Controversial Nigerian man of God, Apostle Johnson Suleman, has said that he would buy a bulletproof car for all his church members if he could afford it.
This comes after a man of God narrowly escaped death during an attack by unknown gunmen. While he went unharmed, his aids couldn’t make it because they didn’t have a bulletproof car like him.
Apostle Johnson Suleman, the General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries (OFM), has responded to the controversy that has surrounded reports that he escaped an attack by gunmen in a bulletproof car.
On Friday, October 21, the clergyman narrowly escaped an assassination attempt in Auchi, Edo State.
On October 21, around 5:45 p.m., his convoy was attacked on Warreke-Auchi Road in Edo North Senatorial District, killing seven people—four police officers, one driver, and a lady. Fortunately for the clergyman, he and his family escaped unharmed.
Following the incident, Nigerians on social media chastised the pastor for riding in a bulletproof car while his aides were unprotected.
Finally, in the midst of the backlash, Apostle Suleman stated during a recent sermon in his church that if he had the money, he would buy a bulletproof car for each member of his church.
