Abuja-based human rights activist, Deji Adeyanju has absolved Paul Enenche, the Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Centre of involvement in the arrest of some protesters.
Addeyanju insisted that Enenche was not responsible for the arrest of some activists 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.
Reacting to the incident, Enenche had said the church was not a political ground for activism.
Enenche stated this in a statement by his spokesman, Dr. Adah Ochowechi.
Following the arrest, Adeyanju and Omoyele Sowore, a former presidential candidate, met with Enenche.
However, the convener of Concerned Nigerians, explained that the Dunamis pastor had made several attempts to effect the release of the activists, but the DSS had refused.
In a post on his Facebook page, Adeyanju 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.
According to Adeyanju:
