Nollywood actress Angela Okorie has made a call for Christians in Abuja to come forward to accompany Apostle Johnson Suleiman to the DSS office this Monday.

The Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide pastor was invited by DSS to appear at their Abuja office on Monday, 30th of January, over the inciting comments he made about Fulani Herdsmen recently.

In a post on her Instagram page, Nollywood actress Angela Okorie called on Christians to join the man of God in a procession because “he spoke for us all” and “together we will win this battle”.

See her post below.

The DSS has invited Apostle Johnson Suleiman to appear b/4 the Abuja office for interrogation by 10 am on Monday 30/1/17. Let every Christian come out in a procession to accompany Apostle Suleiman to the DSS office. He spoke for us all. We stand against the shameful silence of Nigerian government over killing of Christians in Nigeria; intimidation/ harassment of the church with state security agencies and the Islamic Agenda of this regime. United we stand & Together we will win this battle. Christians awake!!!!!

      So “Christians” can’t support one another? The lack of the right support among Christians has one of the biggest downfall. I’m not saying support anything/anybody but Christians are TOO silent on a lot of issues in the name of trying to be cool, hiding under complacency and judgmental of one another. Then quoting the scripture out of context, interpreting and applying it the wrong way. If we all go by “It’s God’s battle, He doesn’t need anybody” then we might as well not do anything in this life and wait for some”special” effect to fall down every time. God has given us voice, choice, freedom, mind, brain, etc for a reason. Use it appropriately and wisely not silence it.

      Social issues should be part of church’s issues. Infact, the Church should be the leading force.
      This actress is using her voice to stand for something whether you agree with her or not but she’s being bashed. It makes sense why Nigeria is down the garbage. Nigerians silent one another. Yet expect magic to happen automatically.
      It’s clear what Suleiman meant but people choose to make drama out of it. There’s been high number of christians being killed in the North and fulani herdsmen are a small terrorist group now killing innocent people. If they attack, attack back nothing absolutely wrong.

      Our approach to the whole issue is appoling. We Christians are not cawards. Prayers are good but we must be watchful. The Bible only though us how to pray. But little or no teaching was made about watching. The DSS should be ready to arrest many Christians for saying the truth. Personally I stand with Apostle Johnson suleman. Any Fulani herdsmen, bokoharam members seen near any church premises should be killed. For any Christian that is killed by a Muslim, two Muslims should die. Stop deceiving people that Islamic extremists are the ones killing people. There are Christianity extremists as well. I call on every Christians to wake up one church, versus two mosque. One Christian to two Muslims. How can a Muslim call a Christian an infidel? This is an abomination in the highest order.

    Unfortunately some of us have jobs. I hope you will be in the forefront carrying a placard madam. The battle you’re fighting behind the screen of your phone abi? Apostle Suleiman’s utterances were not God’s, spritual or biblical it was totally flesh so he should bear the brunt of his undiplomatic statement, seems he forgets the “anointing” on him makes him very powerful. People especially Nigerians adhere to what their spiritual authorities say more than anyboy or govt.

      Abeg, how is it undiplomatic? Be over there forming diplomat. Chai Naijas dey fear. Na only mouth. When there’s need for a serious approach, you will do it.
      He didn’t say kill all Muslims, he directed it at Fulani herdsmen who are killing people.

    “We ask all Christians to stay away from the planned protest and pray for the nation. We can almost agree that this is not a war but an invitation…” – Apostle Suleiman.

    The Apostle doesn’t need our support.

    Enough of all these dramas… Has protest march become new symbol of ‘”9 to 5″”?. He was not invited because of his defense for his faith (which I support him 100%) but for his call for bloodshed (which I am against 100%). Let us keep sentiments apart and be objective in our reasoning. It is left for him to clarify his statement with DSS and this is not a big deal, therefore it is not an issue.

