Mother of Stephanie Otobo, a Canadian-based Nigerian lady who claimed to be in a sexual relationship with Apostle Johnson Suleman has said her daughter’s allegations were untrue.
In a recent interview with Premium Times, the woman who traveled to Auchi to beg Suleman said she was not forced or threatened as alleged by her by Otobo.
She said, “No, I was not threatened. I am a mother. I cannot continue to see her in that manner. She has been saying all sort of things. We are not happy and that is why I went to apologise. I went there alone; nobody threatened me.”
According to her, some lawyers must have manipulated her daughter to make the allegations.
“What I am still saying is that they should pardon her and the matter should just go down like that. They should forgive this matter because they’ve been manipulating her because this is not her real self.
“She was not behaving like this before. It seems all those lawyers are manipulating her, using her to say all this rubbish and bringing all this things out. So I begged that this matter should die down now because this is not my real daughter.
“I believe somebody must have been manipulating her. All those lawyers (and) all those her friends are using her. This is not the way I brought her up because I brought many children up.
“They are not behaving like this. Somebody is brainwashing her, polluting her mind and that is what is making her to do all this things that she is doing now.”
