President Buhari reportedly sent operatives of the DSS, to arrest the Prophet Isa El-Buba, the General Overseer of the Evangelical Bible Outreach International (EBOMI) Ministries, at his home yesterday by 7pm.
An awareness post about the arrest, was shared on Prophet Isa’s Facebook page and it read;
THIS IS TO ALERT YOU ALL THAT MR. PRESIDENT HAS SENT THE DSS TO ARREST PROPHET ISA EL-BUBA AFTER THE TIME WITH JESUS MEETING AT ABOUT 7PM.
THEY HAVE BEEN AROUND SINCE THEN, THE PICTURE YOU SEE WITH THE WHITE HILUX AND MORE THAN THREE MEN INSIDE AWAITING HIS ARREST, BUT NOTHING HAS HAPPENED YET AS GOD IS IN CONTROL
PLZ PASS IT ON ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
However it seems it was brought under control as Prophet Isa alleged the men left. He wrote in a subsequent post;
“THE SITUATION HERE AT THE HEADQUARTERS IS CALMING DOWN. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS “
Prince Henry Nwazuruahu Shield who confirmed the arrest, said Prophet Isa El-Buba was arrested by the Department of State Security(DSS) for criticizing the activities of Fulani Herdsmen.
It will be recalled that Prophet El-Buba criticized the herdsmen and President Buhari in a church sermon video that his has since gone viral. He is the General Overseer of EBOMI ministries.
Mr Shield wrote;
You remember him? He’s the bold pastor who made the same kind of video I made few days ago. He has just been arrested. I’m ready for mine. We won’t let these tyrants destroy the democracy many laid down their lives to build.
BUHARI AND DAURA, I AM READY! COME FOR ME TOO!
Here’s the video that led to the alleged arrest;
In the video, Prophet El-Buba said President Buhari is a wicked leader, who condoned the slaughter of Benue residents and couldn’t make any arrest. He also urged his congregants to get their voter’s card to get President Buhari off his seat. He further revealed that the killing going on in Nigeria, shows the irresponsibility of President Buhari and the church will fight him to a standstill. He further asked villages to defend themselves against herdsmen, since they can’t be defended by security agents.
In the video too, Prophet El-Buba said any President who doesn’t believe in restructuring, should be sent packing.. While he prayed for his congregants at the end of the sermon, he invoked the blood of killed innocent civilians to swallow the wicked in Nigeria.
Recall that also in November 2017, Prophet Isa El-Buba slammed President Muhammadu Buhari for negating the path of God and allowing corruption and injustice to thrive in his cabinet.
In an interview with newsmen in Jos, Prophet El-Buba said God brought President Buhari to power in 2015 to carry out an assignment for Him, adding that the mission was to “purge Nigeria of corruption that has become the norm in public service”.
Regrettably, he said President Buhari has “derailed from the task given to him by God due to the influence of corrupt political appointees on him”.
According to him, “it is clear from what is going on in this country that the oppressed and the poor are being denied justice by a government that is expected to uphold righteousness and judge iniquity in the land of Nigeria”.
Prophet El-Buba stated that the reason God made President Buhari to recover from his recent ailment that had him spent about six months in the United Kingdom was for him to “mend his ways and tackle head-long the injustices that pervade the landscape of Nigeria under the present administration which President Buhari is its current leader”.
Recall that few yesterday, we also reported that a Nigerian Christian lecturer, Engineer Simput Eagles Dafup, was reportedly arrested by the DSS for converting one Miss Nabila Umar Sanda Galadima, the daughter of a traditional title holder in Biu, Borno State from Islam to Christianity.