    • Anon Today

      @ #MyPeople and all the objective people that commented before you,
      Fulani cannibals (a.k.a herdsmen) killed hundreds of Christians, DSS invited nobody, made no arrest. A Christian hears that Fulani murderers were planning to kill him. He raises alarm and calls on his guards to kill any of such bloodsuckers found around his property in self-defence ( a constitutionally guaranteed right); then DSS attempts to arrest him in the wee hours of the night. Now they have invited him for questioning because he desires to do what the government diabolically neglected to do.
      The inflammatory remarks that have been made by Muslims in this country are well documented. From the current president to the lowest of the almajiris. And when I say inflammatory remarks I mean such remarks that may actually be connected to senseless killings and carnage. But since the government does not question them for unlawful killings, inflammatory remark is usually treated as a civic responsibility.
      Sometimes I wonder the kind of spell used on some Nigerians, especially Christians.
      From your comment it’s obvious you don’t live in southern Kaduna, none of your family members was killed by fulanis and you don’t even care. I hope it doesn’t happen to you because if it does you’ll have difficulty recognizing the word ‘objective’ in a sentence. And I’m assuming you’re not one of those Fulanis.
      Before I forget, did you read or hear that Elrufai, Kaduna state governor, admitted paying some Fulani murderers to stop killing Christians? Yes he did. And the Daura Security Service did not bother to question anyone in that regard.
      You don’t even know the kind of country you live in, that’s if you live here.

      Defense of faith is different from calling for reprisal attack. However, you are free to go for a reprisal attack, if you think we are luke-warm Christians. I can & will contribute as a Christian to arm our Brothers & Sisters in the North to defend themselves against any threat to their lives but will not support them to go on a killing spree. This is my position as a Christian.

    its like saying kill all Ibo you see
    or kill any Yoruba man near my house meaning if i just see any Yoruba man weather armed or not i should kill, the Bible say Guide your utterances

      It’s not the same. Everybody knows he was referring to the herdsmen who come to make trouble. Is it in his church they will be tearing their cattle

    • Jade Edo babe

      January 30, 2017 at 5:48 pm

      Don’t be a mumu jor. Want to start another tribal argument. Everyone with sense will know it’s specifically targeted at Fulani herdsmen that are already killing Christians mercilessly.

    Look at all these comments…thats why christians can never stand united in this country…and did you people even understand what he said @ mama ovie…..learn to read and assimilate….i am really disappointed from all these comments…its talk like this that makes no one want to come out to lead a protest or even fight for this country….SHAME on you all

    @Mimi you need to learn to comprehend I watched the video and no way guided, we Nigerian Christian prefer sentiment to truth, this was how book haram started very soon our pastors and bishop will create Christian militant which will go around causing havocs in the name of religion

    • mimi

      January 30, 2017 at 12:40 pm

      He said and i quote “any fulani herdsman you see around these premises(church premises)kill him”…..is your understanding to go out and kill them…..doesn’t that mean defending yourself….you have never lost anyone to religious killings before, so you will never get it…until you find yourself caught in the middle of a religious crisis my dear…your natural survival instincts will def kick in.

    U guys need to understand the jihad concept. Muslims don’t care , they are very sensitive with their religion. Isreal keeps fighting back Palestine. If u live in the north, you will understand. Our president, elrufai all support this people so they already called for war. A lot if Northerners have made inciting statements about Christians but it Is swept under the carpet because it It’s their right abi?. With the way things are going you will later thank Apostle Suleiman for making that statement. Buhari made worse statement during His first presidential campaign but DSS did not invite him. Christians don’t keep quiet. Fight back. Every thing is not prayer

    The apostle wasn’t asking for Christians to get up and defend themselves against islamists. He was asking them to “kill any fulani heardsmen that comes near the church” after he had mentioned they were after him. So No it was not a case of him preaching self defense, he incited violence from his church members to protect himself. I believe christians need to protect themselves physically against attacks by anyone, fulani heardsmen or islamists which is what other christian leaders have said quoting passages to emphasize the fact that the bible isn’t against it. But the apostle only asked people to kill for him not to protect themselves. Besides he has only been invited for questioning which is what Fayose said should have been done anyway. So what is all the fuss about?

    Religion is a very sensitive issue,and I will admonish we should take this carefully. But we owe it as a duty to pray for the Apostle.

    January 30, 2017 at 3:20 pm

    It is this too much objectivity that hoisted GMB on us oh. When people were saying he was a bigot and didn’t deserve to rule, they said we should sound like educated people and not be tribalistic.

    Now Christians are dying like chickens and one person says we should kill Fulanis (which no one heeded) and he is invited for questioning while the one who have said the blood of baboons will flow was voted in as president. Other inflammatory statements nko, the response is always ‘they didn’t mean it’ but a christian talks and he means it abi?

