The founder of Omega Fire Ministries International, Apostle Johnson Suleman, has dared Nollywood actress, Halima Abubakar to prove her allegations against him in court.
Through his lawyer, Dr. Abdul Mahmud, Suleman insists that Abubakar should substantiate her allegations during the trial of a N1Bn defamation suit filed against her last year.
In a statement by his lawyer on Friday, said his client was “unjustly attacked, maligned, and defamed” by the actress to blackmail him for monetary gain.
The lawyer assured the clergyman that he would secure justice in court over her series of defamatory statements.
The court trial has been rescheduled to June 6th and 7th, 2023, after Halima Abubakar and her counsel failed to appear in court.
Apostle Suleman sues Halima Abubakar for N1billion
Kemi Filani news reported late last year, that Apostle Suleman filed a lawsuit against Halima Abubakar for defamation of his character.
The suit titled “DEFAMATORY STATEMENTS CONCERNING APOSTLE JOHNSON SULEMAN: NOTICE TO CEASE AND DESIST” was specifically addressed to Halima Abubakar over her outburst on social media regarding her past affairs with the man of God.
The suit accused Halima Abubakar of publishing damaging, malicious, and defamatory statements about Apostle Suleman against his conduct. The ailing actress was also asked to make a retracting statement in some selected National Newspapers.
Halima Abubakar, who was unbothered by the suit and threat, challenged him.
The actress didn’t chicken out as she promised to see him in court.
“JS Sure see you at the court”, she wrote.
Halima Abubakar opens up on their affair with evidence
Unafraid of the suit, Halima had opened up on her affair with clergyman in an interview.
Halima revealed that Apostle Suleman first reached out to her on the phone to be his friend. They got talking for four months and he sent her 500,000 to show he was serious in his relationship with her.
The actress, who was bedridden, insisted that she never knew Suleman was married as he told her that he was separated. Halima shockingly revealed that she pleaded with him countless times to reconcile with his wife, but he remained adamant.
Halima claimed that Apostle Suleman proposed to her seven times but she rejected his proposal. Unbothered by the rejection, he involved the actress’s parents in their affair and did an introduction with her.
Speaking on their sexual life, Halima revealed that she discovered that every time they had sex, she would always bleed but since she wasn’t spiritual, she didn’t read meaning to it.
To prove herself, Halima shared old photos she took of the clergyman while in a hotel on Valentine’s Day. She berated media personality, Daddy Freeze for pitching tent with Suleman, who he is friends with.
Halima added that she had a tattoo of his name on her hand when their relationship was good and when she discovered he was married, he had calmed her down.
