Controversial Nigerian cleric and founder of Omega Fire Ministries International, Apostle Suleman Johnsonn is currently trending on Twitter and many twitter users have been asking “Why?”
This is not the first time the controversial cleric is raising headlines following series of allegations, his recent ordeal with gun men and the back and forth motions of his court cases. But while all happened at it’s time, netizens want to know why the apostle is trending again.
Bonezworld.ng has gathered that Apostle Suleman began to trend on Twitter on Saturday night following queries on his integrity for suing a former Nollywood actress, Halima Abubakar, hence, Halima is also trending at the moment.
As seen by Bonezworld, Daniel Regha, a popular social media critic and Twitter influencer among other netizens, called out the embattled cleric for suing Halima for defamation charges when he is yet to reveal the names of those who sent assassins after him in October, 2022.
Recall that Seven people were killed during the attack and Apostle Suleman after days of silence, said that he knew the people who sent assassins after him but would not reveal their names.
The Apostle has also failed to seek justice for the deceaseds.
Relatedly, erstwhile actress, Halima Abubakar accused the controversial cleric of reneging on his promise to marry her.
She also said he was behind an undisclosed life-threatening ailment that had plagued her for years- a statement the preacher counted as defamatory and then issued a cease and desist notice to the actress.
The cleric accused Ms Abubakar of publishing malicious, defamatory, and demeaning statements about him on several microblog sites, chiefly Gistlover.
However, in a publication by Premium Times Newspaper, the controversy between former Nollywood actress, Halima Abubakar, and Apostle Suleman Johnson has taken a new turn as the preacher has formally taken the matter to court.
Reacting to the new development, social media users especially on Twitter have questioned his integrity stating that he should be called for questioning.

“Apostle Suleman is yet to reveal the names of those who sent assassins after him; Seven people were sadly killed (RIP), but he’s not seeking justice for ’em. Why is he keeping silent about this? The authorities needs to bring him in for questioning, & update the general public.”
Reacting to his comment, other netizens equally raised concerns. @Emy wrote:
“If this guy no dey link to drug make I kolo. This pastor no be better pastor shikena. I dislike portable but sense dey that music Wella . How come na only u be G.O when gun men ambush come kill followers Wella no Ransome.”
Another user, @John_gwong wrote,
“He said he knows them but can’t sue them. But he is busy suing Halima for the sex they had… Na mumu dey follow Nigeria pastors”
“I said this same thing when it happened, because his child was not killed he won’t take any action, he claimed he knew who made the attempts, he should be brought in for questioning, if people can kidnap themselves, people can orchestrate fake attempts on their lives.”
“Very true! How can u say u know those behind the attack that claimed 7 lives and still keep quiet till now. what if he had lost his wife or kids during that incident, shey he go still dey act like say nothing happen? Na wa!. cos they’re ordinary people they no deserve justice 😏.”
@Egwu Samuel also expressed his thoughts saying,
“Well, people won’t want to talk about this because their family members won’t a victim..If those that were involved,I Wonder how much they were paid to keep silent.”
As well as @NudesArena who wrote,
“Apostle Suleman was almost killed, he narrowly escaped. You can’t tell me that such a man isn’t following up on his assassins. You don’t expect him and the Police to come on social media and tell you about an ongoing investigation and who they’re suspecting or tracking.”
Daniel, my son, there are boundaries to what you can shook mouth. This is a man of God. I don talk my own.
