Abstract

ELIJAH II RADICALISATION AND CONSOLIDATION OF THE GARRICK BRAIDE MOVEMENT 1915-1918 BY FRIEDER LUDWIG 1. Introduction: The Braide-Movement in contemporary and historical perspective . Christmas Eve 1915 was not a good day for James Johnson, the African Assistant Bishop and President of the Niger Delta Church Board. On that day, a meeting between Johnson and Gar- rick Sokari Braide had been arranged by some Bonny chiefs in an attempt to reconcile the Bishop with the charismatic catechist. The failure of this attempt is described as follows: Chief Alexander Hart introduced Braide and said: 'Your Lordship, this is the young man in other words the prophet we have come to present to you for recognition and induction.' Then the Bishop said: 'Don't call him a prophet. Change that name. I shall listen to you when you have changed the name.' Since Johnson refused to listen to Braide unless the title 'prophet' was changed to 'evangelist', the meeting ended in the withdrawal of Braide and his followers: When Garrick picked up his walking stick and walked out of the Bishop's Court, about 2200 people of different walks of life followed him to Chief Uku alias Oko Jumbo...'
