Justice Kikelomo Bukola Ayeye while presiding over the case ruled against Apostle Suleman’s application on grounds o f lack of substantial evidence to deny his alleged mistress, Stephanie, her fundamental right to freedom.
Stating that it does not matter if one of the parties involved in the case was a man of God, the judge granted Ms. Otobo bail in the sum of N100,000, with two sureties in like sum who must be gainfully employed.
SaharaReporters however obtained a copy of the filing which indicated that the accused persons may have threatened and blackmailed the man of God.
The cleric in the application for remand stated a four count charge of terrorism, blackmail, extortion and threat against the defendants. One of the charges read: “an act of terrorism, demanding property with menace with intent to steal and attempt to extort money.”
In another of the charges, the police said Wisdom and Stephanie “…with intent to blackmail a man of God, did unlawfully demand the immediate payment of the sum of $1,000,000 (one million US dollars) to you by Apostle Suleiman, … else you will call a conference and accuse him out for committing adultery … and having an illicit relationship with her (Stephanie).”
