Christian Man Arrested By DSS After Muslim Girlfriend Converted To Christianity….Evangelist & Family Tortured

For two weeks now, life has turned bitter for 64-year-old widow, Lydia Dafup. Her only son, Simput Dafup, an engineer, was allegedly tortured and abducted by men of the Department of State Services (DSS) for converting his friend, 19-year-old Miss Nabila Umar Sanda Galadima, from Islam to Christianity.

Simput, 29, and Nabila met four years ago on a flight from Dubai to Nigeria when they reportedly struck up a conversation. Nabila was from a Muslim home while Simput had a strong Christian background.

It was gathered that Nabila confided in Simput that she wanted to convert to Christianity but Simput cautioned her against such, saying her action might not be welcomed by her parents. At the time, she was 14 years old and a student of Air Force Girls College, Jos.

Since then, it was gathered, they have been in touch with each other and Simput eventually helped her secure admission to the famous Bingham University, Karu, Nasarawa State, where she is currently in 200 Level.

It was alleged that her father, Alhaji Umar Sanda Galadima, from Biu in Borno State, was aware of the development. It was also gathered that both families have even developed some relationship. Mrs. Lydia Dafup said she had been speaking with Nabila on phone while the family of Alhaji Umar was also in touch with Simput.

But trouble started on Sunday, January 7, 2018, when Nabila suddenly came to Simput’s residence in Jos, after she informed her parents of her intention to convert to Christianity. When the parents were openly opposed to such moves, the lady reportedly fled to Simput in Jos.

Simput said he was confused when the 19-year-old Nabila burst into his residence. He later took her to one Evangelist Jerry Datim, who he believed was in a better position to handle the delicate matter, which could snowball into a religious crisis.

Evangelist Datim, it was learnt, sat Nabila down and interrogated her on why she wanted to abandon Islam for Christianity. She was said to have insisted on becoming a Christian and face the consequences.

Datim hurriedly contacted the leadership of Jama’atu Nasiru Islam (JNI), Plateau State, because of the understanding between the group and the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) whenever issues of conversion arise from both faiths.

The leadership of the JNI, thereafter, obtained the phone numbers of Nabila’s father and mother. When the father was contacted, he reportedly said he was travelling but would direct his relations from Biu to come to Jos to address the issue.

But the following Monday, men believed to be from the Department of State Services (DSS) stormed Simput’s residence at about 10:45am and forcefully abducted him to an unknown location. His mother, Mrs. Lydia Dafup, said her pleas that her son should be left alone were ignored.

The widow said she had not set her eyes on her son since he was forcefully whisked away. She said his whereabouts have remained unknown even as no one had contacted the family.

Her words: “My son, Simput, an engineer, was on Monday, January 8, brutalised, tortured and whisked away from his residence in Jos by men we suspect were from the DSS for allegedly converting one Miss Nabila Umar Galadima from Islam to Christianity.

“The heavily-armed men, who stormed the residence of my son in five vehicles, blocked everywhere and assaulted people around the community. I am worried now because, as I talk to you, I don’t know the whereabouts of my son.

“Nobody has contacted me or any member of the family to inform us about where my son is. I know that some people that were found in the residence who were also assaulted and brutalised with my son were taken to Plateau State Command of the DSS.

“I am worried because these people told me that they didn’t see my son there. The men who whisked my son away put a mask on him and took him to an unknown destination. As a mother and a widow, I am worried about his safety.

“The assault, brutalisation and subsequent abduction of my son is horrible and uncalled for. He does not know anything about the said conversion but he is suffering the punishment of what he does not know. I want my son released alive.”

The aged mother, who lost her husband in 1993 when Simput was still a little boy, said she was the one responsible for the upkeep of the entire family. She said she didn’t know anyone she could contact so that her son could be released. She pleaded with the federal government and individuals to come to her rescue.

The widow said Simput, who would turn 30 this year, has been on his own, constructing gas plants since he finished the mandatory national youth service.

Evangelist Datim, who was with Nabila, was also whisked away with his wife and eight-month-old child to the offices of the DSS, Plateau State Command. He said he and his wife were also brutalised and tortured.

“The DSS stormed my house, beat me up and assaulted my wife, daughter and eight-month-old baby. They picked Nabila from my house. At the moment, Simput Dafup and Daniel Hassan, a taxi driver whose vehicle Miss Nabila boarded from Abuja to Jos, are nowhere to be found. No member of their respective families has been contacted,” he said.

He said the father of Nabila, a businessman vowed to deal with him on phone, saying he has all the connection within the security agencies to torture Simput and Evangelist Datim for forcefully converting his daughter.

Our correspondent made efforts to speak with Alhaji Umar Sanda on phone, but he never picked the calls. A text message sent to him to confirm the story was also not replied at the time of filing this story.

    So, Just because of a girl who happen to have found the Truth and Light and was ready to dump falsehood and bondage religion, it has become a big deal resulting to mass molestations and torture?
    Since when has it become the business of the DSS to interfare in religious matters? Na wa o…
    When are we going to grow up in this country? Or better still, when are muslims going to begin to reason with their head instead of their Anus?

    IF A CHRISTIAN Coverts to islam now there wont be any issue. But if any muslim is touched by God and he or she repents and get converted to Christianity, it would be another jihad war.

    Doesn‘t Nigerian consitution have any provision for a person‘s right to any religion of choice?

    A girl voluntarily submitted herself to the Will of God and these blind demons are busy punishing and fighting innocent people.
    This one weak me o…

    the best thing is for Nigeria to part ways as Muslims wants to Islamize Nigeria, this what Kanu was and still crying for but people would not see it. if a muslim convert a christian girl to muslim no get arrested but when Christian did its a problem.

