Police start investigating Apostle Suleman for ‘chopping’ his junior pastor’s wife in Nigeria.
Adepanews.com has come across a video, which has a man disclosing his bitter experience with a popular Nigerian pastor while he was serving him as a junior pastor.
The investigation comes on the back of a petition by Mike Davids, a former cleric at the church, that Suleman allegedly slept with Faith Edeko, his wife, who currently heads the Abuja branch of Omega Fire Ministries in Utako.
Apostle Johnson Suleman has found himself in another sex scandal barely four years after he was accused by Stephanie Otobo and a lady identified as Queen Esther.
This time, the accusation is coming from Pastor Mike Davids, who has left his church but claimed that the General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries International slept with his wife Pastor Faith Edeko, who heads the Abuja branch of the church in Utako.
In the petition, Davids said he met Apostle Suleman in 2003 while he was in school and that the clergyman eventually ordained him a pastor in Omega Fire Ministries on June 9, 2006 after they became very close. He said he served the church for over 15 years before he left in 2019. He attached his pastoral certificate with license number 125 to the petition.
In three videos posted online on Sunday, January 24, Pastor Davids said he and his wife, Faith, began dating while in secondary school and that they courted for about 11 years before they got married.
Narrating his ordeal he said
“My wife was a staffer with NTA Iruekpen, so Apostle Suleman reached out to her that they will need her to build Celebration TV and Rhema for Living. She would have to shuttle between Osun State and Auchi.
She came back from Auchi to Osun State and said she wanted to talk to me that her conscience was pricking her. I asked what was it and she said that while in Auchi, Apostle Suleman lodged her at Uyi Grand Hotel and he came there and slept with her.
And the moment she said that, the first thing that came to my mind was my daughter. I asked where was Michelle when this happened and she said Michelle was on the bed, pushed aside and I asked, ‘You mean you slept with a man with my daughter on the bed?’. I had to let it go because there was nobody I could tell and I couldn’t fight with Apostle Suleman… I forgave her but the amorous relationship continued. One thing I know is that my wife was hypnotised. This is not the woman I got married to, who I knew for 11 years.”Davids claimed
“Apostle Suleman has given her a branch of the church in Utako, Abuja to head without permission. I am calling on Pastor David Oyedepo, Pastor Paul Enenche, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, Pastor Margaret Idahosa, CAN, PFN.
Apostle Suleman has damaged my life. I have not seen my wife and children for two years and Apostle Suleman says if I ever go near them, he will have me taken out. I have a video where he said he will make me disappear. I don’t want to lose my life.”
The police letter which is titled, ‘Re: Criminal Petition Against Apostle Johnson Suleman for Enticement of a Married Woman; Adultery; Unlawful Criminal Restraint to Access Children and Threat to Life’, reads in part
“I attach herewith a copy of a letter dated December 30, 2020 with its attachments received from V.C Ezenagu & Associates on the above-underlined subject. The Inspector-General of Police directs that you treat. Accept the assurances of my esteemed regards please.”
Apostle Suleman is yet to comment on the allegation.
