The founder of Omega Fire Ministry, Apostle Johnson Suleman, has wondered why the Department of State Security Service, DSS, attempted to arrest him over his alleged ‘hate speech.’
He said Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai had tweeted a hate speech and no one arrested him.
Recall that apostle Suleman had allegedly asked his members to kill any Fulani herdsman they find around his church premises.
Following his comment, the DSS attempted to arrest him in the early hours of Wednesday but Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, foiled the attempt.
As the attempted arrest continues to spark up controversies across the country, the apostle went into Twitter archives and dug out a ‘hate speech’ by El-Rufai and wondered why he was not arrested.
On his Twitter handle @APOSTLESULEMAN, he shared a screen grab of the tweet by El-Rufai on July 15, 2012.
El-Rufai had tweeted: “We will write this for all to read. Anyone, soldier or not that kills the Fulani takes a loan repayable one day no matter how long it takes.”
But the Apostle tweeted: “It’s not a religious issue but one against crime. I have Fulani friends and dey hate d killings by these herdsmen and support self defence.
“Every xtian should stay calm and not comment like those who av no understandn of d issues.pple believe wat they tink is rite.i love u all.
“You won’t open ur eyes and watch someone kill u. Don’t go for them but if dey come around u to kill u,defend urself..that’s my stand.
“He posted that and notin happened..those talking now kept quiet..many countless hate speeches by many..I simply said dfend urslf.check tape.”
