Apostle Suleman writes Keyamo, wants N1bn in one week or else...

Founder of Omega Power Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleiman, has written Festus Keyamo, counsel to Miss Stephanie Otobo, who is accusing him of promising to marry her, as soon as he divorced his wife, but instead dumped her in Canada.

A letter by the Auchi-based pastor signed by his lawyers is demanding the sum of N1billion for damages after allegedly resorting to blackmail and intimidation of “our client through the media-both traditional and social media”.

The letter tagged “ALLEGATION OF PROFESSIONAL MISCONDUCT AND UNETHICAL PRACTICES” signed by Osa Director Esq also threatened to drag Keyamo before the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee for infamous conduct.

The preacher handed Keyamo a seven-day ultimatum to meet the demands spelt out in the letter.

Read full text of the letter below;

“Sequel to our letter to you dated 6th March, 2017 we have observed with shock and dismay your deliberate and relentless efforts to malign and convict our client through media trial.

“By your relentless media campaign, you are conducting yourself in a manner inconsistent with S.1 of the Rules of Professional Conduct For Legal Practitioners 2007. Instead of gathering your facts and evidence before a court of competent jurisdiction for adjudication you have cleverly resorted to blackmail and intimidation of our client through the media-both traditional and social media.

“In short, you have threatened and indeed executed your threat of conjuring, manufacturing and synthesizing bogus and unverifiable exhibits in the social media and newspapers, all with a view to poison public opinion against our client and reduce his esteem and reputation in the eye of any reasonable man. Your attitude is also to ambush a fair trial while litigation is anticipated. This is contrary to S.33 of the Rules of Professional Conduct For Legal Practitioners 2007.

“In the Punch newspapers of Tuesday, March 7, 2017 Vol. 41 No 21,388 page 10 you were quoted in an interview threatening to “release more bullets.” You said your client under your supervision will be organizing a world press conference and “we will begin to release bullets.”

“Furthermore, you grossly and recklessly maligned our client, saying, “these men of God are not what they claim to be, we have a duty to protect the public. Many of them are fake and fraudsters. You will see the video very soon in the next few minutes.” True to your threat of trial publicity stunts, the video clips have flooded the social media networks.

“We believe your conduct is inconsistent with the virtues and rules of conduct of the legal profession. It smacks of indiscipline and disdain for the judicial process. Therefore, we demand a retraction of all your press statements and an apology to be published in the major social media networks and Punch newspapers.

“Also, we demand a compensation of One Billion Naira for all the injuries inflicted on our client. We expect you to meet our demands within seven days from the date above written.

“TAKE NOTICE that we shall drag you before the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee for infamous conduct, if you fail to so do.”

Meanwhile, after her arrest on March 3 at a United Bank of Africa branch in Lagos on the orders of Apostle Suleman, Miss Otobo, an Ontario, Canada based musician, was released yesterday from police custody alongside Wisdom Godstime, a Canadian resident, with whom she was detained.

Miss Otobo was supposed to be released a day earlier but Justice Kikelomo Bukola Ayeye, the chief magistrate of the Lagos State Magistrate Court who was supposed to sign off her bail, wasn’t on sit as she was out attending the swearing-in ceremony of some new judges by the Lagos State Government.
