There is currently tension in Nigeria, particularly the Christian community, over the invitation of Apostle Johnson Suleman of the Omega Fire Ministry by the Department of State Services.
The DSS extended the invitation to Suleman following his recent assertion that any Fulani herdsman seen in his church should be killed.
Speaking in the controversial video, God’s Oracle, as Suleman is fondly called had said, “Somebody called me and told me that there is a plan to send Fulani herdsmen after you and I said okay and the person said I should be careful and I said careful of what? He said the herdsmen are just going to run into the road like herdsmen and begin to cause confusion and while your security men clear them and you come out, they will open fire.
“I said okay. After about a week, he called me and said please, if you don’t do that, they might bring them to come around church premises. I said its okay. And I told my people, any Fulani herdsman you see around you, kill him. I have told them in the church here, that any Fulani herdsman that just entered by mistake, Kill him, Kill Him. Cut his head. If they are busy killing Christians and nothing is happening, we will kill them and nothing will happen,” he said.
Following his alleged inciting comment, the DSS attempted to pick him up few days ago in Ekiti but was foiled by Governor Ayo Fayose.
Suleman is expected to appear at the DSS headquarters today.
As at 8am on Monday, DAILY POST gathered that many Nigerians have gathered at the Unity Fountain to follow the man of God to the DSS headquarters.
Speaking with our correspondent, leader of the group, Abel Ebere said they would follow the man of God to the DSS headquarters.
“We are ready to die with Apostle Suleman. It is clear that the FG is determined to wipe out Christianity from Nigeria,” the group leader said.
Another member of the group who gave his name as Osa, noted that they would resist every attempt to arrest Suleman.
“They can’t arrest Suleman. That is why we are here to follow our daddy,” Osa said.
Suleman is expected to arrive the venue by 10am with over 30 lawyers.
However, findings by our reporter show that the man of God flew in to the FCT last night with his entourage.
