaemere, is the daughter of Eddie Nawgu, and as such the source of his power.
It was gathered that late Eddy Nawgu was a Nigerian self-proclaimed prophet of God and occult practitioner, who was popular in Igbo land.
Due to his infamous reputation, many people believe that Prophet Odumeje got spiritual help from his wife whom they believe is Nawgu’s daughter.
However, Rita Edochie cleared the air on her Instagram page, where she stated that Prophet Odumeje‘s strength comes from God Almighty, and not his wife who is in fact not the daughter of Nawgu.
“Odumeje’s source of strength is from God almighty,” her post reads.
“UJU OHANEMERE–Odumeje’s Wife Is not related to Eddy Nawgu (the occult practitioner) or Eddy Nawgu’s Wife.
“Brief HISTORY of Odumeje’s wife; She was born in the family of Rufus M.Ogbatuo in Obinikpa village in Ideato South L.G.A of Imo state.
“RUFUS M.OGBATUO married two wives with 11 children(6 boys and 5 girls). The mother of Odumeje’s wife was the first wife and her name is Rose E.Ogbatuo.
“No member of her family is related to EDDY NAWGU or EDDY NAWGU’S Wife in any manner whatsoever. Please, any information to the contrary is deliberately concocted by mischief makers for selfish and mysterious purposes. Any such information should be disregarded.”
