Controversial pastor, Apostle Johnson Suleman is enmeshed in an adultery scandal following allegation by a Canada based Nigerian, Miss Stephanie Otobo, that he promised her marriage, impregnated her but later dumped her.
Miss Otobo, an artist, leveled this allegation through her lawyer, Festus Keyamo, in a letter dated March 4, and addressed to the pastor from Keyamo’s chamber.
In the letter made available to newsmen, Otobo claimed she and Apostle Suleman started dating sometimes in June 2015 in Canada after the pastor told her he had formally divorced his wife, who bore him five children.
She alleged the reason the controversial pastor, who was recently interrogated by the DSS for making inciting comment gave for divorcing his wife was that he wanted more son.
The letter read in part, “Our client later got pregnant for you and at that time you formally proposed marriage to her which she accepted. “In furtherance to the said marriage proposal, you went to our client’s family with drinks and gifts for an introduction.
“At the introduction, in which our client’s mother, sister, uncle, cousins and other family members were in attendance, you informed them of your intention to marry our client as your wife.
“You also made our client to forfeit her house, cars, friends and other things in Canada as you promised to get a house for her in Nigeria and make her comfortable.
“Despite the foregoing, you finally called it quit with our client and has resorted to threatening her life through different persons and agencies.”
In the letter, Miss Otobo said she was recently arrested inside a banking hall by the police on March 3, at the “behest of Apostle Suleman on a trumped up allegation of fraud and related offences.”
The pastor was given a week to pay N500m to her in the letter, failure which a legal action would be instituted against him.
Keyamo also petitioned the Inspector-General of Police (IG), Ibrahim Idris, seeking the immediate release of his client.
