Apostle Johnson Suleman has finally given his first reaction to the [email protected]:’ual allegation against him by Stephanie Otobo saying he was aware but will give a full response at the appropriate time.
Otobo had released series of videos accusing the founder of Omega Fire Ministry of having a romantic relationship with her and then responsible for the termination of her pregnancy,
Although Apostle Suleman had not responded to the allegation, his publicity, Phrank Shaibu, had released statement denying the allegations.
Premium Times reports that Apostle Suleman spoke on the issue for the first tie after a church service saying he was aware of the allegations but will open up “only do so at the appropriate time.”
We had reported that Ms Otobo was arraigned for alleged blackmail, threat to life, conspiracy, and intent to steal from Mr. Suleman.
She was later released and granted bail in the sum of N100,000 with the case adjourned to April 27.
Stephanie Otobo’s mother, Bukky had also gone to beg Apostle Suleman saying she did it as a mother for her daughter.
She said: “I did that because of my daughter, (and) because I am a mother. The way I am seeing her is not the way I brought her up. And all those her character is not giving me happiness which I want to put an end to. That is why I went to Auchi.”
“No, nobody threatened me. It is because I am a mother. When I saw what was going on, the day you people came to the market I said I wanted to go and meet the man of God to apologise so that we can put an end to the matter
“Because I know my daughter. I did not bring her up this way and the way she is behaving is not normal. So, I said I want to go and beg the man of God to forgive her so that this matter can die off.
“Because I cannot continue with this (and) the way I am seeing it, I don’t want anything of such to happen again. Nobody threatened to kill me or prompted me to do so. I went there on my own to apologise to man of God.”
When asked what she wanted, she said she wanted her daughter to be forgiven and the matter killed.
“What I am still saying is that they should pardon her and the matter should just go down like that. They should forgive this matter because they’ve been manipulating her because this is not her real self.
“She was not behaving like this before. It seems all those lawyers are manipulating her, using her to say all this rubbish and bringing all this things out.
“So I begged that this matter should die down now because this is not my real daughter. I believe somebody must have been manipulating her. All those lawyers (and) all those her friends are using her. “
“This is not the way I brought her up because I brought many children up. They are not behaving like this. Somebody is brainwashing her, polluting her mind and that is what is making her to do all this things that she is doing now.”
