I didn’t promise Stephanie Otobo marriage -Apostle Suleman

Ebun Francis || Apostle Johnson Suleman, The General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries, on Monday said he did not have an amorous relationship with Stephanie Otobo and never promised to marry her.

It will be recalled that a legal practitioner, Festus Keyamo, had demanded N500m on behalf of Otobo who was arrested by the police last Friday as he accused Apostle Suleman of allegedly procuring policemen to intimidate and detain his client unlawfully, having earlier promised to marry her.

However,  in a statement by his Communications Manager, Phrank Shaibu, Apostle Suleman said there was no amorous relationship between the said Otobo and himself, including a promise to marry her.

 According to the statement, Keyamo was misled into believing that there was an amorous relationship between Apostle Suleman and Otobo, adding 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 police.”

 “Unknown to Keyamo, the police was alerted following several attempts by the said lady to blackmail Apostle Suleiman. The police also recorded her conversations while making the frivolous demand.

“The high point 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 abundant evidence confirming that she is, indeed, a serial blackmailer.

“Let me place it 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 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 Suleman or his representatives to her parents?

“In any case, how could such a relationship have existed when the 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 had in Canada when he has never been to her house or seen her physically as to have an idea of her living standards?”
