Like TB Joshua, Coronavirus has disgraced Prophet Odumeje as the pandemic failed to end in April as predicted by the controversial Anambra based prophet.
Naija News recalls that Prophet TB Joshua, the founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) trended in March, for an infamous prophecy in which he claimed the COVID 19 would disappear on March 27.
The SCOAN General Overseer had revealed during a church sermon in February, that the pandemic will be over by the end of March.
“This month, 27th, it will be over, by the end of this month, whether we like it or not, no matter the medicine they have produced to cure whatever, it will go the way it came,” the Prophet had said.
Just like TB Joshua predicted March ending, Prophet Chukwuemeka Ohanaemere of the Spiritual Director of Mountain of Holy Ghost Intervention Deliverance Ministry World Miracle Center, alias Land of Freedom, popularly known as Prophet Odumeje, said Coronavirus will vanish April ending.
In a statement on Saturday, Pastor Giwa stated that creators of COVID-19 want the lockdown to continue so they can perpetuate their evil plans.
According to the popular clergyman, creators of the deadly disease want people locked at home while they carry on with their nefarious activities.
He claimed that the fear of coronavirus has killed a lot of people more than the disease itself.
