Troubles for Keyamo as Apostles Suleiman demands N1bn as damages

Recently, the online community was awash with video clips and allegations of indecent sexual conduct between the radical Pastor and General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide, Apostle Johnson
Suleman, and a striper, Stephanie Otobo, who was represented by the controversial lawyer, Festus Keyamo.

Now, after Otobo has reportedly retracted her earlier statement incriminating the pastor, following an arrest and detention, Apostle Suleiman has now demanded that Festus Keyamo, should retract all publications, and an apology to be published on major social media networks.

He also demanded N1bn over alleged blackmail
and injuries inflicted on him, including online
video clips, during his alleged amorous
relationship with a Canada-based stripper,
Stephanie Otobo.

Should he fail to comply with the demand, the
cleric threatened to drag Keyamo to the Legal
Practitioners Disciplinary Committee “for
infamous conduct.”

According to reports, Stephanie Otobo had
alleged that she suffered emotional stress from
Suleman, following a sour relationship including a
promise of marriage.

But the cleric in a letter by his counsel, Osa
Director, obtained by journalists on Thursday
evening in Abuja, entitled: “Allegation of
professional misconduct and unethical practices”,
said Keyamo’s action was inconsistent with
Section 1 of the Rules of Professional Conduct
For Legal Practitioners 2007.

He said, “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 him, 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.

“In short, you have threatened and indeed
executed your threat of conjuring, manufacturing
and synthesising bogus and unverifiable exhibits
in the social media and newspapers, all with a
view to poison public opinion against our client
and reduce his esteem and reputation in the eye
of any reasonable man.

Your attitude is also to
ambush a fair trial while litigation is anticipated.
This is contrary to S.33 of the Rules of
Professional Conduct For Legal Practitioners

Director quoted a recent Newspaper report in
which Keyamo threatened to “release more
bullets”, while Otobo under his supervision would
be organising a world press conference and “we
will begin to release bullets.”

He said, “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”. As of press time, Mr. Keyamo was yet to respond to this current legal threat.
