A pastor, Mike Davids, who was formerly with Omega Fire Ministries, has asked the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) to suspend the General Overseer of the church, Apostle Johnson Suleman.
He urged the CAC appoint an interim manager in line with Section 839 of the Companies and Allied Matters Act, 2020.
Davids, who had accused Apostle Suleman of sleeping with his wife in the presence of his young daughter, said the CAC should also probe the church’s finances, Apostle Suleman’s lifestyle and alleged the purchase of a private jet.
The requests are contained in a letter sent to the Registrar-General of the commission, Garba Abubakar, which was received by the CAC on February 12, 2020.
The letter titled reads: ‘Petition for the Immediate Investigation and Removal of Apostle Johnson Suleman, a Trustee of Incorporated Trustee of Omega Fire Ministry it/no: 21739 and for Closure Of the Church and/or Appointment of Interim Managers to Manage the Affairs of the Church Pursuant to Section 839 of the Companies and Allied Matters Act, 2020.
“I have had cause to believe that Apostle Johnson Suleman has continued to use his position as trustee and general overseer of OFM to commence an amorous relationship with my wife which has led to several acts of enticement of my wife and an adulterous relationship between the two of them.
“Beyond having sexual relations with my wife, that in clear misappropriation of the trustees’ funds and church money, Apostle Johnson Suleman opened a supermarket for my wife at Lugbe.
“He has bought a car for my wife and he has rented a residential apartment for my wife and children without my approval, knowledge and consent.
“Worst still, Apostle Johnson Suleman has also unlawfully restrained me from gaining access to the house to see my children.
“All these actions amount to clear violations of statute and the constitution and objectives of the church with respect to how church money ought to be appropriated and applied.
