A Cleric, Prophet Sunday Iyunade, has on
Sunday, said the current travails of the General Overseer of Omega Fire
Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleman, were consequences of his public
criticisms of government.
Iyunade, who is the President,
Pentecostal Sanctuary Bible Ministries, with headquarters in Ijebu-Ode,
Ogun State, declared that State agents allegedly masterminded the whole
infidelity drama surrounding the fiery Cleric, in order to tarnish his
name and put him in check.
According to reports, Apostle Suleman
has been at loggerhead with the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir
El-Rufai, and the Department of State Security Services, DSS, for
threatening to kill Fulani herdsmen.
The recent attempt to arrest him in the
mid-night in Ekiti State, by the DSS, was foiled by the Ekiti Sate
Governor, Ayodele Fayose.
After that, an alleged amorous
relationship between Apostle Suleman and a Canada-based lady, Stephanie
Otobo, had recently sparked controversy, with both parties threatening
legal actions in the media.
However, addressing a Press Conference
to herald the 21st anniversary of the church, in Ijebu-Ode, during the
weekend, Iyunade said Suleman might have suffered for daring to speak up
against the plot by certain leaders in the country against Christians.
He noted, that though Christians played a
key role in installing the President Muhammadu Buhari administration,
they had become the first casualty, due to some negative policies of the
He however, urged Christians not to be cowed, saying they must pray fervently to avert unpleasant occurrences in the nation.
Meanwhile, another Lady, Queen Esther, a
resident of Kaduna, allegedly hired by El-Rufai, has on Sunday,
revealed her sexual relationship with Apostle Johnson Suleman.
This shocking disclosure came barely one
week after a lady, Stephanie Otobo, claimed she was in a sexual
relationship with the Cleric, and later denied the claims.
Queen Esther, in an exclusive interview
with Premium Times, stated that she began a s exual relationship with
Suleman in 2013, before a “catastrophic break-up” a year later.
“I was an usher in his branch church,
but I had a sexual relationship with him, as he lured me into it, in
order to solve my spiritual problem and limitations to success in career
and marriage, but after the se x he didn’t solve the problems for me,
instead he started making proposal for us to marry.’’
“I dated Apostle Suleman while I was a
member in his church, he was my Pastor, spiritual director, and mentor,
aside being a boyfriend, from August 2013 to 2014 April, ” she said.
Esther disclosed further, that Suleman’s
wife got to know about her affair with the Cleric, a reason for her
decision to end the relationship.
“I told him to give me a break in the
relationship, so I can stay away from his wife’s view, and also get
married to a single suitor I had at that time, instead he felt I was
breaking up with him and began to threaten me, that I hurt him and that I
will see the consequences of hurting him,” the lady said.
“Barely seven days after that, my body
changed, I began to have strange movements in my body, my womb, sharp
pains in my left breast,” she continued.
“I was taken to many places by my
family, and we were told that my boyfriend used me for sacrifice and
wants to kill me. Suleman sent me text messages threatening that I will
die, I almost died if my God didn’t rescue me. So all my attempts to get
him to heal me failed. I went to his father, his father tried to talk
to him, but he denied doing anything to me, till today.”
Esther turned down Premium Times’
request to produce her photograph – or her real identity – saying she
wants to first seek the protection of El-Rufai, from Suleman and “his
team of magicians.”
“In the wake of this current sex scandal
between Miss Otobo Stephanie and Johnson Suleiman, I started having
strange calls from people who speak Auchi language while making
incantations on me once I pick their phone calls,” she said.
“I cannot be able to send my picture now till am (sic) sure of my protection from his followers’ attacks.
“Many ladies are victims of Johnson
Suleman, but they are afraid to come out publicly, because they fear the
consequences attached to their public stand against him, which is a
possible spiritual attack and destruction on their life and destiny.”
A top official of the Kaduna State
government, confirmed that they received a request for protection from
Esther, but added that the government does not want to be involved in
