Sex scandal: Apostle Suleman bars Church members from public comments

The Omega Fire Ministry Worldwide has barred members from making further comments or statements on the alleged sexual relationship involving its overseer, Johnson Suleman.

In a statement issued by the Directorate of Media, the church said commentaries on the matter had overstayed their relevance and the members should no longer allow themselves be distracted by it.

“It has become imperative that we advise all Omega Children and Christians Worldwide to put an end to the ongoing media war that we have engaged in,” the church said in the statement seen by PREMIUM TIMES.

“Every wise person would know that this is not a battle of humans but one between the Kingdom of God and that of darkness.

“Therefore, nobody is permitted further to issue a statement or comment on the matter. All Facebook Live Videos on the issue should also stop forthwith. It is advised that we spend our time concentrating on more relevant issues that bothers on the Kingdom.

“We are well aware were all these are coming from and we will deal with it spiritually.”

The statement came just as a second lady, who identified herself as Queen Esther, came forward on Sunday to speak about an alleged sexual relationship with Mr. Suleman (popularly known as Apostle Suleman).

For the most of last week, Mr. Suleman and a Canada-based singer, Stephanie Otobo, traded accusations over allegations of sexual affair, forceful abortion of pregnancy, and breach of marriage promise.

Mr. Suleman had denied the allegations.

‘I’M TOUGH’

On Sunday, Mr. Suleman’s spokesperson, Phrank Shaibu, declined further comments on the matter.

But in several videos posted online by Celebration TV, the church’s television arm, Mr. Suleman told his congregation that those behind the allegations would be destroyed within 24 hours.

One of the videos was uploaded on You Tube on Saturday.

“God just told me something. And in 24 hours, marine will be disgraced publicly. Marine…I’m not just prophesying on you, I’m prophesying on myself. In 24 hours, the truth will be exposed,” Mr. Suleman told his church members amidst cheers.

“In 24 hours, the marine kingdom will be disappointed. Kingdom of the water and their representatives, that made themselves available tool will be disgraced. And they shall know that it’s the ‘I am that I am’ that sent me.

“We don’t fight with our mouth; we fight with our knees. We can’t do certain things and still carry the anointing that we carry, no we don’t do that nonsense.

“If I’m true or not true, real or not real, 24 hours. I’m tough mehn, I’m tough. You don’t see me preaching? Do I look shaky? Do I look worried? Get a better agent.

“If the devil wants people to start doubting you, he attacks your reputation. We know this. And they won’t stop. It’s the truth. One problem, because I said ‘don’t kill Christians.’ That’s all. There’s nothing else. You come out doing drama, acting movies. You should have at least… get somebody that people will believe, look for a presentable, not this..uhmmm. Come on! Come on! Haba!

“I’ve travelled round the world, I’ve seen all things, is it that thing? Ah! If I were to go to the market there are people that will sell pepper to me I won’t buy,” Mr. Suleman said in apparent response to Ms. Otobo.

In another video, he told his congregation not to expect the enemies to fold their hands during the fight because it’s not a physical battle.

“And the truth is, the people who were busy actually spreading it were Christians, were pastors trying to discredit some of you that believe in this Grace.

“Please, when you get back, ask them ‘how far?’ And please mark those people, they are not your friends. If they are in your Facebook, or your this thing, tell them you are deleting them.

“Because even some unbelievers knew that this is a set up. Before now, nowhere, scan me on the internet you can’t see one stain. Because by then I didn’t say ‘stop killing Christians.’ The only time I said ‘stop’ was why they said ‘Ok, we will come.’ But the church will always win.

“I’m not going to say anything until Sunday. And if I’m saying anything at all it’s not because of the person involved, it’s because of Christians. Because they know that our weakness is because we are not united. And that my stand in January united Christians, that is what they want to scatter.

“All over the world Christians were crying out. So they said ‘these people are these united? Who spearheaded it? Him. Ok, let’s face him.’

“There are things when Christians here, I’m sorry to say that even some members of these our church were having double minds. Please mark those members. If they are in departments, remove them, because those are demons. You see me every day and somebody can tell you certain things?”

Mr. Suleman also thanked his wife, who had risen in his support when reports of the alleged scandal broke last week.

