The General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries (OFM), Apostle Johnson Suleman, has broken his silence after surviving an assassination attempt in Auchi, Edo State, on Friday, October 21.
It was earlier reported that gunmen attacked the clergyman’s convoy along Warake road in Auchi.
The assailants opened fire at them and killed seven persons – four policemen, one driver and a lady. Fortunately for the clergyman, he and his family managed to escape unhurt.
Speaking for the first time after the gruesome attack, Apostle Suleman in a video shared on his church’s social media page, said he knows those behind the attack but won’t mention their names. According to him, he knows they will come out to debunk the allegation.
He said in part,
“I just escaped an assassination attempt where seven people were killed. They opened fire on my car. My wife and my kids were there. The escort car with police, they killed the policemen. They killed the other people in the escort car, the bus, that were with us. They killed seven people.
People who did this are expecting me to come out and mention their names, so they can come out and deny it but I won’t do that. The truth of the matter is, you can’t kill me, my life is in the hand of God, I’m a man of God.”
Addressing the controversy that has been surrounding his life for years, the clergyman said ‘a coordinated lie swallows an uncoordinated truth’ and with time, the truth will come out.
