Despite the security threats, the Independent National Electoral Commissioner (INEC) had maintained that the commission was ready to conduct the election as earlier scheduled. However, Odumeje had claimed while addressing his congregation on Sunday, October 16 that there will not be an election in Anambra; noting that he foresees violence.
Odumeje told his church members that he foresaw massive killings in Anambra. The controversial clergyman said he had been praying to God over the much-anticipated elections.
Despite Odumeje’s prophecy about the election, the voting exercise was relatively peaceful.
However, to ensure all votes count, the Nigerian electoral body, INEC, has announced that the voting exercise will continue today, Sunday, November 7 in all affected polling units, where the exercise could not hold.
Specifically at polling units with malfunctioning Biometric Voters Accreditation Systems.
Odumeje, born Chukwuemeka Ohanaemere in September 1982, is a controversial Nigerian clergyman and general overseer of The Mountain of Holy Ghost Intervention and Deliverance Ministry who is noted for his unorthodox methods of healing and exorcism of supposedly demon-possessed individuals.
Odumeje was born in Imo State, into a family of six children and was the third born child. He had very limited formal education and dropped out of school at an early age and citing “financial constraints” as the reason.
Prior to becoming a clergyman, he relocated to Anambra State in search of a better life, where he established a business as a struggling leather designer, a profession he would eventually abandon to establish a church.
