Sowore rejects Apostle Suleman’s offer to stand as his surety
The legal team of Omoyele Sowore has rejected the offer by Apostle Suleman of Omega Fire Ministries to stand as surety for him.
Sowore is still in the custody of the Department for State Security, DSS, as he has been unable to meet his bail condition.
Reacting to the situation, Apostle Suleman tweeted today that he’s considering standing as surety for Sowore despite the negative publications about him which he made in his Sahara Reporters news platform.
Sowore once publicized how Apostle Suleman allegedly had an affair with Canada based singer, Stephanie Otobo, a thing which was denied by the Clergyman.
Sowore’s legal counsel, Inibehe Effiong, who spoke to PUNCH, revealed that the Clergyman is not eligible to stand as surety for him.
He said, “His (Suleman’s) offer cannot be considered let alone accepted . The man who is making the offer is on record of having had a public altercation with Sowore. So, there will be no basis for Sowore to consider it.
“The court stated that the surety must be resident in Abuja and the last time I checked , he was not resident in Abuja. So, I am not sure he is eligible to stand surety for him . So there is no way Sowore can accept such an offer.
“So, we are turning it down and we are not even considering it. The way the Federal Government politicised the matter, made it difficult for the bail conditions to be met. But we are in the process of perfecting the bail.”
