The General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries, OFM, Apostle Johnson Suleman has disclosed the reason he was attacked by some gunmen some days back.
Naija News recalls that the clergyman was attacked in Auchi area of Edo State. About seven people, including three police officers lost their lives during the attack. Suleman had claimed that he knew those responsible for the ambush but would not disclose them. Speaking once again on the incident, the clergyman told his congregation that some of his colleagues in the ministry who were uncomfortable with his condemnations of the killings in Nigeria offered him a bag of money but he refused. He stated that the ministers vowed to come after him for refusing their offer. Suleman said: “Some ministers called me to Abuja after I spoke against the killings on a national scale, and they sat me down, threw a bag of money, and they said to me, take this and shut up. “They threw out an AK-47, they threw out a newspaper, and they said take the money or you go by these two. “I told them that I did not understand what they meant. They said if I did not do that, they would make sure that in this country, I don’t hold the microphone again. “I said to them, I never knew what I said was actually a big deal; now I want to start talking. I said if you wanted to come for me, please you were very free to bother yourselves, because I would keep talking, and I kept on speaking.”
