Apostle Johnson Suleiman also created a controversy last year when he said the governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, will die over a plan to pass a law restricting public preaching.
After the release of his comments on killing Fulani herdsmen, Johnson has been targeted by security operatives for arrest. The governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose intervened this week. According to reports Johnson was alerted about the impending arrest and called the governor who personal intervened and prevented the Directorate of Security Services from arresting the cleric.
Governor Favose said: “Are Christians and Muslims under different dispensation of the rule of law? That’s why I went there to rescue him. Let them kill two of us together. But when they saw my vehicles and the crowd, they fled… But we have information that instructions came from DSS in Abuja that the Pastor should be arrested. We are not in a fascist state, federal Government must learn to respect the rights of Nigerians and freedom of expression.”
