April 15, 2017 – Stephanie Otobo: I’m Writing A Book On My Sex Rumps With Apostle John Suleiman, God Is Using Me To Expose His Secrets
In an exclusive interview with Saturday Sun, Stephanie Otobo called on Apostle Suleman to tender public apology to her, as well as, to his congregation before she could back down from the battle God is using her to wage against the cleric to expose his true nature.
When most people doubted your claim on Apostle Suleman, you came up with evidence that people thought was not available, why were you holding this back since; why did it take you so long to release the bank statement, and BB chat?
My laptop was stolen when I came to Nigeria last year, and it was when I returned to Canada and bought a new one that I was able to recover most of the information, and I went to my BB conversation to crosscheck the things that he was saying and found them funny.
We also learnt that you have more evidence like text messages because some of Apostle’s supporters are saying that BB chats could also be forged. Is that correct?
What do you want now, do you want peace; do you want out of court settlement?
No matter what he is offering, I want a public apology. He has to apologise for the embarrassment and the denials. He can’t be too big to apologise to the congregation that he has thrown into shame. He arranged for the law enforcement agents to pick me up and froze my account.
Do you not fear for your life in the face of all these?
I should ask you guys who are asking me for more evidence, are you not threats to my life? Those asking for evidence, can they come up and speak to that man? I won’t even appreciate anybody asking for more evidence. I pray and believe in God, and I know the truth and the truth is the word of God and Christ is the way, and I pray that the truth comes out. I know they say we are all in the market here on earth and heaven is home but the truth is that, we are all in the farm, what we sow, we will all reap. That’s why we should make sure we are good today to inherit goodness tomorrow.
I had much on Instagram, which I deleted. Recently, I started writing a book on what happened, and few days ago, I woke up in the night and continued with the book. There were so many evidence, which I deleted as I didn’t know that this was going to happen at all.
Since then, he has been trying to fight me, he has been trying to kill me; he has tried spiritually, he couldn’t get me, and now he wants to use physical power, but my God is stronger and greater than him.
Was it true that you asked your mum to go and beg him, as shown in a video with your mum and sister coming to his church to beg him; are you the one behind that or are you angry with your mum for doing that?
I would not have done that. It was a betrayal to me, but I forgive my mum because anybody in her position will do the same and it is because of how big the man is, that is why my mum is scared. This man lives in a community where people are scared of him; my mum is scared of him. I know what I am saying is true…
Especially when you know that something went on between the two of you?
Yeah. A man of God would have given the issue to his lawyer and say that he didn’t know the girl. And you call yourself an Apostle, how are you teaching people the way of God? He wanted to silence me; that is what exactly he wanted to do. I wouldn’t appreciate people asking me for more evidence.
As I have presented my own bank statement, he should bring his own. He and I were in Europe together, he should show his passport that was June 2015, in Italy.
Were you actually in love with him, and if you were, do still have any feeling for him given what has happened?
He lied to me, telling me that he and his wife were not going to be together anymore. That was why I followed him with the marriage proposal. So, for him to lie… and then gave me something to drink, I don’t believe he’s a man of God.
I don’t have anything to say to him than for him to go ask God for forgiveness because God would still forgive him.
With what has happened, he scammed you, that is marriage scam?
Yes, he promised me marriage and made me to lose my house; he promised car, everything. He told me he had divorced his wife, and the pictures would be out soon. He said I should not be worried and because of his personality that he couldn’t just speak out on the divorce issue.
During this controversy, pictures with his wife were released to the public, showing public display of affection, how do you feel?
I thank God for his wife. That is what a home is supposed to be, and I wish I could say sorry to her, that I didn’t know her husband was lying. I’m happy for her and her marriage and that is what I pray for everyone that is married.
I’m just happy, this is a wake up call for him. All he has to do before everything would end is that he owns up to the truth and apologise, because he can’t run away from it. I’m very happy for them. I’m sure his wife will be singing in her heart that she brought him back home.
This is not a big deal, it might be a wake up call, but the way he is handling it, arresting me, sending me to jail and trying to silence me before anybody would know, is not the right thing to do. You can’t treat people like that. He has made himself so much of a god that nobody who wants to turn away and give him the benefit of doubt; they just want to believe him. You can’t put yourself like that because it is not acceptable to God.
If he doesn’t peacefully change, God will disgrace him, because this is not me fighting him, it is God using me to expose him. He should own up to the truth and apologise.
What do want Nigerians to do for you now?
I want to apologise for the part that I played in all of this. This whole thing just happened suddenly and many people who had faith in this man were all disappointed. I’m sorry but this is the truth. I’m sorry this happened, and I’m sorry for the part I played in this.
Some men of God who erred came out openly to admit their guilt and apologised…
Yes, but not wanting to kill. If he has not done it before, he would be scared to do all these things. He’s trying to talk to government here in order cause me some immigration problems in Canada.
I’m suing him in Canada, but I don’t know if that is coming up now. My lawyer will bring that up.
Concerning the prayers and night vigil you said you have been holding, what are you asking God to do?
I’m telling God to let the truth come out and for protection as well. The word of God says no weapon formed against me shall prosper; and any tongue that rises against me shall be condemned. God’s word is power and I have that in mind, that God is protecting me.
Who is going to give Suleman the opportunity to wake up and harm me? Is it not God, and now that he is lying, he doesn’t have that opportunity to hurt me because he has to own up to the truth first before he can do any other thing. He can’t hurt me.
I’m sure you will be glad to have a man who will accept you the way you are?
For that one, I’m very okay. I’m minding my music because I’m releasing it someday soon.
Will this experience form the focus of the album you want to release?
Of course, the experience is part of it. It is a gospel song entitled, I depend on you. By God’s grace, I have been so busy and everything will settle when the truth comes out.
Has there been any communication between the two of you either directly or indirectly?
You are no longer having any feeling, especially old memory of him?
After he has arrested me and I went through hell. I don’t think I have any feeling for him. When you are in prison, you see a lot of things and make a lot of decisions.
I was asking God to have mercy upon me and I was not thinking about him. So, God showed me mercy and I have to move on with my life.
