Former Omega Fire Ministries (OFM) pastor Mike Davids has threatened to expose the “truths” behind Stephanie Otobo’s alleged sex scandal with general overseer Apostle Johnson Suleman.
Davids is the man accusing Suleman of hypnotising his wife and having sex with her in the presence of their baby daughter. He also accused the apostle of denying him access to his wife and children.
Davids’ wife Faith Edeko and Suleman denied the allegations, with the apostle dragging Davids to court for alleged libel.
In 2017 and 2018, Canada-based Otobo alleged she had sexual relations with Suleman.
Davids, in a recent video claimed that he and Apostle Suleman both knew how they got Otobo to come to the church in Auchi and apologise over the alleged scandal, and how they persuaded her mother too.
“I left the church (Omega Fire Ministries) of my freewill,” Davids said, denying Suleman’s claim that he was expelled.
“You (Suleman) were never the one who sent me out of that ministry. I was tired of your ungodliness as a leader. And that was the major reason I left that ministry.
“So, forget those manipulations and cheap lies.
“We all know the part I played in the Stephanie Otobo saga. You know as much as I do. How much involved I was in bringing that saga to a halt. I don’t even need to mention names.
“You knew how we got Stephanie Otobo to come to the altar and apologise to mama (Suleman’s wife) and brought Stephanie Otobo’s mother to Auchi.
“I am coming to that issue because you are pushing me to that extent, Apostle Johnson Suleman as much as I knew what happened.
“Thirdly, I am also aware that my account has been frozen. You have also released police officers to get me arrested.
“You have 48 hours to ask those who are blocking my account to unblock it. You will not like what is going to follow.”
In January 2018, a video emerged appearing to show Stephanie Otobo, the alleged mistress of Suleman, who accused him of impregnating her and breaching a promise to marry her.
She later said she was paid to defame the pastor. According to her, some “very strong and powerful politicians and pastors” deceived her.
The video of her confession had been posted on the church’s official Facebook page.
Otobo’s lawyer, Festus Keyamo, had said he could not confirm or deny the video.
“We saw the video online on Saturday morning but we are yet to get any formal statement from Stephanie confirming or debunking the video,” Keyamo said.
“We are lawyers and we only act on our client’s instructions. So, we don’t have any comment on the matter,” he had said.
Otobo who said she came to Nigeria from Canada with the intention to further her career. She said she succumbed to the manipulation of the politicians and pastors because she was told it would help her career.
“They paid me a lot of money,” she said, wiping tears from her eyes.
