Nigerians woke up to the news this morning that attempts by the Department of State Security (DSS) to arrest Apostle Johnson Suleiman were foiled by Ekiti state governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose.
Suleman is the General Overseer of The Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide, a fast-growing church with its headquarters in Auchi, Edo state.
He was in Ekiti state for a two-day crusade and was lodged at Midas Hotel, Iworoko road, Ado Ekiti when the DSS stormed the place.
The DSS action might be as a result of a widely circulated video of Apostle Suleman in which he asked his church members to deal ruthlessly with any Fulani herdsman whose mission is to attack him or the church.
Apostle Suleman video had sparked debate among Nigerians as some people accused the cleric of inciting violence, while others called for his arrest.
The foiled arrest of the fiery cleric has however sparked another debate on NAIJ.com Facebook page and micro-blogging site, Twitter, with many condemning the DSS for its action.
