Nollywood actress, Georgina Onuoha, has called on her colleagues who benefitted from cleric Suleman Johnson to rise up in his defence in the wake of the sex scandal he’s enmeshed in.
Stephanie Otobo, a Canada-based singer, had accused the popular cleric of being in an amorous relationship with her for several months.
Although Suleman has denied being romantically involved with Otobo, she claims to have evidence to back her allegations.
Reacting to the scandal, Onuoha took to her Instagram page on Monday to state that Suleman is a benefactor to several individuals in the movie industry, hence they should speak out in support of him.
She warned Nigerians against castigating him as no one knows what exactly transpired behind closed door.
The actress said Suleman saved the life of actor Leo Mezie, who survived a kidney-related ailment.
“Before you come embarrass yourself on my write up, think twice!! And give me evidence showing that you are without sin. So be warned. Only God who lives in secret place, sees things done secretly,” she wrote.
“Leo Mezie was almost dead from failed kidney, Apostle Johnson saved his life by giving him 8 million naira according to Leo without knowing him. Majority of our colleagues Male and Female are benefactors of this man’s goodness and kindness. Go through his events and videos you will see almost all of Nollywood around him. He is known for blessing actors with cars and starting business for them.”
“He is a friend to majority of us plus including me. Majority of Nollywood players travel to his events home and abroad. He has supported majority of us. Seeing all these makes my heart bleed.”
“No man is perfect. We live in a world where it is easy to make and break people and have angry mobs clap because they feel entertained. It is sad!! Let any of you that have not sinned be the first to cast a stone at him and his ministry.
“Do we know what our priests, prophets, pastors, Imam, and numerous spiritual leaders do? Most of us don’t even know what our significant others do right under our nose, yet we laugh, curse and feel entertained at other people’s pain and difficult moments.
“Where are all the Nollywood benefactors of this preacher? Males and Females, old stars and upcoming ones? We all see your pictures with him. You all are now radio silence? May God have mercy on us all.”
Suleman has said that the truth about the scandal will be “exposed” in 24 hours.
He purportedly made the statement on Sunday.
