The Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari, was reported to have sent operatives of the DSS after one Prophet Isa El-Buba, the General Overseer of the Evangelical Bible Outreach International (EBOMI) Ministries.
The incident which reportedly occured at the cleric’s home yesterday by 7:00pm was shared on social media after an awareness post was made on Facebook though the cleric’s page.
The awareness message shared on the cleric’s social media page reads:
“THIS IS TO ALERT YOU ALL THAT MR. PRESIDENT HAS SENT THE DSS TO ARREST PROPHET ISA EL-BUBA AFTER THE TIME WITH JESUS MEETING AT ABOUT 7PM.
THEY HAVE BEEN AROUND SINCE THEN, THE PICTURE YOU SEE WITH THE WHITE HILUX AND MORE THAN THREE MEN INSIDE AWAITING HIS ARREST, BUT NOTHING HAS HAPPENED YET AS GOD IS IN CONTROL
PLZ PASS IT ON ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.”
The matter however was brought under control with yet another update on the incidence stating that the operatives left without taking the cleric into custody.
“THE SITUATION HERE AT THE HEADQUARTERS IS CALMING DOWN. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS”
A social media user, Prince Henry Nwazuruahu Shield, also confirmed the arrest via his social media page stating that the men of the Department of State Security, DSS, stormed the cleric’s residence on grounds that he criticized the activities of Fulani Herdsmen.
The latest reports come hot on the heels of a video which surfaced online wherein the cleric, Prophet El-Buba criticized the herdsmen and President Buhari in a church sermon.
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!”