“As I speak to you now, I have not watched her video, where she said what she said, I’ve not read it. Am I correct honey?” He continued, turning to his wife.

“I refused. Everything about this, it’s Mama that’s been telling me, then some things some pastors will say ‘she said this.’ Reverend Fidelis called me one time and said this is on Sahara desert? Is it Sahara desert? I said don’t tell me, there are things I don’t want to get into my mind.

“Somebody tells you he wants a child, the next thing person gives you something to drink, to remove a child. They could have planned it well, the story is not,..they could have looked for a very good script writer.

“But my joy is, I will be alive to see the reward of the wicked. Please, the same way they were spreading it, when it’s uploaded spread it. Tell our media people let it go more than viral.”

Mr. Suleman’s statement asking his church members to “spread” his video appears to have come before the media directorate’s directive that “All Facebook Live Videos on the issue should also stop forthwith.”

The spokesperson’s refusal to make further comments on the matter made it difficult to further clarify the church’s stance.

Although he insisted it was his comments about the killings in Southern Kaduna that triggered the entire incident, Mr. Suleman said he would continue speaking out.

“Let me beg you, if you’re a pastor, understand, you are not fighting a physical fight,” he said.

“The three fights of Joseph, one was from his brothers. Two was for his reputation, his garment was with Potiphar’s wife, how can you deny it? Three was from government, Potiphar put him in prison.

“Every minister must go through these three phases: the brethren will fight you, your reputation will be targeted, then government will come after you. I’ve passed through the three.”

    Man of god or man of women

    • Peter_Edo

      both! after all, the only man after God’s heart in the Bible is David, the same david that sent the husband of a hot girl he was tripping for to the front of the lines to get killed so he can have her, the same david that they had to test his manhood with a virgin to confirm if he was dead.

  • GEJ FOREVER

    SO CALLED APOSTLE SULEIMAN MUST STOP FOOLING HIMSELF AND HIS MEMBERS

    Matters here are simple: … the lady said you transferred money to her UBA Account about three times ….. did you or did you not … Yes or No …. that is what we want from you not all these rubbish talk about “marine”.

    The Lady said you sent her $6000 thru an agent for her to buy ticket …. did you or did you not …. Yes or No …. period!

    Just give us yes or no answers to all that the Lady has so far alleged …. that is all we want …. nothing more.

    All these rambling about “marine” are pure rubbish, meant only for consumption by gullible fools and your misguided members …. they don’t help but establish your guilt in discerning minds.

    • Peter_Edo

      Wow, there is hope for Nigeria. Across political divides, we can still see eye to eye on some serious issues. Horny and randy pastor suleiman….

  • Galantman

    In a sane society, the church could have been empty by now, UNTIL he clear himself. But alas there conscience have been blocked

    • Peter_Edo

      Most of us have been brainwashed and easily because of our background in illiteracy (i don’t mean reading and writing, i mean exposure to serious scientific way of life and poverty of the mind and spirit)

  • tundemash

    It serves the mumu gullible followers right to ban them from reading and posting. He should also ban them from watching TV and using their phones since he is their god.

    Suleman said “God just told me something. And in 24 hours, marine will be disgraced publicly. Marine…I’m not just prophesying on you, I’m prophesying on myself. In 24 hours, the truth will be exposed,” Mr. Suleman told his church members amidst cheers.

    What happened to the fake prophecy of last year that Giv. Elrufai will die ?

  • DD

    LOL he knows that his gullible followers will follow him to the point of death. Naija christians mumu no get part 2.

  • Lateef Adepoju

    This guy needs an URGENT psychiatric assessment. He appears to be suffering from thought disorders.

    • absam777

  • clairvoyance

    Just a reminder Apostle it is 48hrs nothing as happened your prophecy was 24hrs which is Saturday and I am commenting here Monday morning 8:22am or should we wait till 8pm Nigerian time peradventure your god shifted your request by 1 day. Seek for repentance and stop this grand standing you are guilty God will forgive someone will not come in handy to accuse you falsely, the lady is a Christian so stop making it an issue to feel it was your statement against the Fulani herdsmen attack that is why they are after you cause you make me confuse, now we don’t know who if it is your imaginary marine kingdom or the government , my advice to you stop digging more holes for yourself because you have been cornered so face and exorcise those demons and not this blame games to draw sympathy even your Pentecostal and CAN are silent about this because they know you are cornered.

