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.

 

Stephanie Otobo evidence of money transfers from Apostle Suleman

The scandal rocking Apostle Johnson Suleman and his Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide has taken a new dimension as Stephanie Otobo, the alleged mistress of the pastor, has publicized evidence detailing money transfers from the pastor.

On Saturday April 8, 2017, SaharaReporters published documents showing that Apostle Suleman made several direct deposits into Miss Otobo’s account to the tune of N2 million, all between June 1 and December 31, 2015.

The pastor, however, appeared to change the mode of paying into Ms. Otobo’s account by November 2015, using third parties as proxies instead. On November 4, 2015, a depositor identified as Adewunmi TO made a web-based deposit into Miss Otobo’s account.

By the end of 2015, another person, identified as Gbenga Adegbadebo, deposited the sum of N340,000 on November 10, N238,000 on November 24, and N170,000 on December 10. Miss Otobo also said that Mr. Adegbadebo, a Nigerian based in Canada, was used as a means for transferring foreign currencies to her in Canada.

In her latest revelation, Miss Otobo also said that she conducted an HIV test in October 2016 when she got pregnant for the apostle while in Canada to prove that she was HIV-free. The result of the test was also published on SaharaReporters.

Miss Otobo said that Apostle Suleman has recently been harassing his mother, by coercing her and her siblings to appear in his church to apologize publicly in front of the congregation, while recruiting internet trolls to harass her (Stephanie) on the internet.
