The Senior Pastor and founder of the Dunamis International Gospel Centre, Dr Paul Enenche has been declared innocent of playing part in the not arrest and detention of #BuhariMustGo protesters.
Naija News reports that Abuja-based human rights activist, Deji Adeyanju, in a post on his social media page, explained that Enenche was not responsible for the arrest of some activists who were picked up from his church by the Department of State Services, DSS.
Recall that the DSS had arrested some activists during the church’s service on Sunday for wearing “BuhariMustGo” shirts. The development stirred a barrage of reactions as some Nigerians alleged the Christian clergy deprived the activist of their right, adding that he assaulted them before the congregation.
However, reacting to the incident, Enenche declared that his church was not a political ground for activism. Naija News understands that the pastor stated this in a statement through his spokesman, Dr. Adah Ochowechi.
Acting to dig into the root of the development, Adeyanju and Omoyele Sowore, a former presidential candidate, visited the DIGC headquarters in Abuja to meet with pastor Enenche.
However, the convener of Concerned Nigerians, insisted that the Dunamis pastor had made several attempts to effect the release of the activists, but the DSS had refused.
Adeyanju on Facebook, said the DSS claimed the anti-Buhari protesters were in the church to cause a religious riot.
The Abuja-based activist said the incident was an indication that the President Muhammadu Buhari’s government was that of a tyrant.
Adeyanju wrote: “DAY 5: The DSS has refused to release the Abuja 5 Buhari Must Go protesters who were arrested at Dunamis church despite all efforts by Pastor Paul Enechie to get them released.
“The DSS are now claiming the protesters were trying to instigate religious riots by going to the church. The tyranny of the Buhari regime is laughable. Like I said, the church had no hand in the arrest and detention of the protesters.
“I know first hand all the steps the church has made to get them released. Even today, the pastor has made several efforts. And I’m not been religious here, just stating the fact.
