In a shocking twist, Miss Stephanie Otobo, has apologised to founder of Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide (OFM), Apostle Johnson Suleman, after accused of impregnating and breaching a promise to marry her.
In a confession video on the church Facebook page yesterday, she declared she was sponsored by “very strong and powerful politicians and pastors” to defame the popular preacher.
In the viral video, she said:
“They paid me a lot of money,” wiping tears from her eyes.
Suleman’s wife, Lizzy, in turn addressed the congregation, asking them to forgive Otobo, after confession of her sins.
Otobo’s counsel, Festus Keyamo, told Premium Times he could not confirm or deny the video.
“We saw the video online on Saturday morning but we are yet to get any formal statement from Stephanie confirming or debunking the video.
“We are lawyers and we only act on our client’s instructions. So, we don’t have any comment on the matter,” he said.
On what will become of the pending court case, he said:
“No comment, we are waiting to hear from our client first before we know the next line of action.”
The actress who came from Canada said she accepted the proposal of the unnamed powerful politicians and pastors because she was assured it would help her career.
Last year, She accused Suleman of failing to keep a marriage promise made to her.
She filed a petition asking the police to investigate multiple allegations against the preacher.
Last November, the preacher also filed a defamation suit against her at the Lagos State High Court in Ikeja.
The hearing was stalled following the latter’s absence in court.The presiding judge, Adedayo Oyebanji, adjourned the matter until February 7.
