Alleged Canadian stripper Miss Stephanie Otobo who claims to have had an amorous affair with the Auchi-based founder of Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleman, is still in detention despite the perfection of her bail conditions.
Reports say 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 today as she was out attending the swearing-in ceremony of some new judges by the Lagos State Government.
Justice Ayeye, turned down the request by Apostle Suleman to remand Miss Otobo ruling that there is no substantial evidence to deny Miss Otobo her fundamental right to freedom, and hence granted her bail on liberal terms.
Ayeye granted Miss Otobo bail on conditions that the accused person deposits a sum of N100, 000 with two sureties in like sum who must be gainfully employed.
Miss Otobo’s attorneys, Festus Keyamo Chambers, in a petition earlier sent to the Inspector-General of Police alleged that Apostle Suleman promised to marry her, as soon as he divorced his wife, but instead dumped her to her own fate in Canada.
Miss Otobo who is now claiming N500 million in damages for breach of trust after Apostle Suleman failed to marry her, also claimed that when she got pregnant and informed the Pastor, he got angry and wanted her to abort the baby as he alleged it will tarnish his image.