    Until we are tired of being ‘objective’ and ‘educated’ and see things for what they really are, we will keep suffering. If this goes lying low, Christians have accepted to play 2nd fiddle. The Igbos say ‘remove the hand of monkey from the soup before it becomes that of a human being’.

    And all the Christian leaders are watching him leaving him to his peril abi….
    Even if he is guilty as charged, should he be left alone?
    Honestly if it’s the other way ie muslim threatening christian, l believe the treatment and support will be different
    WHERE IS THE LOVE?

    oh stop with the Christian not supporting each other talk. Christianity is a peaceful religion and will not condone any form of violence. anyone who preaches or supports violence isn’t called a Christian, I do not know what form of religion that is. remember when Peter cut of the ear of one of the soldiers trying to arrest Jesus, what did Jesus do? so if people come to this platform to say their mind on not supporting, please let them be.

      January 30, 2017 at 4:44 pm

      @ Tobi, your reasoning is flawed o… the Jesus putting the ear back was because his crucifixtion was for an appointed time and the time had come. As for Christians not being violent, there is self defense and violence for the sake of violence. Be forming I am a Christian and let someone come into your home to attack your children and see if you not violently protect them. We protect what is dear to us and yes I am a Christian. The Bible even says ” the kingdom of God suffers violence, AND the VIOLENT take it by FORCE”. I don’t see no peace here at all.

    • Tobi

      January 31, 2017 at 9:52 am

      my dear, I still stand and say this “CHRISTAINITY IS A PEACEFUL RELIGION”. We do not kill. we lead by example. telling your followers to kill any herdsman they see: I would assume this means even an herdsman that is taking a leak can be killed because he wandered into the church premises?? if you say I loud and clear that “Defend yourself if attacked”, I do get that. but not when you say “kill any….” my dear na the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence o, that’s the spiritual realm…don’t come and be misinterpreting the bible here o. take it by force means in prayers o, the spiritual…..

      p.s

      aren’t we all flawed? wink*

      @ Tobi, let me just clarify something…. I never said YOU were flawed…. I clearly stated your reasoning (on the issue) at hand was flawed. I do not know you to make such an unwarranted statement or pass judgement on your person. I don’t roll like that!!!!

      ‘smh’ aka Shaking My Head for you…
      Go and read your bible very well and ask King David that question or Abraham when he went to rescue Lot or Joshua….

      If you know the history of United Kingdom you will know there was a time it was Catholics vs Anglicans, Kings vs Catholics and there were many bloodsheds.

      Christians in Naija be like let me sha go to church and say amen instead protesting against government in every way against killings of Christians in the north but dared let down a ‘brother’ who talked. (Trump did #Muslimban yesterday, the whole city is upside down with protest, if it’s Naija, all we will have will be ‘twitter banters’ only)

    Yeah. Yeah. For the first time the DSS has behaved responsibly. Instead of trying to forcefully arrest fellow Nigerian Pastor Suleman. Pastor Suleman does not need anyone’s help to answer questions from the DSS. He has not broken any law(s) of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. However inciteful or provocative he may have sounded in the video. He was only exercising his rights under the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. I will like to steal this opportunity to advise members of DSS (rank and file) to stop unconstitutional Policing in Nigeria. A word is enough for the wise. I’ m just saying.

    Buhari said much worse and that statement was tantamount to sabotage even treason..saying he would make Nigeria ungovernable if he lost..
    However DSS issued no invite….El Rufai’s utterances when Jona was President still got away with it…talk less of the loose talk of the Fulani Clerics ..going on about infidels..
    All that peace talk…fi le!!….Xtians would not sit down like mumu and allow Fulani”s expand and encroach on.their land..churches . .
    Any suprise they claim Nigeria is a majority muslim country..

    From the comments of some so called christians here, it is obvious that we have a lot of half baked christians who know nothing about the controversy between light and darkness in this country. These ignorant people do not think before they comment. It is not disputable that Christians hold the peace and unity of this country by enduring all the excesses of deceived islamic fanatics. Just look at how a little threat of retaliation or self defence has angered some people in some quatres. What if Christians had swiftly revenged every previous attack? Where would Nigeria be today? We have seen all kinds of threat from northern elites against the peace of this nation yet they were not arrested. Let it be known to all that all well meaning Christians in this country are with Apostle Suleiman. Enough is enough.
