One Yusuf Isah, a suspect detained in connection with the assault on Apostle Johnson Suleman, the General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide, has provided additional details about the incident.
The 32-year-old suspect admitted that the cleric’s attack was intended to kill him.
He claimed, however, that he was not involved in the planning or discussion of the attack and that other gang members had directed the assault.
Isah said that he and his gang members trailed the pastor to the point where he was attacked with five AK 47 riffles.
He said, “The attack on him (Suleman) was to assassinate him. I was not part of the discussion; Ilayasu and Labisca were the ones involved in the discussion.
“We attacked him with five AK 47 rifles. Labisca trailed him from where he was coming from to the point where we attacked him.”
The police spokesman confirmed that five AK 47 riffles, two K2 rifles and 180 live ammunition were recovered from the suspect.
