Feb 3rd, 2017 – DSS Detains Pastor Tarere In Asaba For Suggesting Self Defence Against Fulani Herdsmen

  • Protests took place in parts of Delta State yesterday as operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) detained a cleric, Pastor Tarere, son of Archbishop Goddo- well Awomakpai, over his comments on the issue of herdsmen’s attacks in the country and reactions to it.
  • Stakeholders of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in the South-South yesterday protested against the detention of Tarere by the DSS.

The protesters, numbering 70, including bishops, pastors, evangelists, deacons, reverend sisters and their lawyers, wondered why security agencies in the country have become instruments of witch-hunt and threat to the common men.

The protest took a new twist when Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, who Archbishop Awomakpai described as ‘my son,’ swiftly intervened in the situation via a text message.

The clerics stormed the yard of the DSS in Asaba around 11a.m. clad in their cassocks, but could not secure Tarere’s bail even when they were subjected to five hours of interrogation.

The detained cleric (Tarere) allegedly approved the self-defence approach of Apostle John Suleiman of the Omega Fire Ministries (OFM), which suggested self-defence as a solution to the activities of Fulani herdsmen during his crusade in Ekiti State.

  1. Why all these nonsense? ?? How many fulani idiots who detroyed farms and kill innocent people have you arrested. So they should continue to kill the innocent people. If Buhari’s agenda for Nigeria is evil the God Almighty will visit his family and homeland with the plaques of Egypt.

  2. Anybody planning to Islamize nigeria shall be put to shame and disgraced. The blood of the innocent will be on their neck and the lord will visit them with great affliction.

  3. all this DSS are jobless I can see, why are they going after Clergy’s? none of Fulani’s has bee arrested, they claim those guys who comes to Nigeria to kill destroy are foreigners and yet the DSS cannot arrest them, Muslims think they can do whatever they want in Nigeria.CAN should intervene in this matter

  4. Since a call for Self defence in the face of Muslims Killing Christians leads to arrest, then they should be prepare for more arrest. This is the beginning. #ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

  5. Something is wrong somewhere, buhari and his carbal should be questioned by international community b4 something terrible happens.his pple are killing defenseless xritians yet no action is taking, but now dey are asked to defend demslf, you started arresting dem. There’s God o, remember wat happened to pharaoh and his pple

  6. The outlandish and barbaric method the DSS has chosen to crack down on Christian leaders in the country is indeed a worrisome development. What explanation does anyone need in other to know whose desire the DSS is promoting? DSS is a tool in the hand of the president Muhammadu Buhari to oppress,intimidate and silence the clergy of christendom churches in Nigeria. Those that once referred to Buhari as the best president of nigeria are now been disappointed in his failed system of leadership. Beyond reasonable doubt,Buhari has disappointed nigerians with his oppression of christians in Nigeria, poor economic reform,unprofitable monetary policy,inefficient anti-graft war against corruption,no accountability to the recovered loot,no prosecution of any single corrupt politicians, in fact we are in a failed country led by a muslim extremist and they will be put to shame.
