Faith Edeko, the wife of Pastor Mike Davids has reacted to the allegations that she had an extramarital affair with Apostle Johnson Suleman, the general overseer of Omega Fire Ministries International.
In a report by Sahara Reporters, Faith debunked the allegations made by her husband, describing it as an attempt to blackmail the man of God.
Edeko, who heads a branch of the church in Abuja, said it was her husband who walked out of their marriage, adding that he has demanded a refund of her bride price from her family.
The mother of three, speaking further, revealed that she suffered so much abuse while she was married to him and even contemplated taking her own life.
The pastor noted that she had bought sniper and written her note, but didn't go through with it as her son intervened.
Faith questioned what her ex-husband stood to gain for making such an allegation. She said:
“I don’t know what you hope to achieve, I don’t know who paid you but the only thing I will say is haven’t you done enough?"
Vanguard newspaper which also carried the report stated that Faith denied sleeping with Apostle Suleman whom she said was like a biological father to her.
While denying the accusations, Faith said she never had an affair nor would she ever contemplate sleeping with the cleric as he raised her like his own daughter.
In an interview with the publication on Monday, January 25, the pastor said the allegations made by her ex-husband was cheap blackmail in an attempt to tarnish Apostle Suleman's image.
She also revealed that the claim she denied Davids access to their children was not true.
