Stephanie Otobo files $5m lawsuit against Apostle Suleman in Canada

Stephanie Otobo, the Canada-based Nigerian songstress, has filed a $5 million lawsuit against Apostle Johnson Suleman, General Overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries, who is embroiled in a sex scandal with the plaintiff.

In a letter addressed to Apostle Suleman’s Ontario residence and signed by the Registrar of the Ontario Superior Court, dated April 19, 2017 with case file number CV-17-573595, Otobo is seeking $5 million (Canadian dollars) for damages resulting from breach of trust, breach of fiduciary relations, breach of contract, negligence, defamation, poisoning, intentional and negligent infliction of emotional stress, forcible confinement, multiple instances of battery, false imprisonment, fraud, assaults, sexual assaults, sexual harrasments, harrasments and malicious prosecution.

The suit also seeks an order to restrain Suleman from contacting or communicating with Ms. Otobo, directly or indirectly while in Canada, and requesting Apostle Suleman to keep a distance of at least 500 meters from the plaintiff.

Apostle Suleman has forty days to file a statement of defense in response to the suit, in line with Canadian laws. In the event that Suleman fails to appear before the Ontario Superior Court, a judgment may still be given in his absence without further notice given to him.
