Due to the numerous buzz created by the Stephanie Otobo’s sex scandal against Apostle Johnson Suleiman, the General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide has demanded an apology from Festus Keyamo, the legal practitioner behind the case.
Apostle Johnson Suleiman has asked Barrister Festus Keyamo to retract all publications about the sex scandal, send an apology to be published on major social media networks and also compensate him with N1bn.
The charge is to make up for the alleged blackmail and injuries inflicted on him, including online video clips that were released to prove the alleged amorous relationship with Canada-based stripper, Stephanie Otobo.
Suleiman threatened that if Festus Keyamo fails to comply with the demand he would be summoned by the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee “for infamous conduct.”
As reported by The Punch, Stephanie Otobo had alleged that she suffered emotional stress from Suleman, following a sour relationship where he promised her marriage.
In a letter by Suleiman’s counsel, Osa Director, obtained by journalists on Thursday evening in Abuja “Allegation of professional misconduct and unethical practices”, it states that Keyamo’s action was inconsistent with Section 1 of the Rules of Professional Conduct For Legal Practitioners 2007.
The letter read:
“Sequel to our letter to you dated March 6, 2017, we have observed with shock and dismay your deliberate and relentless efforts to malign and convict our client through media trial.
“By your relentless media campaign, you are conducting yourself in a manner inconsistent with Section 1 of the Rules of Professional Conduct For Legal Practitioners 2007.”
According to Suleiman’s counsel, instead of gathering facts and evidence before a court of competent jurisdiction for adjudication, Keyamo resorted to alleged blackmail and intimidation through the media, both traditional and social media.
Mr, Osa quoted a recent Newspaper report in which Keyamo threatened to release more bullets, promising that Stephanie Otobo, under his supervision, would be organizing a world press conference to that effect.
“Furthermore, you grossly and recklessly maligned our client, saying, “these men of God are not what they claim to be, we have a duty to protect the public. Many of them are fake and fraudsters.
“You will see the video very soon in the next few minutes. True to your threat of trial publicity stunts, the video clips have flooded the social media networks.
“We believe your conduct is inconsistent with the virtues and rules of conduct of the legal profession. It smacks of indiscipline and disdain for the judicial process.
“Therefore, we demand a retraction of all your press statements and an apology to be published on the major social media networks.”
“Also, we demand a compensation of N1bn for all the injuries inflicted on our client. We expect you to meet our demands within seven days from the date above written.
“Take notice that we shall drag you before the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee for the infamous conduct if you fail to so do.”