    • Benedicta

  • Amir

    This pastor is a good candidate for Nollywood. Home video producers over to you.

  • Bahaushe

    I think his flocks would be much more wiser than his imagination, when financial reporting council of Nigeria attempted to include churches for financial reporting they kicked against it knowing fully they would be exposed.Now that church goers have seen where their tithe is going, they would lend their voice on church accountability. Where else on earth a pastor will be buying luxurious jeep for Monica if not in Nigeria?Church goers use your brains wisely don’t be deceived by Satan wearing religious toga.Luckily enough the forthcoming Monicas are neither from the North nor Fulani collaborators.

  • Gabriel k

    be careful of the false rumor you are spreading against leaders of the church because wen the wrath of god meet you, you will cry hard i known. pray for all the leaders of the church instead of castigating them because if you are facing one problem, theirs is ten times. may God bless, keep and protect all His servant working in his vineyard especially my dearest priest ‘R

  • Bahaushe

    What DSS are waiting for looking the other way round instead of picking this alien sex predator allowing him to continue deceiving his illiterate flocks. I’m sure he must have been cooling his pant inside prison it it is in America or Europe these criminality happened.

    • Okay

      In America and Europe everything will be investigated.Talk is cheap

  • Chidi

    Ha, Suleman Johnson: did you sleep with, lick, ‘fork’ or spoon Stephanie? You leave question dey talk rubbish!
    Nollywood pastors! Whistle blower policy is excellent- need to be backed by law at state and federal level.

    • TRUTH MASTER

      Let the Apostle read Galatians 6:7

  • Abdulkadir

    It is quite obvious that Pastors understand that the only way to keep people’s interest entrenched in the followership of the Church is to give the people an enemy to hate. Once they are convinced that their misfortunes are coming from a source, no matter how unreasonable things may be, they will always blame it on the perceived enemy. Under such situation, the pastor has elevated himself to a status of a god. Suleiman should realise that he is just flesh and bone and is gullible just as he think of his followers. There is no government in this, nor is there any recalcitrant Christians against him. When he removed his penis and is putting it into Otobo virgina, not a single soul but the two of them were there, so if their is any blame, they should share it between themselves. Suleiman fucked the lady real good, she admitted to that fact.

    All said, I do agree that Otobo wanted to milk the man of god dry. She had succeeded twice, or may be trice, but such people always keep coming once a source is green. In her third bid, Suleiman decide to call it halt. So she decided to make her threat real. She knew she had nothing to lose, and she also understand that he has everything to lose, so they started the season film. Suleiman should just enjoy the show while it last. No government, no DSS is in this one.

  • Kwame

    The pussy pastor, Toronto certified.

  • Julius

    Ha, it seems this no be christianity again ooo, be like cult ! This bastard is going down fast and the sad part is some of his mumu followers will stick with him and donate the settlement funds. Haba, why must human makes others suffer ?

      • Julius

        Oh, you know the see no evil, hear no evil but evils themselves crowd are pretending not to know what’s going on because it doesn’t fit their nonsense narratives. They are exposed as liars and hypocrites. Fayose might even fund his legal bills. Stay tuned !

      • Marcus Ijele

        This is an evil time, and the prudent maintains silence. That s their noble and wise position. So you are the mad one.

        • tundemash

          So using your logic, you mini-god Suleman is mad for not keeping quiet!
          And by the way did your god not just issued an instruction for your to stop posting on the subject ?

          • Marcus Ijele

            Correct your grammar first.

          • Sir Demo

  • TRUTH MASTER

    To Apostle Suleman, I recommended the reading of Galatians 6:7

  • Man_Enough

    Proverbs 28:13. “He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy”. I need not remind the prophet of this.

    • Okay

      Everything will be exposed in due time.

  • Africa

    ‘If your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off, and throw it away from you’ Mathew 5:30. Apostle Sulaiman cut off your dick so that you may cease to sin.
