Odumeje, the Indaboski Bahose, was born on September 9th and reportedly grew up hustling to make ends meet, just like almost everyone from his tribe.
Before going full time into ministry, Odumeje had his humble days as a struggling leather designer on the streets of the buzzing and busy Onitsha town in Anambra state.
He had his secondary school education at Providence Secondary School after his primary education at Nweje. He desired to go further, but he went into a leather business due to financial constraints, where he first served as an apprentice.
Odumeje's wife and family
Odumeje, the Liquid Metal, is married to his beautiful wife, Uju Ohaenemere, with four children (two boys and two girls).

Uju was born to Rufus M. Ogbatuo in Obinikpa village, Umuobom town in Ideato South L.G.A of Imo state. Indaboski and Uju Ohanaemere are happily married with four children, two boys and two girls.
Controversies surrounding the Wife of Odumeje
There are claims that Uju Ohanaemere, the wife of Indaboski, Chukwuemeka Odumeje, was born by the famous self-acclaimed prophet and notorious occult practitioner, "Eddy Nawgu".
These claims went on and linked the source of the prophet's powers to that of "Eddy Nawgu".
"Eddy Nawgu had enormous powers during his days in Onitsha, the same city where the Indaboski grew up to be the man he is today, but these claims are false and cannot be verified.
Uju Ohanemere or any member of her family is not related to Eddy Nawgu or Eddy Nawgu's wife whatsoever," Veteran Nollywood actress Rita Edochie took to her Instagram page to refute those claims.
"Please, any information to the contrary is deliberately concocted by mischief makers for selfish and mysterious purposes, "Rita wrote on her Instagram page.
In the same post, Rita Edochie shared pictures of Prophet Odumeje and his wife while revealing the actual source of his power.
The start of Odumeje's Ministry as a Prophet, "The Indaboski"
The beginning of Odumeje's ministry came as a big surprise to many. According to the young prophet, going into ministry had not always been his vision, but that of his mother.
According to Odumeje, His mum had a vision of becoming a great prophet of God and praying relentlessly for his divine arrest.
While his mother was at it, he got himself more preoccupied with football and music. He once aspired to be a musician or a football legend. Of course, the music and acting traits could still be seen even in his ministry.
It wasn't until the age of 19 that God visited him. He said God told him he would use him like Gideon in the Bible and that he would be a mighty man of valour "who will deliver his people from the captivity of the Devil".
Prophet Odumeje, the Liquid Metal, is really the fight himself, as he claims, performing many moves on stage. He is called the "Indaboski Bahose"
He followed up the divine vision with prayers and fasting and later quit his leather business in 2000. to venture into complete ministerial work.
The onset of his ministry was difficult for him, especially financially, but he remains ever grateful to his strong mother, who stood by him throughout.
Odumeje, the Indaboski Bahose, as called by his church fans, founded his ministry, "The Mountain of Holy Ghost Intervention and Deliverance Ministry", on September 10, 2010.
It started up as a deliverance ministry at No. 14 Osumu Street, Odakpu, Onitsha. It moved the ministry to Okija hall and, subsequently, to Arondizuogu hall (both in Odakpu, Anambra state).
It later got its permanent site at No. 88 Bida Road, Fegge Onitsha, where it is currently located. The ministry can now boast of up to a 20,000-seat capacity.
Controversies around Prophet Odumeje "Indaboski Bahose"
The currently trending prophet has a lot going on in his life currently as his name and ministry have faced lots of controversial statements and debates from the public.
First, his odd miracle sessions involve lifting members of his congregation and throwing them at empty chairs in the church, just like wrestlers do in WWE wrestling matches.
This earned him several nicknames like "smackdown pastor" and "heavyweight servant of the most high". It was one feature of his ministry that brought him to the attention of people on social media.
He was also accused of staging his miracle sessions and having them captured on camera. Among some of his miracle sessions is that involving raising the dead back to life.

Another thing that has got some people frowning and raising eyebrows at his ministry is that he boldly dances to secular music in his church while spraying wads of dollars or allowing wads of money to be sprayed on him.
It doesn't end there; recently, he has been alleged to have made controversial statements about certain groups of people (such as the Arondizuogu people and indigenes of a community in Anambra) who have frowned at his remarks.
A video once surfaced online showing a native doctor performing some deadly rituals on Prophet Chukwuemeka Odumeje after making derogatory comments about the people of Izuogu and the Late Pericoma.
He seems to have stepped on the toes of these people, who are reportedly trying to use legal and diabolical means to get back at him.
The story of Ada Jesus and Prophet Odumeje
News has gone round that the popular comedienne, Ada Jesus, is dead. Mercy Mmesoma Obi, popularly known as Ada Jesus, is a 23-year-old comedienne, actress, and content developer.
She was born on April 19th, 1998. Shortly before her death, Ada Jesu was known for shooting her comedies in the Igbo language.
But, what is the link between Ada Jesus and Prophet Odumeje? The story has it that Ada Jesus had accused Prophet Chukwuemeka Odumehe of doing fake miracles.
According to the story, Ada Jesus had also insulted actress Rita Edochie and her family, saying she brings people to Prophet Odumeje's church for fake miracles.
Because of what Ada Jesus said, Prophet Odumeje and Rita Edochie had said they wouldn't forgive the young lad until she provides proof of her allegations.

It wasn't long ago after this incident, Ada Jesus fell ill. She was reportedly diagnosed with kidney disease that left her paralysed. Many accusing fingers were pointed at Prophet Odumeje and Rita Edochie for her unfortunate ailment.
The young lady's family were said to have carried her to Prophet Odumeje's church to seek forgiveness. However, it was noted that the Prophet vowed not to forgive her.
Rita Edochie was quoted to have said to Ada Jesus, "Ada Jesus, if you get up from this sickness, know it's not me." However, later, Rita was reported to have said in a three-minute video that she had forgiven Ada Jesus.
"I am here to tell you all that I have forgiven Ada Jesus. From my heart to heart, I have forgiven you, Ada Jesus.
"Stop insulting my man of God, Prophet Chukwwuemeka Ohanemere Odumeje. Use him to respect me. He's good to me; that's why I am with him, "Rita said in the video.
Another video that came up showed that Prophet Odumeje later said during his service session that he has forgiven Ada Jesus and her family and even offered to give her family N1 million.
However, Ada Jesus's family refused to accept the money, insisting that Prophet Odumeje's forgiveness is all they wanted.
Many people had hoped for the recovery of Ada Jesus. Unfortunately, the young comedienne Ada Jesus died on the morning of April 21, 2021.
