Human rights activist, Omoyele Sowore, has charged Pastor Enenche and the Dunamis International Gospel Centre (Glory Dome), Abuja, to pester the Department of State Services for the release of some five #BuhariMustGo protesters arrested on the church premises.
According to Sowore, the leadership of the Church needs to direct its over 50,000 church members to invade the DSS headquarters on Sunday and conduct church services there in condemnation of the five members who were detained.
Sowore made the submission when he addressed journalists at a press conference in Abuja on #FreeDunamis5.
Sowore said, “We are here to inform all Nigerians that Nigeria is no longer a democratic nation. It has become a Banana republic being governed by iron fist. We have a despot in government and he is Muhammadu Buhari and they are making no pretence about it.
“It is very despicable that the church has colluded with the Nigerian state to hand over innocent protesters to the lawless state security service that styled itself as DSS. There is no entity known to the law as DSS.
“So, we have met with the pastors and I discovered that he (Pastor Enenche) was playing games with us. He lied and I am emphasing it. He lied that his church members were not involved, but we have ample evidence that they were involved. They physically brutalised these protesters.
“I have heard some ask whether they should have gone with this T-shirt, the question is; if they had gone to church with T-shirt such as ‘I stand with Buhari’ or ‘Buhari must stay’, would you beat them up?
“And I have also heard some people who are saying that; why don’t they go to mosque? I think this is also a way of demonising Islam to say that if you go to mosque and fight against oppression, the members must beat you up. I have seen a lot of Muslims fight against oppression. The Shiites are fighting against oppression; everyone in this country is tired of the Buhari regime. And they are at liberty to wear whatever they like to church or mosque.
