He Was Once A Cultist, 5 Other Facts You Didn’t Know About Apostle Suleman

The founder and general overseer of Omega Fire Ministry (OFM), Apostle Suleman, has been in the news of recent because of his recent outspokenness and the attempted arrest by the DSS.

6 facts about Apostle Suleman that will surprise you

However, there are several interesting facts about him that many do not know. Here are some of them:

1. He once hated Christianity

Surprisingly, he once hated Christianity. According to him, the influence of his father rubbed off on him in his youth.

He thought many Christians were insincere. Seeing the pastors collect donations from church members without accounting for the expenditure was a turn-off for him. However, that changed in 1989.

2. He rejected a private jet given to him

According to Suleman, he once rejected the gift of a private jet, he explained in an interview:

“But I don’t have one yet. The truth is that, I was given a private plane as a gift about one month ago. But God told me that the giver was not pure.

“So I rejected it. You may have seen the pictures of the jet on the internet. In fact, I collected it. But when I prayed over it and found out that the source of the giver’s wealth wasn’t sincere, I politely turned it down.”

3. He was once a journalist and a writer

Apostle Suleman was once a journalist and a writer, he studied mass communication and he has a PhD in human resource development.

Suleman has worked as an investigative journalist at TELL magazine, and later moved to PM News before joining DBN, a television station, which is no longer in existence.

4. His father was a Muslim

Another surprising fact about him is that his father was a Muslim, while his mother was a Christian.

According to information available, his father stayed a Muslim, he did not see the possibility of his son leaving the fold. His parents disagreed on a number of issues, which eventually led to their separation.

5. He was once a cultist

The now holy man was formerly a cultist. He said in an interview:

“I was a dignified cultist. I am from a home of separated parents. My parents had some issues. Any child from a home like that is bound to fall into the streets.

“So, I got into school and I wanted acceptance somewhere. Someone told me that there is something called brotherhood and that I would be accepted as a family member and I liked it. I didn’t know there was a beating part and being taken to the bush.

“I didn’t like that. But you have to go into it. What I always avoided then was the assignments. I was just like a floor member. I would go to meetings and when assigned to do something and I couldn’t, I had to look for someone to do it and pay for it. I was not really happy but I was there.”

 6. His greatest challenge is the flesh

Suleman says the greatest weakness is that of the flesh.

“Men of God called to proclaim the Gospel of Christ in truth cannot be separated from having challenges in their various assignments as challenges are part of the call.

“The general challenge in respective of the call is the flesh and the devil. If these two things are removed, there won’t be any challenge.

“As for the achievements, we have several daily, weekly, monthly, yearly achievements but the greatest of it all is that we have the Most High God with us in all our ways,” he said in an interview.
