Kukah: DSS Should Stop Hunting Christian Clerics For Criticising Buhari’s Regime – HURIWA


Following Bishop Matthew Kukah‘s submission in his Christmas Day message, in which he faulted the president’s negligence on the security challenges across the country, it has been reported that the Department of the State Services, DSS, has invited the cleric for questioning.

However, the  Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has reportedly asked the DSS  to stop hunting Christian clerics for criticising the regime of President Muhammadu Buhari.

 This was reportedly disclosed in a statement by the National Coordinator of HURIWA, Emmanuel Onwubiko, on Sunday. 

According to the statement, “It was unpatriotic, unconstitutional and illegal for the publicly funded security agency to be manipulated by the powers-that-be in Abuja to be deployed as the attack dogs against only Christian leaders especially those who raise their voices against the heightened state of insecurity in Nigeria whereas the same agency under the control of the executive arm of government has consistently looked the other way when provocative, hate-filled speeches are made by notable Muslim clerics against Christians particularly.”

The statement noted, “HURIWA is miffed that a prominent Nigerian bishop has reportedly been ordered in for questioning by a state security agency after the prelate criticised Nigeria’s government for complicity in the face of kidnappings and other persecution of the country’s Christians.”

It added, “We condemn this aggression against the Church and against the Body of Christ by the current federal government headed by the Katsina born Moslem former Military General Muhammadu Buhari. This harassment must stop unless this government does not mean well for Nigeria.”
