The founder of Auchi-based Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleiman, has been sued by a Canadian based lover, Stephanie Otobo, who is claiming N500 million as damages.
But the “Man of God” has denied the allegations from the assumed mistress.
Stephanie filed the suit against the Apostle for allegedly getting her pregnant and dumping her.
Her Counsel, Festus Keyamo chambers has also written a letter to the Inspector General of police, Pulse reported.
According to Court papers, Suleiman and Stephanie met in 2016 in Canada and allegedly began a secret affair. She claimed he informed her of his plan to divorce his wife, Lizzy, to marry her and have more male children.
Stephanie, who is a musician with stage name Kimora, left her base in Canada to Nigeria so she can be close to her pastor/secret lover. She says during sex, Pastor Suleiman would lick her all over her body including her vagina and had suggested that they have group sex with her friends. Stephanie says he got her detained after she told him she was pregnant.
She says she has naked photos as well as screenshots of raunchy messages they sent to themselves.
Stephanie claims she became a member of the Apostle Suleiman’s church, and followed him every where. He sent her money regularly according to her and she claims he asked her to get pregnant.
But when she informed him in September 2016 that she was pregnant in a hotel in Ikeja, Stephanie claims Apostle Suleiman flew into a rage and asked her to abort it, fearing scandal.
Stephanie claims that Pastor Suleiman gave her a concoction that made her bleed and he ended their relationship.
According to the story, Stephanie went to Warri and relayed the whole story to another pastor who recorded it and started using it to extort money from Suleiman.
Stephanie said she returned to Canada afterwards but Apostle Suleiman contacted her again, apologized and asked her to return to Nigeria. And when she returned to Nigeria last week, she claims he put money into her account and subsequently froze the account.
It was will Stephanie was trying to withdraw money from the account at a UBA bank after her ATM refused to work, that she was arrested on orders of Apostle Suleiman who had reported her of being a blackmailer.
After her arrest, Stephanie filed a lawsuit against Apostle Suleiman demanding to be paid N500million as damages for not honouring his promise to marry her and for harassment and threat to her life.
In the letter to the Inspector-General of Police, Keyamo Chambers said Stephanie was arrested on March 3 at a UBA branch in Anthony Village by heavily armed policemen from Federal Criminal Investigations Department (FCID), Alagbon. She’s since been in detention where her lawyers claim they have denied her access to them.
Keyamo Chambers has given Suleiman a 7-day ultimatum to release Stephanie, meet their demands or be dragged to court.
Meanwhile, Suleiman has denied having amorous relationship with Otobo.
A statement by the Communication Manager to Suleiman, Mr Phrank Shuaibu, stated that Otobo was making false allegation.
He stated that the Lady was caught by her own machination as she was arrested while trying to withdraw money paid into her account by the Church in a sting operation coordinated by the police.
“Unknown to Keyamo, the police was alerted following several attempts by the said lady to blackmail Suleiman”.
“The police also recorded her conversation making 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 s=that she is indeed a serial blackmailer.
“`Let me put on record that the lady in question is a self-confessed stripper in a night club in Canada, who like thousands of people that seek help from Apostle Johnson Suleiman, called to pretentiously convey her intentions to embrace Christ and also needed financial help to keep body and should as she no longer had a means of livelihood after quitting as a stripper.”
