Only some months ago, Okolie who is a traditionalist trended online for doing a Bible giveaway for her friends and followers on the platform
In a video, she explained that the Bible used to be hers back when she still practised Christianity. Okolie who also goes by the name Adaeze Ijemmili stated that she no longer believes in the 'lie'.
Adaeze, who described herself as a river goddess and an antichrist, revealed that she thought of burning the holy book but didn't out of respect for people who still believe in it.
