It was stated a few weeks ago that some unidentified gunmen assaulted Apostle Johnson Suleman’s motorcade and killed roughly seven people.
Three police officers who were serving as guards and two other people—a man and a woman who is apparently the cleric’s housemaid—were killed in the attack that took place at Warrake Road.
The preacher warned his congregation that he might face reprisals from other ministers for his continued denunciation of atrocities in Nigeria.
He claimed that after he rejected their offer, these ministers sent assassins to kill him.
Suleman said: “Some ministers called me to Abuja after I spoke against the killings on a national scale, and they sat me down, threw a bag of money, and they said to me, take this and shut up.
“They threw out an AK-47, they threw out a newspaper, and they said take the money or you go by these two.
“I told them that I did not understand what they meant. They said if I did not do that, they would make sure that in this country, I don’t hold the microphone again.
“I said to them, I never knew what I said was actually a big deal; now I want to start talking. I said if you wanted to come for me, please you were very free to bother yourselves because I would keep talking, and I kept on speaking.“
