Apostle Suleman threatens Halima Abubakar with N1Bn lawsuit
Apostle Suleman the general overseer of Omega Fire Ministries International threatens to sue ailing actress Halima Abubakar for N1Bn.
This is all in the context of the saga surrounding their alleged affair, which Halima Abubakar claimed was the cause of her health problems.
Apostle Suleman, through his lawyer, threatens to sue the actress for defamation if she does not back down in three days.
The letter titled, ‘Defamatory statements concerning Apostle Johnson Suleman; notice to cease and desist’, was dated September 28 and signed by Rodney Adzuanaga, his lawyer.
It reads, “Dear Ms. Halima Abubakar, Our client is an Apostle and Senior Pastor of the Omega Fire and Miracle Ministry International, with branches in all states of Nigeria and several countries of the world. By virtue of his Apostolic calling and reach he has several millions of followers who look up to him and his ministry for spiritual guidance and direction.”
“It is our brief that you caused to be published malicious, defamatory, and demeaning statements about our client on several micro-blog sites, chiefly Gistlover, and your Instagram handle Halima Abubakar, which have wider reach within Nigeria and the world.”
“These statements, made by you, knowing fully well that they are false, untrue, malicious, defamatory, baseless, and a tool of blackmail of our client, impugn the reputation of our client and reduce him in the eyes of responsible and right thinking members of the society.”
