Mike Davids, a former pastor working with the Omega Fire Ministries has charged the General Overseer of the church, Apostle Johnson Suleman to court for unlawfully interfering in his marriage.
The embattled Davids had in January claimed through a video shared on social that Suleman had an affair with his wife, Pastor Faith Edeko, who heads the Abuja branch of Omega Fire Ministries in Utako and destroyed his marriage.
But Faith and the Apostle denied ever having an affair with Suleman.
She said her husband is weaponising cheap blackmail against the apostle and he is the one who abandoned the marriage and his family.
Weeping in the video, Faith said, “I don’t know what you hope to achieve, I don’t know who paid you but the only thing I will say is haven’t you done enough? Are you not tired of flogging someone’s daughter in pain?”
However, Punch reports that Davids had filed an action in Pet/041/2021 before the court, accusing Apostle Suleman of destroying his home and preventing him from seeing his three children
In the petition for a decree of restitution of conjugal rights, the Davids claimed that he married his wife pursuant to Section 24 of the Marriage Act at St. Andrew’s Cathedral, Ekpoma, on December 6, 2008 by virtue of which only a High Court can annul.
Davids is seeking an order of perpetual injunction restraining Apostle Suleman, the church and their agents from gaining access or relating with his wife and three children
He is also seeking, “an award of punitive and exemplary damages in the sum of N2bn against the defendants for unlawful interference with the claimant’s contract of marriage and the cost of N2m being the cost of prosecuting this action before this honourable court.”
