The Senior Pastor of Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide, Apostle Johnson Suleman, has been dragged to court in a 2bn lawsuit by a former pastor of his church.
The pastor is suing Suleman over ‘unlawful interference’ in his marriage
Pastor Mike Davids, a former cleric at the church, had previously petitioned that Suleman allegedly slept with Faith Edeko, his wife, who currently heads the Abuja branch of Omega Fire Ministries in Utako.
In the petition he sent to the IG , Davids said he met Apostle Suleman in 2003 while he was in school . He said they became very close and he was eventually ordained a pastor of Omega Fire Ministries on June 9, 2006 by Apostle Suleman and served the church for over 15 years before his exit in 2019 . He attached his pastoral certificate with licence 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.
He has now sued the General Overseer and the church for N2bn, for unlawfully interfering in his marriage.
He yesterday filed an action in Pet/041/2021 before the court, accusing Apostle Suleman of destroying his home and preventing him from seeing his three children.
In the petition for decree of restitution of conjugal rights, the petitioner stated that he married his wife pursuant to Section 24 of the Marriage Act at St. Andrew’s Cathedral, Ekpoma, on December 6, 2008 by virtue of which only a High Court can annul.
