Stephanie Otobo, the lady who recently avowed to have been paid heavily to blackmail the General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleman has said she was not lured, kidnapped, forced or paid to confess.
She stated this on Tuesday in a video debunking an online medium’s report that she was phoned by Suleiman’s “agents” in Canada, United States and Nigeria, urging her to return to Nigeria and say she was recruited against him. She had last week in a video apologised to Suleman for accusing him of impregnating and breaching a marriage promise.
The woman stated that she was sponsored by “very strong and powerful politicians and pastors” to defame the preacher.
But on Tuesday morning, a pre-recorded video recorded in 2017, was published by Sahara Reporters, which showed Otobo foretelling her confession. In that video, she thanked her supporters before accusing the cleric of pressuring her family and others to lie that the government was behind the scandal.
In another video that emerged on Tuesday night and seen by HEADLINE, Otobo debunked the online medium’s report. According to her, the video was recorded by her sponsors to gag her in future.
“I was not lured, kidnapped, forced or paid to confess. I confessed for my own peace of mind and my wellbeing as a human being.
“How much can the Apostle pay me that will match what I was paid? I am still being offered more by my sponsors,” she said.
That video was made in June, 2017 and it was made by my manipulators so that they would have something against me incase I ever told the truth.”
Otobo who did not name her alleged sponsors in the new video promised to do so in court. She and the online medium earned a litigation to the tune of N1billion slammed on them by the Cleric.
“For those of you asking me to mention names, sure, I will mention names in court because they have been sending emails and texts offering me a lot of money but I cannot be manipulated anymore.
“I was made to tell too many lies, I was chocking. The burden of guilt was too much for me to carry. If I did not correct this grave sin, I would never have obtained the forgiveness of the body of Christ and even in the life hereafter”, she said.
