How youths were arrested in Dunamis Church for wearing ‘Buhari Must Go’ shirts, chanting
Operatives of the Department of State Services have arrested some activists for wearing ‘Buhari Must Go’ T-shirts to a Sunday Service at Dunamis Gospel Church Headquarters in Abuja.
Reacting to the incident, the Convener of the RevolutionNow protest, Omoyele Sowore, said “Security men at Dunamis Church have arrested activists wearing #BuhariMustGo T-shirts to their church service, church security later handed over to DSS officials who are currently torturing them. I thought Pastor Dr Paul Enenche was also preaching about justice! The five activists were driven away in a DSS Hilux van and two power bikes. Shame in the house of God.”
A top church official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, as he was not permitted to speak on the issue told PUNCH that the incident actually occurred during the service.
He said “Those people sneaked into the church, I used the word sneaked because the church was not aware of their intention, no department in the church knew anything.
“They even came out for altar call and before you know it we saw that they had ‘Buhari must go’ T-shirts and they were recording people making it seem as if the church planned the protest.
“We had to hand them over to security operatives because we believe in three things. It is either they were sent in by agencies to make sure that the church is at loggerheads with the government or either make it seem like the church sponsored the protest.
“Third is even if they have a genuine protest, the church is not the right place to go. If there is a problem in the country, the duty of the church is to pray that God help our leaders. We have handed them over to the authorities for investigations.”
