A former pastor with the Omega Fire Ministries International Mike Davids has filed a suit against the church and its president Apostle Johnson Suleman, seeking N2billion for allegedly unlawfully interfering in his marriage.

Mr Davids had petitioned the Inspector-General of Police Mohammed Adamu last week accusing Suleman of committing adultery with his wife Pastor Faith Edeko who now heads the Utako, Abuja branch of the church.

Both Suleman and Edeko have denied the allegations.

However, on Thursday, Davids filed an action in Pet/041/2021 before the court, accusing Suleman of destroying his home and preventing him from seeing his three children.

In the petition for decree of restitution of conjugal rights, the petitioner stated that he married his wife pursuant to Section 24 of the Marriage Act at St. Andrew’s Cathedral, Ekpoma, on December 6, 2008 by virtue of which only a High Court can annul.

Davids, among other reliefs, prays the court to issue an order of perpetual injunction restraining Suleman, the church and their agents from gaining access or relating with his wife and three children.

He is also seeking, “an award of punitive and exemplary damages in the sum of N2bn against the defendants for unlawful interference with the claimant’s contract of marriage and the cost of N2m being the cost of prosecuting this action before this honourable court.”
