General Overseer, Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleman, has reacted to claims which trailed the confession Stephanie Otobo made in his church last week, after months of bitter court and media battle, sparked by Stephanie Otobo’s accusation of the Pastor getting her pregnant, giving her a concoction to terminate the pregnancy and eventually dumping her.
Recall that Stephanie Otobo, who made a shocking confession at Apostle Suleman’s church, claimed she was paid by politicians to make false accusations of infidelity against the Pastor.
Apostle Suleman who reacted to the new claims, tweeted;
“Only a fool will pay a blackmailer to come out and say d truth. It’s risky to do that cos she will use it against u 2moro..dis is God at work
The enemies of the church are confessing like witches. All happening same time…Lies have a lifespan, only truth is ageless….Fear God..
Recall that the counsel to Stephanie Otobo, the Festus Keyamo Chambers, had alleged that the mistress of fiery cleric, Johnson Suleman, reacted to the video released on Saturday, appearing to show their client saying she was paid to defame the pastor.
Speaking with PREMIUM TIMES on Saturday Ms. Otobo’s lawyer, Festus Afeiyadion, revealed that he could not confirm or deny the video.
“We saw the video online on Saturday morning but we are yet to get any formal statement from Stephanie confirming or debunking the video. We are lawyers and we only act on our client’s instructions. So, we don’t have any comment on the matter,” he said.
Asked on what becomes of the pending court case, he said, “No comment, we are waiting to hear from our client first before we know the next line of action.”
This comes on the heels of the defamation suit filed by the cleric against Ms. Otobo in November 2017, at the Lagos State High Court in Ikeja.
The hearing was stalled following Ms. Otobo’s absence in court and the presiding judge, Adedayo Oyebanji, adjourned the matter to February 7.
Meanwhile mixed reactions have trailed Ms. Otobo’s sudden U-turn.
