Apostle Suleman responds to Leo Igwe, director of Witches advocacy group who challenged him to heal a COVID-19 patient and get $1,000 reward

Apostle Johnson Suleman has responded after Leo Igwe, the director of Advocacy for Alleged Witches (AFAW), challenged him to treat just one COVID-19 or HIV patient and get a reward of $1,000.

Igwe, who holds a doctoral degree in religious studies from the University of Bayreuth, wrote in an open letter to Suleman: “I am challenging the founder of Omega Ministries, Apostle Suleman, to demonstrate his so-called gift of healing under agreed medical and scientific conditions. I ask Suleman to heal a person with a confirmed case of COVID-19 and get a thousand US dollars. This challenge has become necessary because Apostle Suleman has in a recent video urged the government of Nigeria to allow him and other pastors with the gift of healing into the isolation centers so that they could pray and heal those who have been infected by the virus.”

Apostle Suleman took to Twitter to respond to Leo Igwe’s challenge.

He wrote: “A certain Leo igwe says I should heal covid19 and get a 1000 dollars..I will send you the details of those already healed.. so you can investigate.. I am not the healer, God is…to mention 1000 dollars, shows you are broke and poor..keep it..you need the money than me..

“Normally I wont reply critics..but the website he uses has been constantly writing against me for 3yrs non stop..all kinds of stories. also, I feel so ashamed to see some Christians joining the world to attack itself.. Not in my time..Jesus christ called herod a fox..(Luke 13.32.).

“A pastor speaks for the oppressed and gets arrested, you are silent. he feeds the hungry, you are silent..he employs hundreds of jobless folks you are silent yet you claim to be a Christian. he replies critics and you are quick to say he should behave like a man of God?.hypocrites.

“For those who say christ never replied critics, you dont know scriptures..matthew 12.24-27,Lk 13.31-32.. he replied when necessary..I am not of the stock of pastors, that keep quiet when you attack pastors,. you ‘ridicule’ and expect us to keep quiet..some silence means consent..”

Suleman added: “Proverbs 26.5 say ‘Answer a fool according to his folly. lest he be wise in his own conceit’…

“According to proverbs 26.5,we are not replying critics,we are correcting fools..”

Nnamdi Kanu: Imo residents observe sit-at-home for IPOB leader’s trial

Published

on


Residents of Imo State, especially Orlu town and Owerri municipal, on Tuesday, stayed indoors to observe the sit-at-home order issued by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in solidarity with its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who appeared in court today.

It was gathered that the state secretariat, motor parks, schools, banks, shops and markets across the major cities were all shut down.

Even the Imo State University junction, Government House Roundabout, Control Post Roundabout, Warehouse junction Roundabout, Ikenegbu, Mbari, Douglas, Okigwe Road, and Wethedral Roads, were scanty.

In Orlu, the ever-busy Banana junction and Okwudo junction were more like ghost towns.

A journalist, Mr Martin Nwoke, in Owerri North Local Government Area of the state, made a passionate appeal to the Federal Government to release Nnamdi Kanu.

He said Imolites and the people of southeast states were the ones suffering the heat of the order.

Nwoke said, “In this part of the world, everything we do here involves money. I am begging President Buhari to pity us and free Nnamdi Kanu.”

A lawyer, Barr. Emeka Obi, told our correspondent that he could not go to file a court process due to non-availability of transport, while children, who could not go to school, resorted to playing football on the streets at Akwakuma.

Barely three weeks after the kidnap of a paramount ruler in Plateau State, the military task force responsible for the maintenance of peace in the state, code-named Operation Safe Haven (OPSH), has confirmed that gunmen have abducted HRH.

The lawyers equally had said it views the kidnapping of the royal father as not an isolated incident, “but the beginning of a well-orchestrated plan to intimidate and decapitate our treasured leaders in the state and the Middle Belt at large”.

While condemning the dastardly act, on behalf of UMLA, Barr. Philemon Daffi reminded the federal, state and local governments of their shared responsibility under the 1999 Constitution as amended.

Spokesman of OPSH, Major Ishaku Takwa, who confirmed the incident, said, “Troops of Operation Safe Haven (OPSH) in conjunction with other security agencies are on trail of the kidnappers.

“God’s willing, the security agencies will soon close-up on the criminals”, he maintained.
