The spiritual leader of the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, His Holiness Olumba Olumba Obu has ordered a peaceful processions across all the state capitals of Nigeria and other national capitals of the world where the fold has members.
The Brotherhood of the Cross and Star is said to have no fewer than four million members in Nigeria and two million in African and Western countries, according to statistics at its Calabar headquarters.
The march, described as ‘The Pre-March of the Elects,’ is scheduled for the morning of Saturday, March 25, 2023, in Calabar and other state capitals.
The spiritual leader addressed the faithful at the end of their 72-hour marathon fasting which ended by midnight of Thursday, urging them to take the march very seriously as it borders on peace in the country and elsewhere.
He said: “This important march must be taken seriously by all children of the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star.
“I am ready to use this march to ensure there is peace in the entire federation of Nigeria, Africa and in the entire world.
“The Pre-March should be in order of the ’12 Powers’ and should be done in state and national capitals.”
Where it is not practically possible in some states and countries, his representatives in those places were advised to adjust for convenience.
The spokesman of the organisation, Dr Amah Williams, explained that the march in Calabar, will hold from their headquarters in Calabar South LGA and terminate at the UJ Esuene Stadium in the Calabar Municipality, a distance of over 10 kilometres.
“The march is ahead of a mega-event tagged “The Divine Numbering of the Elects.” It is to identify God’s children ahead of turbulent times,” he said.
Williams said the march as well as the mega event will avert socio political tension in Nigeria and elsewhere.
