Apostle Suleman: Stephanie Otobo’s lawyer, Keyamo withdraws from case

A senior lawyer, Festus Keyamo, SAN, has withdrawn as the lawyer to
the alleged mistress to the founder of Omega Fire Ministry, Apostle
Johnson Suleman, Stephanie Otobo.

Keyamo has sought to withdraw as counsel in the sex case between Otobo
and Apostle Suleman.

Miss Otobo had alleged that Apostle Johnson Suleman was her secret
lover who promised her marriage and later breached the promise.

The saga which broke in March last year saw the man of God firing back
and suing Otobo and an online medium, one billion Naira each, at the
Ikeja High Court in Lagos, Nigeria.

She had, after almost a year of accusations and counter accusations,
shocked Nigerian on Saturday, January 27th, when she went to Apostle
Suleman's church in Auchi during the monthly Fire Night programme (an
all night vigil programme) to confess before the mammoth crowd that
she was used by "some powerful politicians and men of God" to destroy
the character and reputation of Apostle Suleman.

Reacting to her confession in the church, Festus Keyamo's Chambers had
said, "We saw the video online on Saturday morning but we are yet to
get any formal statement from Stephanie confirming or debunking the
video.

"We are lawyers and we only act on our client's instructions. So, we
don't have any comment on the matter.

"No comment, we are waiting to hear from our client first before we
know the next line of action,"

But Vanguard has now quoted one of Kiyamo's senior lawyers, Festus
Afeiyadion, as saying, based on the videos that, "Stephanie Otobo, has
released without informing (Festus Keyamo Chambers), (we)hands-off the
case."
