Outrage As Apostle Suleman Secured The Release Of Three Convicted Child Rapist From Auchi Prison

The General Overseer and founder of Omega Fire Ministry, Apostle Johnson Suleman, may have done more harm than good by seeing to the release of seven prisoners, including three rapists, from Auchi Prison, Edo state.

According to a report by TheCable, two of the ex-convicts were sentenced in March 2017 for gang raping a 16-year-old girl, while one was sentenced in May, for defiling a 3-year-old girl in Gambala community in Akoko Edo local government area of the state. They were all given the option of fine.

While speaking in an interview, the executive director of BraveHeart Initiative, a non-governmental organisation in Edo, Priscilla Usiobaifo, said the release of those convicted of rape was having a negative effect on their victims and their families.

She said her agency monitored the case from the beginning and followed through till the accused were sentenced to prison, adding that it was painful that after securing justice, the man who raped a minor spent only two months in prison, while the gang rape convicts spent four months.

Usiobafio said the mother of one of the ex-convicts went to the house of 3-year-old victim to harass the mother of the minor who was assaulted. Together with her brother, the woman was said to have mocked the victim’s mother that Suleman had secured the release of her son.

She added that the little girl went into a coma when she sighted the man who defiled her.

“The mother of this three-year-old baby called me that when her daughter sighted the young man and her child went into coma and later in the evening she called back to report that that the mother of the rapist came to her house, in fact knocked on the door to her room and began to make mockery of her telling her that the son which she sent to the prison has been released by the man of God,” Usiobaifo told TheCable.

“I wrote a report on it and put it on social media- Facebook, WhatsApp – the next day and there was an outrage on the social media. A lot of people contacted the pastor and informed him of what was happening and by Friday last week, he reached out to me.

“I narrated everything that happened to him and he apologised that he didn’t know the crimes committed by those people. He didn’t know that that was their background.

“He also stated that he was willing to do whatever he can as damage control to the victim’s family and call the rapist’s family that he didn’t send them back home to further victimise the victim.”
