Barely one week after a lady, Stephanie Otobo, claimed she was in a
sexual relationship with the overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries
Worldwide, Johnson Suleman, another lady has also said she was in a
similar sexual relationship with the cleric.
Queen Esther, according to her, began a
sexual relationship with Mr. Suleman in 2013 before a “catastrophic break-up” a year later.
She claimed she was an usher in his church through which process he lured her into having sex with him under the pretence of solving her spiritual problem
and limitations to success in career and marriage.
“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 told an online portal Premium Times.
Ms. Esther’s claims came two days after Otobo, a Canadian-based
singer, told journalists about her alleged amorous affair with the
Mr. Suleman denies all the allegations.
The preacher’s wife, Lizy, had also risen in support of her husband,
insisting his alleged persecution is the handiwork of the powers that be
in the political circles.
Ms. Esther said that Mr. 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,”
“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 of 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.”
On whether she could provide photo evidences, Esther turned down request to produce her
photograph – or her real identity – saying she wants to first seek the
protection of the Kaduna State Government from Mr. Suleman and “his team
of magicians”, according to the media.
“In the wake of this current sex scandal between Miss Otobo Stephanie
and Johnson Suleman, 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 to Premium Times that they received a request for protection from Ms. Esther, but
added that the government does not want to be involved in the matter.
On Friday, Otobo said most of the evidence of her affair with Mr.
Suleman got lost after her laptop was stolen on arrival at the Lagos
airport, last year, blaming the preacher for the loss.
Ms. Esther told the portal her own evidence against Mr. Suleman –
“videos of him around me in the church always,” phone calls, text
messages – mysteriously disappeared from her phone immediately after
“But if police can retrieve my text messages and phone calls from MTN
service provider between the month of August 2013 and 2015 May, that
will be enough to prove him guilty of oppression and threat to life.”
