The Omega Fire Ministries has denied that the General Overseer of the
church, Apostle Johnson Suleman has any amorous relationship  with one
Miss Stephanie Otobo  arrested by the police last Friday, March 3,
A statement signed by Phrank Shaibu, Communications Manager to Apostle
Suleman  flatly denied that there was a so called amorous relationship
between the said Miss Otobo and the General Overseer, including a
promise to marry her.
Instead, the church stated that the lady was arrested by operatives
acting on a tip off that the lady had repeatedly tried to blackmail
the fiery preacher, including demanding N500 million from him, failing
which she threatened to expose a purported amorous relationship
between her and the Senior Pastor.
The statement of Omega Fire Ministries was in reaction to two letters
written by Lagos lawyer, Festus Keyamo demanding the same N500 million
on behalf of the said lady and also accusing Apostle Suleiman of
procuring policemen to intimidate and detain his client unlawfully,
having earlier promised to marry her.
But Phrank Shaibu said the lawyer was misled into believing that there
was an amorous relationship between Apostle Suleman and the said Miss
Otobo, pointing out that the lady was caught up by her own
machinations as she was arrested while trying to withdraw money paid
into her account by the Church in a sting operation coordinated by the
“Unknown to Keyamo, the police was alerted following several attempts
by the said lady to blackmail Apostle Suleiman. The police also
recorded her conversations making the frivolous demand. The highpoint
of the drama was her attempt to withdraw money paid into her account
at the instance of the police. The lawyer should know that his client
was arrested by the police with abundance of evidence confirming that
she is indeed a serial blackmailer”, he said.
The Communications Manager further debunked Keyamo’s claim of an
amorous relationship, a promise to marry and that the Senior Pastor
had actually made the initial move towards marriage by seeing her
parents, wondering how such a transaction could have taken place
without any iota of evidence.
“Let me place it on record that, the lady in question is a
self-confessed stripper in a nite club in Canada, who like thousands
of people that seek help from Apostle Johnson Suleman, called to
pretentiously convey her intentions to embrace Christ and also needed
financial help to keep body and soul as she no longer had a means of
livelihood after quitting as a stripper. ”
“Does Keyamo or his serial blackmailing client have pictures of the
visit by Apostle Suleiman or his representatives to her parents? In
any case, how could such a relationship have existed when Apostle and
the said  lady have never met physically? How could he have made a
promise of a house and a lifestyle comparable to what she has in
Canada when he has never been to her house or seen her physically as
to have an idea of her living standards?” he asked.
“If Keyamo was not misled or excited by the prospects of a jackpot of
N500 million and or an opportunity to save his already dwindling
career in law practice from total caput by latching on the popularity
of Apostle Suleman vide this tendentiously devilish plot and skewed
romantic fantasy, then we may as well demand an evaluation of his
mental state along with his client who was obviously on the verge of
delusion before she was arrested. It’s either one of the options
stated above or he is trying to engage in a proxy war on behalf of
some unknown agents who had become irritated by Apostle’s stand on
national issues. His inference to the latter incident in Keyamo’s
letter to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) confirms this benign
thought”, he declared.
“We are not surprised that this serial blackmailer decided to join
forces with a serial divorcee, who has had five children from four
failed marriages to make this phantom claim. But we dare to ask; Is a
serial blackmailer and  or a serial divorcee capable of understanding
the sanctity of the institution called marriage?The nature of their
mental torpidity is understandable and we invite more recondite  and
decent persons to read in between the lines and separate the wheats
from the chaff.”
“In this well coordinated plot to pull  down Apostle Suleman at all
costs, the lines of Reuben Abati will suffice ; “lies have become
standard stuff, mischief a major commodity, and indecency a character
flaw. “
If Keyamo and his Canada-returnee client think they can capitalize on
the famed generosity of Apostle Suleman to extort N500million through
this plot, they sure have missed it as shall have our day in court.”
