*Says Ekiti governor has overstretched his immunity by shielding people from law

Apostle Johnson Sulaiman of Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide, has arrived at the headquarters of the Department of State Services (DSS).

It was learnt that the pastor arrived at the headquarters of the service at about 7:45pm

The Department of State Security (DSS) had invited Apostle Sulaiman over his recent alleged inciting comments that Christians should defend themselves against attacks by Fulani herdsmen.

The cleric was quoted to have incited thus: “Any Fulani herdsman you see around you, kill him. I have told them in the church here, that any fulani herdsman that just entered by mistake, Kill him, Kill Him. Cut his head. If they are busy killing christians over there and nothing is happening, we will kill them and nothing will happen.”

In the meantime, an Akure-based legal practitioner, Barrister Jimoh Saliu, has called for action against the Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose, saying that the immunity he enjoys does not extend to him shielding people from being brought to question over offences they commit which bother on national security.

The lawyer, in a telephone conversation with The DEFENDER on Monday, said Fayose, by obstructing the DSS from carrying out their constitutional duty of picking Apostle Suleman last Wednesday for interrogation, had breached the constitution he swore an oath to abide by and that by making himself the spokesman of the same cleric that was being invited for interrogation over inciting comments that he had made, he said Fayose had overstretched his immunity and called on the Federal Government to test it in court if immunity covers him to do that.

In a text message he later sent across, the legal practitioner said, “If Ojukwu as a Military Governor along with his lieutenants could be charged for treason felony over his action against the State, there is nothing wrong if Fayose as a civilian governor could be charged for same,” he said.
