Dunamis International Gospel Center’s Pastor Paul Enenche has denied arresting and handing protesters over to government authorities.
Enenche said that the five activists who wore the ‘Buhari Must Go’ T-shirts to the church on Sunday were nabbed by the Department of State Service (DSS) operatives who were monitoring the service on live TV.
Enenche who hitherto kept mum on the incident, spoke on Monday when some activists including Omoyele Sowore and Deji Adeyanju met him at the Abuja church.
According Sowore who addressed newsmen shortly after meeting the clergy, Enenche debunked the report that the church was involved in the arrest.
He stated that the arrest was made by DSS operatives and not the security operatives attached to the church.
“They came here and it is their right, I wore my own T-Shirt to meet with him (Pastor Enenche) today.
“So, there is nobody who can tell you what to wear to church or to wear to school except the school that has uniforms.
“We have a respectable agreement and some disagreement over this issue but what is important to me and why I don’t want to drag this for too long is the release of these individuals from detention,” Sowore said.
According to him, Pastor Enenche has accepted to intervene and ensure that the arrested activists are released.
