The President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Olasupo Ayokunle, has disclosed that the body will not be sending an entourage to accompany Apostle Johnson Suleman to the headquarters of the Department of States Services, DSS.
A media aide to CAN President, Bayo Oladeji, made the disclosure while reacting to rumours that the body was sending an entourage to accompany Suleman to DSS office today.
Oladeji said though the body is solidly behind the fiery preacher, there is no plan to send an entourage with Suleman.
According to Oladeji, “I spoke with him (Mr. Suleman) this morning. CAN is solidly behind him. He was invited to the office of the SSS; let him go. We are behind him, but as for whether or not we are going to the SSS office with him, my answer to that is no. He was invited alone. But we are solidly behind him.”
Reports over the weekend had it that the secret police had invited the fiery preacher over his recent inciting comments.
The Edo-born preacher had allegedly asked his members to kill any Fulani herdsman found around him and his church.
Following the statement, the secret police attempted to arrest him in Ado Ekiti, but the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose prevented them.
