Days after Apostle Johnson Suleman told those criticizing and insulting him via online channels to pay him for that, a Youtuber identified as Israel Balogun has reportedly been detained by the Police Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department in Abuja over allegations of criminal defamation and cyber stalking of the General Overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries International. 

Punch reported that the 38-year-old who posted a video on his Youtube channel where he showed clips of Suleman declaring to his congregation that angels would deposit money into their bank accounts,  was interrogated for about four hours and later detained after being given stringent bail conditions.

It was gathered that the clips were from ministrations of the cleric in Atlanta, United States, and Auchi, Edo State, where worshippers showed their phones to testify to receiving credit alerts in their bank accounts.

Balogun received mixed reactions after he described the claims as false and slammed Suleiman.

He further told the publication that he later got a threat call from one Obi-West over the video and a letter from Suleman’s lawyer on Monday, August 2, 2021, demanding a public apology within seven days.

Balogun said; 

“He said he is the eyes of Apostle Suleman on social media and said I should expect to hear from them. He said I will be missing and he will make sure I get punished by officers from the Nigeria Police Force Headquarters.

“He said killing me is nothing to them. I recorded the whole conversation and used it in recording another video where I called people to rescue me because my life was in danger.
