- An extramarital affair scandal has rocked the Omega Fire Ministries International
- The founder and general overseer of the church, Apostle Johnson Suleman, has been named in the scandal
- The Nigeria police force has already taken steps to unravel the truth of the matter
An emerging report claims that the general overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries International, Apostle Johnson Suleman, is being probed by the police for allegedly having an extramarital affair with the wife of a pastor.
According to The Punch newspaper, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, ordered the probe on Suleman following the accusation.
The publication stated that the religious leader was accused of having a romantic affair with a female pastor, Faith Edeko, who heads the Abuja branch of Omega Fire Ministries in Utako.
The husband of the woman, Pastor Mike Davids, is reported to have left the church over the incident.
Davids in a petition to the IGP through his lawyer accused Suleman of dating his wife and destroying his marriage.
He said his wife confessed to him that the religious leader had extramarital affair with her when she went to help him to set up a gospel television station.
''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.''
In response to the petition, the IGP in a letter dated January 5, 2021, asked the Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Force Intelligence Bureau, Garki, to investigate the matter.
The letter from the police boss with reference number CB:7000/IGP.SEC/ABJ/Vol.515/561, was 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''
The letter read 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.”
However, his wife, Pastor Faith Edeko, has denied the allegations made by her husband. She accused him of abandoning their marriage and leaving home.
Similarly, a resident pastor of Omega Fire Ministry, Joseph Iyare, dismissed the accusation by Pastor Davids.
He described Davids as a man frustrated by his own evil deeds.
Meanwhile, Deborah Okezie, the mother of the 11-year-old kid who was allegedly abused at Deeper Life School, has criticised Apostle Johnson Suleman.
The woman's comment came after the clergyman said she was trying to blackmail the church.
Deborah strictly warned Apostle Suleman to pick his words carefully when next he talks about her.
