Apostle Johnson Suleiman has responded with a lawsuit against his former Pastor, David Mike, who accused him of interfering in his marriage.
The highly placed cleric filed a law suit against Pastor David for “conspiracy to blackmail and defamation of character.” Apostle Johnson filed the lawsuit through his legal team led by Osa Director, Esq, for Osa Director And Co.
In a written statement to Newsmen, the Senior Pastor of Omega Fire Ministries through his legal team also revealed that the Inspector-General of Police, IGP, Mohammed Adamu, had filed a lawsuit with the Federal High Court in Abuja demanding the arrest of Pastor David on the grounds of alleged blackmail and defamation of character.
Part of the released statement reveals that Pastor David had been expelled from the ministry due to the cleric’s acts and conduct contradicting the Christian faith and has since been trying to blackmail Apostle Johnson Suleman.
Read the statement below;
“It has come to our knowledge that one Mike David has purportedly filed a lawsuit against our Client, Apostle Johnson Suleman, and seeking two billion nairas as damages for alleged interference in his marriage, which has since been dissolved a few years ago.
“We are yet to be served with any court process. 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.
“For the record, Mike David was a pastor in our client’s church but expelled since 2018 for acts inimical to the body of Christ. He has, for the past six years, been attempting to blackmail Apostle Suleman.
“He has continuously threatened and boasted that he has materials in his possession to embarrass Apostle Suleman with, and his recent video allegations are one of such materials and tools of blackmail. In short, he has been boasting that he will bring down Apostle Suleman and Omega Fire Ministries down, of which our client has audio and video evidence to expose his threats and blackmail.
“The matter was reported to the Nigerian Police Force. Consequently, the Inspector General of Police has approached the Federal High Court in Abuja in suit No: FHC/ABJ/CS/115/2021 seeking the arrest and detention of the said Mike David.
“Apostle Suleman is instituting a lawsuit against Mike David at the Lagos State High Court in Ikeja seeking Five Billion Naira damages for conspiracy to blackmail and defamation of character. As believers in the rule of law and judiciary, we hope justice will be served and clearly so at the end of the day,” the statement concludes.
