Pastor Johnson Suleiman of the Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide, has ordered his security aides to kill any of the Fulani herdsmen who come around his church premises.
Suleiman who disclosed that someone had informed him of the plot to attack his church, said he was not bothered over the alleged plot, but advised his members to be at alert.
“Somebody called me on phone and asked, ‘Are you alone? I said ‘Yes’. He said: ‘I want to tell you something’ and I said, ‘What is it?’,” Suleiman told his congregation during a service.
“He said, ‘There is a plan to send Fulani herdsmen after you and I said ‘Ok’, and the person said I should be careful and I said, ‘Careful for what?’ He said ‘They are just going to run into the road like herdsmen and begin to cause confusion and while your security men clear them and you come out, they will open fire’. Then, I said ‘Okay’.
“After about a week, he called me and said ‘They might bring them around church premises’. I said ‘It’s okay’. And I told my people, any Fulani herdsman you see around, kill him. I have told them in the church here, that any Fulani herdsman that just enters by mistake, should be killed. If they are busy killing Christians and nothing is happening, we will kill them and nothing will happen.”
His comments have attracted criticisms from some eminent Nigerians and celebrities.
