“Since that time, I have been feeling like meeting my lookalike.”

He believes Odumeje is a man of God. “As a Christian, I know that Odumeje has the anointing; he is being led by the holy spirit,” he told

And he added: “Since I attend a deliverance ministry, I know God is really using him and he has not used one tenth of his God given power.

“I believe God gave him the power to deliver the captives and set them free from bondage.

“I pray God continues to empower him more to do greater exploits. God will uphold and bless his ministry.

“I have the plan to visit him and I know God will make it possible to locate him one day.”