    Buhari Government has come to destroy kill and divide.

    It won’t be like this forever. Christians in Nigeria must realize that NOBODY has monopoly of violence and must rise to the delicate occasion because it’s already getting late. They must ask themselves “will our children have right to freely go to church in the next 10 years?”. This is no longer time to think but act

    Animals in a lawless country!
    How does DSS come to play in a religious issue? Where was DSS when a 13yr old Bayelsa girl was abducted and married and converted to Islam? Every Dick, Tom and Harry just goes about flexing muscle.
    This is just a script from George Owell’s animal farm. DSS that refused to arrest killer herdsmen is on rampage on religious issue. The religion that has contributed nothing to economic growth. Arrant nonsense!

    as we d foolish Christian whom are waiting for God to come down & fight for us.we can see what buhari Government has for Christian. we Christias sit down & foldings our arms until they succeed of killing d hold Christian. if Israel can not go out for war,then d lord of Horst can not come down o sent down his angel to come & fight for them.but until wen they make a move.then God that we serve will be in their mids to give them d winning battle. so if Christmas are waiting for God to come down & fight for us, we are waiting our time. & we are going to die all in d bands of this animal. instead we should react fast befor is too let.cos if a Christian brother is receiving tortured for comiting nothing bad just because his Muslim girlfriend converted to Christian, & d foolish Christian leaders are keeping quiet on d matter, then I don know why i they they supposed to be Christian leaders. they would have political leaders. cos real Christian leaders act like Christ Jesus not fools

    that’s the result of voting a Muslim as the president of country, his agenda is to Islamize the nation,Christians we need to wake up from our sleep, and be serious with our life, we need to serve God faithfully or else……

    EXACTLY MY POINT @ DB. For Heaven‘s sake what‘s really wrong with all these uncircumcise philistines? All over the World people converts from Chritianity to islam and no dust has ever been raised by the Christian faithful.
    So what“s the meaning of all these molestations and intimidations over a girl who heard the call of God into God‘s family and followed suit?

    So by this kind of action now What are the muslims trying to prove?
    That they are stronger than us superior or wiser than us or what?

    Now check these names out:-
    1). Fathia Balogun.
    2). Moji Olaiya.
    3). Liz Da Silva.
    4). Laide Bakare.
    5). Liz Anjorin (now Aishat)
    6). Kemi Korede – not so popular.
    NOW Does the names above ring a bell? Those are our own actresses who dumped Christianity for islam without any issue from the Christians to the muslims why, because our religion does not encourage violence like islam but peace.

    NOW, BELOW Are some World football stars who also got converted from Christianity to islam:-
    1). Emmanuel Adebayor-Togolese.
    2). Frank Ribery- French.
    3). Eric Abidal- French.
    4). Nicholas Anelka- French.
    5). Danny Blum- German.
    6). Robin Van Persie- Dutch.
    EVEN Our own
    7). Emmanuel Emenike- Nigerian.
    ALL These people and many many more had it smooth converting from Christianity to islam without the intervention of the DSS or FBI etc molesting anybody over their convertion.

    May God help muslims to know the Truth cos, I believe that there are many in islam today, in fact so many who are held bound to the religion expressly AGAINST their wills and choice.
    May God liberate such people from that religion of perdition!!!

    This is one of the reasons why Buhari have all the security agencies led by Hausa/Fulani Muslims, it is one of his open agendas to Islamize Nigeria. Everybody knows of 2 Christian women who married Muslims and converted to Islam and nothing happened. To be precise, the late Mamman Vatsa’s wife was a Christian lady from Umuahia who coverted to Islam after marrying Vatsa; Babangida’s late wife was a Christian lady from Asaba and when she married Babangida she converted to Islam. Sometime ago an Islamic nut head forcibly took a 13 year old girl from Bayelsa and took her to Kano and converted her to Muslim and married her. The best thing is for Nigeria to break up into two (2) countries, the Republic of Northern Nigeria and the Republic of Southern Nigeria as the late Muammar Gadhafi advised when he visited Nigeria a few years before America killed him. Let it be like India and Pakistan. Where was the DSS when that 13 year old girl was abducted and forcibly converted to Islam as DB noted? J. B. Hunter, please do quick marry Amanda and covert her to Christianity. wink.

    DSS should stay out of this. This is not a case of “abduction”. Sometimes, i wonder how Nigeria politics and security operation work. The lady does have the right to choose religion but doesnt mean her “right” is the right choice.

    From medical standpoint, a child can not make independent decision until the age of 26 according to Dr. Phil. However, her parents do have the right to be suspicious of her move and conversion. They are responsible for her upbringing and wellbeing.

    Non Muslims don’t understand that islam is a complete system, a code of life that rest on the foundation truth and responsibilities. When a child converts from islam to another religion, he/she loses all “Islamic benefits” which includes her exclusion from her father’s will and her claim to parenthood.

    Not only that, her father has to declare her “not his child” to avoid taking responsibility in the Hereafter. Prophet Muhammad(Allah’s Blessings and Peace be upon him) taught us that everyone will be questioned (in the Hereafter) how they look after their shepherd. A man will be asked how he takes care of his wife and children etc. Therefore, her father has the right (not just because he feeds her) but bcuz in other not to get in trouble Afterlife. So he has the right to be suspicious of her conversion.

    As for DSS, the agency needs to get out of this. It is none of their business. There are more important issues to look after. There are ritual killers, Yahoo guys, brutal politicians, thieves and many countless vices they need to look after, not a simple domestic issue like this. This is absurd.
