The general overseer of Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleman, has raised an alarm accusing human rights lawyer, Festus Keyamo, and his alleged paymasters of concluded plans to unveil his cloned video clips allegedly in a desperate bid to prove that the Christian leader had an amorous relationship with one Miss Stephanie Otobo.
Contacted, Keyamo, who spoke through one of his lawyers, Barrister Uche Moneke, simply laughed off the allegation.
“Hahahaha. I am Bar Uche Moneke, one of the lawyers in charge of this matter in Festus Keyamo Chambers. This is just hilarious.
“I hope they are not setting the stage to harm our client and later say ‘we said so’. Mr. Keyamo is not even personally involved in this matter.
“It is just a client of our chambers and the so-called man of God that has issues. Mr Keyamo has even been in Abuja all these while, and we in the Lagos office are in charge of the case.
“They should leave Mr Keyamo out of it and face their problems. We are just lawyers doing our brief professionally. This is desperation taken to another level.”
NAIJ.com learnt at the time of this report that Miss Otobo was at the Lagos office of Kayamo’s chamber speaking with journalists over the alleged romance between him and Suleman
A statement by Phrank Shaibu, the spokesperson for Apostle Suleman, to NAIJ.com said the church gathered that“Keyamo and his paymasters have also decided to kill or terribly harm the said Miss Otobo and frame Apostle Suleman or his agents as being responsible for the heinous act.”
The statement released in Abuja said“intelligence available indicates that Keyamo and his paymasters are bent on nailing the pastor for daring to stand against and speak up against the ploy by leaders of a section of the country against Christians.”
Shuaibu said in the statement: “We have it on good authority that some persons have been in a hotel in Lagos where they are daily undergoing voice training and learning how to speak like Apostle Suleman. Others are also recreating scenes and editing video clips to give the impression that our Senior Pastor is involved. All in a bid to want to nail him.”
Shaibu therefore urged Nigerians to regard the videos when they become public as counterfeit, pointing out that the plan by Keyamo and his paymasters to silence the general overseer and thereby annihilate Christians in the country would fail.
“Is it a coincidence that the so called scandal is coming up no soon after Apostle Suleman spoke against the persecution of Christians in Kaduna?
“Why is a matter purportedly perpetrated since 2015 coming up now. And who is paying for the high intrigue and drama daily injected into the process?” He asked.
The spokesman is however worried that Miss Otobo may be killed or severely harmed as a ditch effort to implicate Apostle Suleman giving that all other plans to nail him has failed abysmally.
“That is our fear. That they would not be patient to allow the courts do their job. Infact, they have not even gone to court.
“They are not ready to wait for the truth to come out. We are reliably informed that they may kill her or cause severe bodily harm and turn round to say that it is our pastor that did it.
“We cannot put anything past them at this stage,” he declared.
He reiterated the determination of the fiery pastor to defend his name and that of the church from attack by agents of Satan, pointing out that what is happening now did not come as a surprise to the ministry.
“When Archbishop Olubunmi Okogie spoke forcefully against misrule of government, the military authorities unsuccessfully tried to nail him with a woman.
“When Pastor Tunde Bakare could not be cowed by an unpopular administration, they also tried to do same to him.
“So it is consistent for the same evil men to want to shut up Apostle Suleiman as a critical voice of reason against the persecution of Christians in a section of the country,” he added.
