Canadian based singer Stephanie Otobo has been re-arraigned by the Nigerian Police alongside one Wisdom Godstime over alleged blackmail and threat to life, conspiracy, and intent to steal.

The Nation reports that they were arraigned before Magistrate Kikelomo Bukola-Ayeye of the Tinubu Magistrates’ Court in Lagos.

The police had, while seeking a remand order on March 6, accused the duo of “terrorism”.

Magistrate Bukola-Ayeye ruled that the police lacked substantial evidence to support the accusation.

The prosecutor, M. A Animashaun, informed the court that the defendants and others at large allegedly committed the offence at about 10.30AM on February 14, 2017, at Police College, Ikeja, Lagos.

Animashaun said that the suspects conspired to steal by demanding for property with menace and attempted to extort money from Apostle Johnson Suleman, the General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries (OFM) Worldwide.

The prosecutor, accusing the suspects of blackmail, added that they “unlawfully demanded the immediate payment of $1million to Otobo by Apostle Johnson Suleiman, the president and founder of Omega Fire Ministry Worldwide, else she would call a press conference and accuse him of committing adultery with her and thereafter kill him.”

Animashaun claimed Stephanie threatened to call a press conference, where she planned to accuse Suleman of adultery and threatening to kill her.

He added that the offences are punishable under sections 411, 301 and 303 of the criminal law of Lagos state 2015.

Stephanie Otobo and her co-defendant pleaded not guilty to the charges.

They were then granted bail in the sum of N100,000 each. The case was then adjourned to April 27 for commencement of trial.

      Why must he admit in public for sleeping with her. He did not force her and he does not owe us any explanation. She knew he was married.

    Hmm Him and his team are doing their part by bribing the right people to do his bidding. This girl, go back to Cana before you are found dead in Lagos oh. What will it cost him to have you killed? Chump change. Nigeria is not black and white like that oh. Fight your fight from Cana oh, not in Naija where the apostle reigns cos of his money in some circles.

    My only challenge is that if it is adultery these pastors will hammer on it being a sin, if it divorce they will say God hates it. Do we not know that passage of the bible that also says that revenge is of God and we should not take our matters to human judges?
