'Olumba Olumba Obu,' who was born in 1918, was one of the first people to declare themselves to be God. The founder of the Brotherhood, a native of Cross River State, never received any official education during his whole life on this planet. In 1956, a man who was regarded as a spiritualist created the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, which was described as a new religion and a cult.
Despite the fact that the organization's motives are love, peace, and hope, many people perceived the church as spiritual and wondered if that kind of church could be found in the body of Christ. One of the things that set the brotherhood apart was their clothing code, with members wearing white and the founder and leader wearing red.
Members of the fraternity don't use make-up or wear jewelry such rings, necklaces, chains, or wristwatches. Bethel is the name of the place of worship, and members are required to remove their shoes before entering.
In the year 2000, Olumba Olumba Obu passed the organization's leadership to his son, Rowland Obu, who changed his name to Olumba Olumba Obu Jr to honor the organization's founder. Olumba Olumba Obu's last public appearance was in 2003, leading many to believe that he died the same year, despite the fact that members of the spiritual organization claimed that the 'ancient of days' was above death and could never die; they also claimed that he was alive and existed in the dual nature of spirit and human.
Helen Olumba Udoh and Olumba Olumba Jr, are Obu's two children, are currently in charge of the organization in his absence.
The organization still exists today, and the majority of individuals believe in the founder's theories and teachings.
