Chukwuemeka Ohanaemere, an Onitsha-based clergyman better known as Odumeje, predicted in October the November 6 governorship election in Anambra state will not take place.
In a Facebook video shared on October 29 by Holy Ghost Intervention TV, Odumeje said he has been praying, but instead of the election taking place, what he saw was death and bloodshed.
The cleric was speaking at his church service on October 16.
Anambra, like other south-eastern states, has suffered a wave of insecurity in recent months, raising concerns that the election will be marred by violence.
“I am looking at election that will come in Anambra state; I have been praying but I don’t see election because I see deaths. I see deaths of gun. Through a prophet, a nation is saved,” Odumeje said.
“We pray, this election in Anambra state, even before the election, because I don’t see the election hold(ing). Because I am seeing where people kill people. Don’t say I did not said [sic] it.
“When I say something, I can never joke when I say something. I saw anger, where the election were [sic] stopped.
“When a prophet is talking, a nation that wants development listens.”
However, the election did take place and few instances of violence were recorded. Also, nobody was reported to have died during the main and supplementary polls.
