The controversial religious leader   spoke after surviving an armed attack in Auchi, Edo State on Friday.

No fewer than seven persons were reportedly killed during the bloody attack, said to be an attempt by a gang of daredevil gunmen to kidnap Suleman.

A source explained that the echoes of automatic gun fire could be heard far away from the maddening scene of the incident.

The attack,o which took place at the popular Water tanker junction along Warrake Road, sub urban Auchi, caused pandemonium as people scamper for safety during the shoot out between the security details attached to the Auchi born Suleiman and the gunmen. It  lasted for about ten minutes,

The source added that the suspected kidnappers apparently laid a snare for the clergyman as he journeyed to Auchi through Auchi-Warrake Road, which is now very popular with motorists following the collapse of Benin-Auchi Road.

In a video posted on his Church ’s TV social media pages, Suleman said he will not be mentioning names of the suspects for now.

He said, “I just escaped an assassination attempt where seven people were killed. They opened fire on my car.

“My wife and my kids were there. The escort car with police, they killed the policemen. They killed the other people in the escort car, the bus, that were with us. They killed seven people.

“People who did this are expecting me to come out and mention their names, so they can come out and deny it but I won’t do that. The truth of the matter is, you can’t kill me, my life is in the hand of God, I’m a man of God.”
