Braid(e) Movement. The first modern prophet and revival movement in Nigeria, and one of the first in Africa. It arose in Nov. 1915 at Opobo, within the semi-independent Anglican community among the Ijaw people in the E. Niger delta, through the healing and prayer ministry of a lay leader in the Bakana parish, Garrick Braid (c.1880–1918). The independent ‘Christ Army’ churches that appeared continued after his death, and many churches in E. Nigeria now claim him as founder.
