One of the protesters the Department of State Services (DSS) arrested at Dunamis International Gospel Centre is visually impaired.
The DSS went to the Abuja church on Sunday after they were invited by church security, an insider reportedly said.
Dunamis church security had detained the five protesters for wearing “Buhari Must Go” t-shirts.
Blind saxophonist Samuel Gabriel Iwatonaiye was, according to Sahara Reporters, manhandled by the church officials before being handed over to the DSS operatives.
A source revealed that “the blind gentleman was arrested for wearing ‘Buhari Must Go’ t-shirts.”
“He is a saxophonist and was arrested at Dunamis. The church security handed him over to the DSS after manhandling him,” the source added.
Dunamis founder Pastor Paul Enenche had denied any involvement in the arrest. He reportedly said the protesters were arrested by DSS operatives who were monitoring the church service on live TV.
But a DSS source later said Enenche’s church invited the secret police to arrest the protesters.
The whereabouts of the protesters remain unknown.
