Mohammed Adamu, the inspector-general of police (IGP), has directed the probe of Apostle Johnson Suleman, founder of Omega Fire Ministry, for allegedly sleeping with his female minister.
The investigation comes on the back of a petition by Mike Davids, a former cleric at the church, that Suleman allegedly slept with Faith Edeko, his wife, who currently heads the Abuja branch of Omega Fire Ministries in Utako.
In the petition, written by V.C Ezenagu & Associates, his counsel, Davids also accused Suleman of threatening his life and denying him access to his three children.
According to PUNCH, the IGP’s directive was contained in a letter dated January 5 and addressed to the deputy inspector-general of police, force intelligence bureau in Garki, Abuja.
The letter, with reference number CB:7000/IGP.SEC/ABJ/Vol.515/561, was signed by Iliya Doma, the principal staff officer II to the IGP.
“I attach herewith a copy of a letter dated December 30, 2020, with its attachments received from V.C Ezenagu & Associates on the above-underlined subject. The Inspector-General of Police directs that you treat. Accept the assurances of my esteemed regards,” the letter partly read.
In the petition, Davids said he met Suleman while in school with the pair eventually becoming very close friends.
He said the apostle would later ordain him a pastor in his church on June 9, 2006, adding that he served for over 15 years before he eventually left the church in 2019.
To buttress his point, Davids attached his pastoral certificate as well as license number 125 to the petition.
Davids also shared three videos on his social media pages wherein he bared lurid details of his allegations against Suleman.
According to the petitioner, trouble started when Suleman was planning to set up a gospel television station and had requested the assistance of his wife who was a broadcaster with NTA at the time.
He said it was during one of his wife’s visits to his place that the “clergyman slept with her”, explaining that his marriage has collapsed since then.
“Apostle Suleman has given her a branch of the church in Utako, Abuja to head without permission. I am calling on Pastor David Oyedepo, Pastor Paul Enenche, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, Pastor Margaret Idahosa, CAN, PFN,” he said in of the videos.
“Apostle Suleman has damaged my life. I have not seen my wife and children for two years and Apostle Suleman says if I ever go near them, he will have me taken out. I have a video where he said he will make me disappear. I don’t want to lose my life.”
But reacting in a video, Edeko dismissed the claims by the petitioner, describing such as an attempt to blackmail Suleman.
