Apostle Suleman Johnson, the founder of Omega Fire Ministries International, and former Nollywood actress Halima Abubakar’s dispute has taken a new turn as the preacher has legally filed a lawsuit in the case.

The church leader summoned Ms. Abubakar before Justice J. Enobie Obanor of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in the Abuja Judicial Division through his legal counsel, Ephesus Lex Attorneys & Solicitors.

The lawsuit for alleged defamation was brought against her in October 2022 by Apostle Johnson Suleman.

On March 25th, the legal proceeding will begin.

The Apostle filed a petition in 2022 requesting a number of sanctions against the actress.

Since it originally gained attention in July 2022 as a result of Gistlover’s post connecting her claimed affair with the Apostle to the fibroid surgery she underwent, it was the first time he would openly address the situation.

The apostle was then contacted on Instagram by the actress’s siblings, who requested that he avoid her.

The Apostle requested a declaration that her publishing was defamatory among other things.

Additionally, he insisted that she tender an unqualified apology and pay additional financial damages.

This happened just a day after she hosted a live Instagram session to discuss her friendship with Apostle Suleman.

The actress Friday made numerous attempts to have a live Instagram session with notorious faceless blogger Gistlover, as if she had heard about the case.

Poor connectivity caused the session to break up, which the anonymous writer blamed on Apostle Suleman’s “spiritual” meddling.

The Apostle and his lawyers have filed a lawsuit against the actress as a result of her refusal to comply with his requests.

According to Rodney Adzuanaga, Mr. Suleman’s attorney, the actress boasted that she was prepared to appear in court rather than abide by the cleric’s initial cease and desist warning.

Ms. Abubakar, who is reportedly ill with an unidentified illness, said that she had dated the Apostle before the legal processes began.

She further claimed that the apostle was to blame for her illness, saying that he should be held accountable if anything happened to her.

The apostle, who recently escaped a shooting, accuses the actress of defamation.

Her comments harmed his character, credit, reputation, integrity, and ministry, according to the court papers.

Mr. Suleman is requesting the court to issue an order requiring the defendant to retract her defamatory statements that were published on her Instagram account @Halimabubakar and in a number of other online blogs and publications.

Additionally, he is requesting a court order requiring her to pay for the removal of all links and reports of the alleged defamatory comments from all internet platforms.

Ms. Abubakar, who made her acting debut in 2001 with a supporting role in “Rejected,” announced her retirement in October 2022.

On her official Instagram page, the contentious actress announced the information.

Although she did not explain her choice, the post’s title, “rejuvenate and continue mending,” gives the impression that it may be related to her failing health.

The former actress accused the famous clergyman of breaking his vow to marry her for months on end.

She also claimed that he was responsible for a secret, life-threatening condition that had been bothering her for years.

The clergyman then gave the actress a notice to quit and desist.

The preacher claimed that Ms. Abubakar had posted harmful, slanderous, and derogatory remarks about him on multiple microblogging platforms, most notably Gistlover.
