Nollywood actress, Halima Abubakar has made her first public statement after being fined by the court for defaming Apostle Suleman.

Kemi Filani reported on Monday that a Federal High Court had ordered the actress to pay Apostle Johnson Suleman N10m as damages and had also restrained the movie star from further publishing defamatory statements against him.

The judge noted how Abubakar was allowed to defend herself in the matter but failed to do so. Hence, why she has to retract her statement against the clergyman on her Instagram page.

Making her first post since the news, Halima had via her Instagram page, shared a new photo. Unbothered by the court’s judgment, she stated that she was filled with gratitude and the gift of life.

Noting how God is good, she told her fans to enjoy their holiday.

“Filled with gratitude and the gift of life.

Enjoy your holiday dearies”.

Her colleague, Doris Ogala has reacted to the court’s order, calling it unfair as she pointed out how Halima was telling her truth. The best friend of Tonto Dikeh made it known that she would be putting a call through to Halima so they could contest the judgment.

Recall that for three months, Halima opened up on her affair with Apostle Johnson Suleman of Omega Fire Ministry, revealing how the clergyman reached out to her and how their affair began.

The then-ailing actress insisted that she never knew Suleman was married as he told her that he was separated, and she pleaded with him countless times to reconcile with his wife, but he remained adamant.

Halima claimed that Apostle Suleman proposed to her seven times but she rejected his proposal. Unbothered by the rejection, he involved the actress’s parents in their affair and had a wedding introduction with her.

Responding to her allegations, Apostle Suleman dragged Halima Abubakar to court, demanding N1billion as damages.

In his suit, he accused Halima of publishing damaging, malicious, and defamatory statements about him and demanded she retract her statement in some selected National Newspapers.
