- Says Stephanie disowned me as her father about two months ago
Mr Otobo, father of the Canadian singer, Stephanie, who claimed that she had an affair with Apostle Johnson Suleiman of the Omega Fire Ministry on Monday dismissed the allegation by her daughter against the church pastor as a tissue of lies.
Mr. Otobo who claimed nothing of such ever happened between her daughter and the fiery preacher however said that her daughter was not only rude but also a stranger to moral etiquette.
But Otobo was not too coherent in his argument while refuting the allegation.
For instance, Otobo said she divorced stephanie’s mother thirty years ago when her children were still very young.
But in another breadth while answering questions from newsmen, he said his daughter, Stephanie was twenty something years.
Miss Otobo sparked social media frenzy on Monday after she came out to claim that she was pregnant for Suleiman.
Rev. Otobo told journalists in Abuja, Monday that Apostle Suleiman had neither been to his compound nor known where he lived.
When newsmen asked whether Apostle Suleiman had ever been to his house for any marriage introduction with his daughter, Rev. Otobo responded: “Not at all. Apostle Suleiman does not even know where I live.”
The enraged fathered further added that he put an end to his marriage to his daughter’s mother about 30 years ago due to her unfaithfulness.

“I was shocked to hear this thing just yesterday. I’m not part of it at all. Even that my daughter, as I speak, we are at loggerhead because two months ago, I saw her picture on the internet, through her whatsapp.
“I had a shout with her on the way she dressed and I saw her with tattoo and all that, I now advised her that ‘look, why are you dressing like this, you need to dress decently even on whatsapp, she flayed at me, giving me names, calling me names, telling me I’m not serving God and different kinds of things I cannot even reveal to you now.
“She insulted me and told me that from that day on, I was not her father anymore and that I should just forget about her for life.
“If a daughter is telling her father that, I don’t know why I would be involved in anything that concerns her. I’m not aware of all these things that she’s talking about, not at all”, he said.
He admitted that his daughter told him that she lived in Canada, wondering whom she knew there that she was staying with.
“She told me she lives in Canada, I don’t know whom she knew there”, he added.
On the whereabouts of her daughter’s mother, Mr Otobo said: “Her mother is in Sapele. And it’s going to 30 years now that I divorced her mother, when these children were even small because of her unfaithfulness.
“So, I have divorced her for a very long time.”
When asked how old is Stephanie, he replied: “Stephenie is twenty something years.
“She grew up with the mother, she was very small when I divorced her mother. What is happening now is like ‘ like mother like daughter.”
The following conversation ensued between Rev. Benson Otobo and newsmen.

An administration official confirmed that Trump signed the new order on Monday morning.
Iraq is excluded from the initial list of seven countries in the new order.
Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway said legal residents were always excluded from the entry ban, “but that’s made much more clear now.
“If you have travel docs, if you actually have a visa, if you are a legal permanent resident, you are not covered under this particular executive action.”
Conway also confirmed that Syrian refugees will have the same 120-day ban, as refugees from other countries, until the screening procedures are reviewed.
Recall that a federal court had blocked Trump’s previous immigration order.
