Apparently, Emmanuella Adaolisa was a man named Ogoegbunam Emmanuel Nwolisa, with the Facebook username Itz Emmanuel Nwolisa. In 2021, he stopped posting via social account and created a new identity.
The trained pharmacist changed his identity and started living as a woman with the Facebook username Emmanuelle Adaolisa. Subsequently, he joined the choir in a Catholic Church in Porth Harcourt and participated actively in the church as a woman.
However, the man— now living as a woman — was said to have concluded his traditional marriage rites with his man and had also attended the marriage course in the Catholic church ahead of her white wedding.
Just days before the church wedding, Emmanuelle was on her way home after a church program when she died in a keke accident.
He was deposited as a woman but the mortuary attendant reportedly called the Church and informed them that Emmanuella is a man.
Church members claim they had no knowledge that Emmanuella was a man until mortuary attendants made the discovery.
