Adultery: Apostle Suleman replies former pastor with N5bn suit
President of Omega Fire Ministries International Apostle Johnson Suleman has filed a N5 billion suit against Pastor Mike Davids who accused him of interfering in his marriage.
The cleric, through his legal team led by Osa Director, filed the suit at the Lagos State High Court, Ikeja against Davids for “conspiracy to blackmail and defamation of character.”
The legal team said in a statement on Friday that the Inspector-General of Police Mohammed Adamu had in a suit FHC/ABJ/CS/115/2021 also approached the Federal High Court in Abuja, seeking to arrest Davids over petition of alleged blackmail, defamation and threat to Suleman.
David was, according to the statement, expelled from the ministry since 2018 for “acts inimical to the body of Christ and has for the past six years been attempting to blackmail Apostle Suleman”.
Suleman’s suit follows another instituted by Davids who is seeking N2 billion in damages for the preacher’s alleged interference in his marriage.
“It has come to our knowledge that one Mike David has purportedly filed a law suit against our client, Apostle Johnson Suleman and seeking two billion naira as damages for allege interference in his marriage which has since been dissolved a few years ago. We are yet to be served with any court process,” Suleman’s lawyers said in the statement.
“However, our client has refrained from joining issues with the said Mike David as his utterances are mere hallucinations of a man on the fringes of lunacy and desperation to survive.”
The statement further reads: “As believers in the rule of law and judiciary, we hope justice will be served and clearly so at the end of the day.”
