Popular cleric Apostle Johnson Suleman has responded in response to criticism he received on Twitter for praying for Ike Ekweremadu’s family.
The former deputy senate president and his wife, Beatrice, were reportedly detained in London on Thursday, June 24, for allegedly planning to harvest the organs of a juvenile.
Their daughter Sonia, who suffers from kidney disease, needs the child’s kidney to survive.
Ike Ekweremadu and his family will be protected by God during the trials, Apostle Suleman prayed on Twitter in response to the contentious news.
Read his tweet below,
“Heard about the travails of the former deputy senate president, may God see him through.. may God protect their child and spare her life..
Thank GOD for preserving the life of that minor who was to be used..
May God help them to do the right thing..
This too shall pass!”
But several online users responded to his remark by criticizing him for allegedly praying for a fictitious organ donor.
Reacting to his attackers, Apostle Suleman wrote,
“I just made a prayer for all those involved in the issue of the former deputy senate president and I see reactions..
since you have become the law court,take your hate somewhere else and don’t join those I have blocked..even a confirmed thief on the cross, Jesus prayed for him.”
