Hours after Apostle Suleman Johnson filed a N1 billion libel suit against Nollywood actress Halima Abubakar, the latter exposed her alleged affair with the preacher.
Since July 2022, Abubakar and Mr. Suleman have been in an ongoing battle over a love affair that the apostle denied took place.
Among numerous accusations, the actress said Suleman was behind an unidentified life-threatening ailment that plagued her for years and that he reneged on his promise to marry her.
In September 2022, the actress and her brothers called out Suleman on social media and accused him of being behind her illness.
In his response, Suleman issued a cease and desist notice to the actress while she either sought a published apology or faced legal action.
This did not deter the actress, who continued to call him on Instagram, claiming they were having an affair.
This prompted the preacher, through his legal representatives, Ephesus Lex Attorneys & Solicitors, to bring Abubakar before a judge, J. Enobie Obanor, of the Federal Capital Territory High Court in Abuja Judicial Division.
Despite the court order for her to appear in court for the start of the case on March 25, the movie star has given an interview in which she has made startling revelations.
In a live session with talent manager Samuel Olatunji, Abubakar alleged that she got pregnant by the preacher who promised to marry her.
He said Suleman cried when she lost the pregnancy.
“When I lost the pregnancy, he was crying; You would think it was real because he was shedding tears because I lost his child,” he said.
She also revealed that she got pregnant by Mr. Suleman three times and that the last time caused complications, forcing her to take medication.
“It’s crazy. I got pregnant three times by him. The last one made me bleed. I had to take pills to stop it. I bled for five years. I just came off a long hiatus.
“I’ve been in a spiritual battle, so I just got back. The blood just stopped flowing. You will not believe. I wasn’t seeing my period because I don’t know what my period is,” she added.
In a clip from another interview, Abubakar alleged that the cleric slept with her while she was bleeding.
“He was sleeping with me even while I was bleeding. That’s the dangerous part, and she told other people that’s why.
“The whole thing took me by surprise because I was naive and not a spiritual person. Even when I’m on my period, he does that,” the actress said.
Ever since clips of his interview hit the internet, Twitter users have been voicing their opinion on the subject.
Everyone insults this lady and calls her all sorts of names, but these same people never ask the question, “why always Apostle Aramara Suleiman?”
Whenever it’s something to do with ‘MAN OF GOD SORRY GOD OF MAN’ some people just lose their sense of reasoning.
