PORT HAR-COURT— Niger Delta Bishops and Ministers Forum, a.k.a, United Bishops and Eminent Cleric Initiative of Nigeria, Inc., has called on Miss Stephanie Otobo to render unreserved apology to one of its colleagues, Apostle Johnson Suleman, or be ready to face the wrath of God.
Otobo, a US-based Nigerian musician, had accused Suleman of having extra-marital affairs with her and others, alleging that the cleric pays his female partners N400,000 at every meeting.
Speaking in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, yesterday, the President of the body, His Eminence, Dr. Julius Ediwe, condemned the allegation in its entirety, describing same as blasphemy from the pit of hell.
Ediwe said that Otobo was being sponsored by politicians in the state and the attack was coming because Suleman spoke the truth and stood by it.
He said: “We are seeing this whole thing as being politically motivated. A politician is behind this insult on a man of God. We warn him to stay clear.”
Some politicians are after him “What the young lady is saying about a man of God is falsehood. We will not be quite to watch a young lady doing the biddings of the devil to spoil the name of a respected man of God.
“Suleiman is a man that has stood his ground for what he believes in. She is speaking blasphemy against the man of God and it is a very big error on her. These things are happening because Suleiman stood to say the truth and that is why they are after his integrity and dignity.
“We warn all Nigerians especially politicians to leave Suleiman alone to do the work that God has given him in the nation and in Africa. We love the work he is doing, he has made men of God and Bishops proud. They should stop giving him unnecessary distraction.
“Men of God should stand and speak against this kind of act against a man of God. It is an abomination against the bible we are carrying. She should immediately withdraw her statements and repent.”
