– Apostle Johnson Suleman has for the first time spoken up about a reported police probe against him
– The general overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries International discredits the entire report
– Suleman revealed why the news is trending in the media
The general overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries International, Apostle Johnson Suleman, has reacted to a news report that he is being probed by the police over an alleged extramarital affair with a pastor’s wife.
The religious leader in a tweet on Monday, January 25, distanced himself from the allegations.
He said such allegations were not been brought to his notice in the past, pointing out that he was just reading about the allegations for the first time.
Suleman urged the public to disregard the report, saying the story was spreading fast because it is negative press.
The cleric said:
“IGP orders probe on me? where, when?.maybe my ghost just reading stories now. Please discard..There is no such thing..Bad press really sells fast”
Legit.ng had earlier cited a report in the Punch newspaper which claimed that the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, ordered the probe on Suleman following the accusation that he was having a romantic affair with a married female pastor, Faith Edeko.
According to the report, the husband of the woman, Mike Davids, is also a pastor, was said to have petitioned the police over the issue.
Davids in a petition to the IGP through his lawyer accused Suleman of dating his wife and destroying his marriage.
He said his wife confessed to him that the religious leader had extramarital affair with her when she went to help him to set up a gospel television station.
This is not the first time Suleman will be facing such an allegation. A Canadian based Nigerian singer Stephanie Otobo, once claimed to have had an affair with the religious leader.
She had accused him of impregnating and breaching a promise to marry her.
However, Otobo later retracted her claim, saying she was paid to defame the pastor.
