Lizy Suleman, wife of the senior pastor of Omega Fire Ministry, Johnson Suleman, has addressed the alleged sex scandal involving her husband and a lady named Stephanie Otobo.
Reacting to the ongoing drama, Mrs. Suleman described the purported photos of her husband, published online, as fake.
In a video, Mrs. Suleman also said that her husband’s alleged persecution is the handiwork of the powers that be in the political circles.
She said, “Since the day my husband said they should stop the killing of Christians, those who are not happy with that statement are doing everything possible to pull down the lord’s anointed.”
She said, “I don’t like media appearance but for the purpose of clarity, I have to speak. I have known my husband for the past 19 years and if you are living with a man who is promiscuous or adulterous, you will know, especially if you are an intelligent woman.
“I have to appear like this to address this because it is a woman-to-woman talk.
“I have heard all kinds of rubbish and the nonsense this lady has been talking about that has gone viral on the Internet. My marriage is the target and it is so unfortunate. For the 19 years that I am married to my husband, even while we were courting, we had never had any issue over any woman.
“For all the pictures that have been released, you can release more but it will never replace the picture of my husband in my heart.
“As you can, those pictures were photo-shopped. By the grace of God, I am a trained journalist, a mass communicator.
“Nigerians are so gullible because they believe everything.”
Meanwhile, the man at the center of the storm, Mr. Suleman, has also reacted to the ongoing scandal in a series of tweets on Monday night.
He wrote, “(You) hear stories and (you) laugh. Very poor job.We know where certain stories come from, every voice has an invoice. The church is standing tall.”
“Just saw the picture… they could have used a more presentable lady… Nigeria(n) politicians and comedy”.
In a related development, counsel to Ms. Otobo has denied a certain press release credited to their client wherein she debunked all the claims she purportedly made against Apostle Suleman.
