The Presiding Pastor of Zionwealth of Life Assembly in the Lekki area of Lagos State, Apostle Chris Omatsola, says his sex tape with Tamaratokoni Okpe, his erstwhile lover, was leaked to blackmail him.
Speaking on the development in an interview with Punch, the clergyman said his former lover was out to fleece him, adding that he could not have posted the sex video since he had his reputation to protect.
Apostle Chris said the second video of him confessing to posting the sex video was done under duress.
His words: “I never did anything of that nature and she does not have anything to prove it (assault). How do you, a popular pastor with a church in Lekki Phase One, leak your own sex video with your face on it? How does that work?
“That video (confessional video) was done under duress because I was picked up by the same lady and she demanded N200m (from me) for leaking the video, which I did not leak. She has it on her phone and I have it on my phone. So, she picked me up. My dad and the lawyer agreed that I should do a (confessional) video and it was under duress.
“The police were there, the Investigating Police Officer was there; I am supposed to pay that girl N1m before the end of this month.
“This (sex) video came from an unknown telephone number. I started getting calls on Sunday morning while I was in church and somebody said my sex video was all over the Internet. I called the blog that posted it to take it down.
“The next day, the police came to arrest me for it. I went to the station and I was detained; my lawyer came to take my bail. I was taken to the police headquarters where I was told that part of the conditions for bail was for me to make that (confessional) video. I needed to do it to come out to defend myself. You can’t defend yourself in a cell.”
