The much-publicized sex scandal involving Apostle Johnson Suleman and Canada-based Nigerian singer cum stripper, Stephanie Otobo is gathering new momentum as she has sued the man of God for $5 million.

Otobo who filed the lawsuit in her base in Ontario, Canada, according to Sahara Reporters, is for damages resulting from a breach of trust, breach of fiduciary relations, breach of contract, negligence, defamation, poisoning, intentional and negligent infliction of emotional stress and forcible confinement.

Other prayers filed by Otobo include multiple instances of battery, false imprisonment, fraud, assaults, sexual assaults, sexual harassments, harassments and malicious prosecution.

A letter dated April 19, 2017, with case file number CV-17-573595 signed by Registrar of the Ontario Superior Court and addressed to Apostle Suleman’s Ontario residence, posited that Otobo has filed a lawsuit against the General Overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide.

The lawsuit is also seeking an order restraining Apostle Suleman from contacting any communication, directly or indirectly, with Otobo while in Canada, and restraining the pastor from being at a distance of at least 500 meters from her.

The court summons revealed facts that include that Apostle Suleman had first been introduced to Otobo around June of 2015 in Canada as one in need of spiritual guidance, averring that he had afterward groomed and mentored Otobo under his care.

It also revealed Otobo’s status at the time as a refugee in Apostle Suleman’s care, after which she had been invited by Suleman to Italy and other European countries in continuation of the grooming, whereupon an amorous relationship had developed between both parties, resulting from psychological programming sessions during the grooming periods.

The letter went further to reveal that Apostle Suleman had invited Otobo to his church in Nigeria in the summer of 2015, whereupon they had a sexual relationship that resulted in a pregnancy by August 2015.

 

It also noted that after she became pregnant, Apostle Suleman thereafter met with the family of Otobo who includes the mother, sister, and other relations, bearing gifts, and informing the family of his undertaking to marry her.

But soon after in late August 2015, Otobo arrived in Nigeria on the invitation of Apostle Suleman, making her abandon her career with the intention of coming to be with her husband-to-be.

She was allegedly lodged at the Definite Destiny Hotel in Lagos where things took a dramatic turn when Otobo said she was given a concoction which Apostle Suleman called 'spiritual drink' but which was aimed at terminating her pregnancy.

Otobo said shortly after drinking the concoction, she suffered bleeding and managed to regain consciousness after she was given pain-killing pills by Apostle Suleman.

She averred that she subsequently returned to Canada to receive further treatment, even as she was then stalked by followers of Apostle Suleman who were also his church’s congregants in Canada.

She said that she eventually returned to Nigeria early this year to seek redress for her ordeal, but was arrested on March 17, 2017, in company of a male friend in Lagos and then arraigned on charges of  terrorism and blackmail, and detained in different centers by the Nigerian police before being granted bail, even as the matter remains pending in court.
