Mike Davids, who earlier accused Apostle Johnson Suleman of sleeping with his wife, has recanted his claim and tendered an apology to the clergyman.
Davids said God instructed him to apologise to Suleman, describing him as “my father in the Lord.”
He also apologised to Suleman’s church, the Omega Fire Ministries and Apostle Suleman’s wife.
Davids had reported the alleged adultery and threat to life to the police. He claimed Suleiman threatened to make him “disappear”, after he accused him of having amorous affair with his wife.
Davids also claimed the clergyman deliberately separated him from his wife and, ultimately, caused their estrangement.
However, Suleiman who pastors a Pentecostal church, the Omega Fire Ministries denied the allegations.
In a suit he filed before a Lagos High Court demanding N5billion damages, Suleiman said Davids is scorned over his expulsion from the church in 2018 for “acts inimical to the body of Christ”. The pastor said Davids “has since been attempting to blackmail Apostle Suleman.”
“He constantly threatened and boasted that he has materials in his possession to embarrass Apostle Suleman with and his recent video allegations is one of such materials and tools of blackmail.
“In short, he has been boasting that he will bring down Apostle Suleman and Omega Fire Ministries down, of which our client has audio and video evidence to expose his threats and blackmail.
“The matter was reported to the Nigerian Police Force. Consequently, the Inspector General of Police has approached the Federal High Court in Abuja in suit No: FHC/ABJ/CS/115/2021 seeking the arrest and detention of the said Mike David,” said Osa Director, counsel to Suleman.
