The senior pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, Paul Enenche, on Sunday, handed some congregants over to the Security of State Service (SSS) for wearing shirts with #BuhariMustGo inscriptions to Sunday service.
The congregants who are activists were first apprehended by the church’s security agents who thereafter handed them over to the SSS operatives, activist Omoyele Sowore said on Twitter after learning of the incident.
There have been calls for the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari following his incompetence in combating major challenges facing the country, including economic problems.
According to Mr Sowore, the 10 activists who were first time worshippers were invited for prayer and upon obeying the call in their shirts protesting against the Buhari regime. They were subsequently apprehended by the church security men.
“About 10 activists decided to attend Dunamis church in their #BuhariMustGo T-shirts. The church asked all first-timers to come out for prayers,” he said.
“The patriotic citizens obeyed the clarion call from the Altar with their fully displayed BuhariMustGo shirt. They were immediately apprehended by the church security on their way out of the church and subsequently handed to the DSS, “ Mr Sowore explained.
The identities of those arrested were not immediately disclosed
Mr Sowore’s comments were also confirmed by some concerned citizens who stormed the comment section on the cleric’s live sermon on Facebook, demanding the release of the activists.
