Dunamis International Gospel Centre has disproved claims it handed over five ‘Buhari-Must-Go’ protesters to the Department of State Service (DSS) during last Sunday’s church service.
The protesters were arrested last Sunday at the Dunamis church’s glorious doom along the Airport road, Abuja.
Dunamis said the protesters were arrested outside the church, adding that they had no hand in the arrest of the youths.
An official statement from the church on Wednesday by one Dr. Abah Ochowechi, titled: ‘Arrest and detention of protesters – the truth you need to know’ dated July 6, 2021 said: “Nothing can be further than the truth. The church holds three services every Sunday and the Senior Pastor, Dr. Paul Enenche preaches in all the services.
“After the sermon in the first service on that Sunday, an altar call was made to which many people came out, including the said youths, and nothing happened to them.
“However, soon after their departure from the altar, they swung into a protest with blaring trumpets and saxophones right from the exit door of the church.
“At the same time, the event was covered and live-streamed with the background shot of the church building and those of the thronging crowd both exiting and entering the sanctuary for the next service.
“The live-streaming had the caption, “Buhari-Must-Go protest hits Dunamis Church in Abuja.”
The statement condemned the protesters by stating the church was not a protest ground.
Ochowechi said: “Moreover, the church is not an activism ground but a centre for the projection of truth against all forms of evil.
“The church is non-political and non-partisan and thus not an appropriate ground for political protests. It is not the seat of government where those who have protested against reside.
“We wish to state categorically that Dunamis International Gospel Center has no hand in the arrest, and detention of the said youths as they were arrested outside the premises of the church.
“The church has no right to arrest and detain people and has no detention custody. The right of arrest and detention resides with government security agencies.”
