How Bishop Oyedepo treated me when I was attacked by assassins – Suleman

Bishop David Oyedepo and Apostle Johnson Suleman Bishop David Oyedepo and Apostle Johnson Suleman

Apostle Johnson Suleman of Omega Fire Ministries has recounted the love treatment he received from the president and founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo, when suspected assassins attacked him.

Recall that on October 21, 2022, gunmen suspected to be assassins attacked Suleman’s motorcade, killing at least seven persons including security officers.

It was reported that the man of God escaped death because of his bulletproof car.

Speaking during a church service on how some ministers of God treated him during the trying moment, Suleman said Oyedepo’s love was exceptional.

According to him, some men of God who were expected to sympathise with him over the incident never called.

He said Bishop Oyedepo called several times and prayed for him against further attacks.

He said: “The love I saw from Bishop Oyedepo when I was attacked, I didn’t see from any minister in Nigeria. He didn’t have my phone number, he sent me his phone number. He said that they should give it to me.

“People were calling me. Bishop Abioye was calling me. I know Bishop Abioye’s number. And he (Oyedepo) began to pray for me.

“The next day, he called me again. Such a man! Who am I? He said, ‘they will not succeed, they can’t quench that light’! Tears came out of my eyes.”
