DSS questions Johnson Suleman and releases him.

Johnson Suleman
The Department of State Service (DSS) on Sunday invited founder of the Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleman, for questioning. He was told to come to the office on Monday.

This was because of statements the clergyman had earlier made asking his church members to defend themselves by killing Fulani herdsmen.

Suleman arrived at the headquarters of the DSS at Asokoro, Abuja, with a few of his followers at 8.34pm on Monday.

Speaking shortly after his arrival in Abuja, the cleric said the agency acted lawfully by inviting him.

“I presume the right thing was done. They have been in touch with me to come and that is why I am in Abuja, so that I can see them,” he said.

About the statement he made on killing Fulani herdsmen, Suleman said, “I was talking in my personal capacity on information from a reliable source that certain people in the capacity of herdsmen were coming to attack me and I told the people around me that if it happens they should defend themselves.”

According to Suleman’s spokesperson, Phrank Shuaibu, the clergyman was released before 11 pm on Monday after few hours of questioning.

“The interviews have ended. We have left the facility just now. I will communicate the details later,” he said.
