Founder of the Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleiman, will be visiting the office of the Department of State Services (DSS) on Monday, accompanied by 30 lawyers.
Suleiman was asked to report to the DSS office over alleged “inciting statements” he made.
This comes after the security agency made an attempt to arrest the cleric in his hotel room in Ado Ekiti, for asking his followers to kill any Fulani herdsmen who comes close to them.
The attempt was foiled by Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose.
Suleiman is expected at the DSS headquarters in Abuja on Monday at 10:00am.
“Suleman will be appearing before the DSS with about 30 lawyers because we believe that his persecution has become politicised,” a source told Newsfile.
The church’s Communications Adviser, Phrank Shaibu, also confirmed the pastor will honour the invitation.
He said: “Yes, I can confirm to you that he (Suleiman) was officially invited and as a law-abiding citizen, he will honour the DSS invitation on Monday. The invitation, though ludicrous and an afterthought, is a welcome development.”
