Following his attempted arrest by the Department of State Services (DSS), Apostle Johnson Suleman of the Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide, has told Christians not to kill, adding that “If I hear a Christian go to attack a Muslim, I will be the one to attack the Christian because it is wrong.”
Clarifying his statement in a controversial video that went viral recently, the clergyman during a crusade in Ekiti State said: “Please let me say this. We need peace in Nigeria, don’t do anything. I never issued a statement that Christians should go about killing people. I will never say that, I’m a man of God. But I issued a statement that every Christian should defend themselves, and I’m repeating it defend yourself. But do not attack people, whether they are Muslims, whether they are Christians. Don’t go attack them. But do not drop your neck for anybody to cut it. My prayer is that God will bring peace in Nigeria.
“If I hear a Christian go to attack a Muslim, I will be the one to attack the Christian because it is wrong. We can be Muslims, we can be Christians in the same country.”
