Operatives of the Nigerian Secret Service have been accused of making an attempt to whisk away a cleric for making statements synonymous with sedition.
PoliticsNGR has revealed that a Pentecostal pastor, Isa Elbuba was almost arrested by the Department of State Security (DSS) for criticizing the activities of Fulani herdsmen.
According to a witness, Prince Henry Nwazuruahu Shield, Elbuba was almost picked up by the operatives in Jos, Plateau State yesterday.
It will be recalled that the man of God criticized the herdsmen and President Buhari in a church sermon video which has since gone viral. Elbuba is the General Overseer of EBOMI Ministries.
His church members reportedly resisted his arrest thereby prompting the DSS to invite him for interrogation.
Mr Shield wrote;
“You remember him? He’s the bold pastor who made the same kind of video I made few days ago. He has just been arrested. I’m ready for mine. We won’t let these tyrants destroy the democracy many laid down their lives to build.
BUHARI AND DAURA, I AM READY! COME FOR ME TOO!
