Florence Obinim, wife of Bishop Daniel Obinim has defended her her husband for flogging two
teenage members of his church for alleged fornication and attempted abortion.
In a video uploaded on Youtube, the gospel musician said had God not revealed to her husband that the two were planning an abortion, her family would have been ridiculed if the abortion had gone awry.
She thanked God for using her husband to expose the two.
“Obinim has allowed himself to be used by God. As a mother, I didn’t even know my child was
pregnant. If not for Angel Obinim whom God has gifted with visions, this would have been
disastrous,” she said.
Mrs Obinim also used the opportunity to rubbish suggestions that her husband owed her an apology for allegedly reprimanding her in front of the congregation.
According to a controversial counselor, George Lutterodt, Bishop Obinim disrespected his wife and
painted her in a bad light with the public reprimand. However, Florence Obinim said the only time
Bishop Obinim would chastise her in public is when God is at work.
“My husband has never reprimanded me in public. I have known my husband for years and he calls
me honey and never by my first name Florence. So if he calls me Florence in public, then it is not him speaking but God at work. If he had reprimanded me by saying “honey” then I would have known that was my husband speaking,”
She continued: – “At that time, the “Angel” was at work and so it’s not about husband and wife
matters else God will disgrace you. So when he rebuked me, I knew it was God speaking. My husband has not wronged me in anyway so if you are asking that my husband apologises to me then it’s as though asking my father Jesus to apologize to me,”
