The botched midnight arrest of Apostle Johnson Suleiman and his subsequent invitation by the Department of State Services (DSS) is a clear witch hunt. The move by the DSS to arrest the man of God just because he expressed his feelings on the marauding invasions of the Fulani Herdsmen against Christians in the country is a clear attempt to murder freedom of speech apparently to engender religious bigotry.

The DSS should not stoop so low to venture into such dangerous journey which ends will only help to create religious crisis. Our Constitution forbids placing one religious practice above the other ones. Despite the genocidal killings currently going on in some parts of the country which has being perpetrated by the now sacred Fulani ethno-religious warlords, the DSS has not invited any of the Muslim leaders in the country for interrogation.

Nothing is more inciting than the DSS’ plans to suppress Christians from exercising their constitutional rights. Those handlers of Government institutions should be careful of their actions in order not to plunge the country into an anarchical end.

Nigeria is a secular Country governed by a Constitution. The DSS should not turn itself to an arm of one religious body in the land to perpetrate religious crisis.

Nigeria belongs to both Christian and Muslim faithfuls in the country and so no Christian leader should be made the scapegoat for expressing his ill feelings towards the Fulani Herdsmen’s brigandage.

We pray that the DSS should not by act or omission instigate religious crisis between Christians and Muslims in the country.

We are calling on all well-meaning Nigerians to prevail on the DSS to rescind its decision on Apostle Suleiman.

 

Signed:

Alaowei Cleric Esq.

National President.
