Tension as police, secret agents cordon off Dunamis church
There is palpable tension at the Dunamis church dome at Lugbe, Abuja as dozens of policemen and other plain-clothed state operatives have cordoned off the area in fear of possible invasion by members of the #Revolutionnow movement who are protesting the arrest of its members by the Department of State Services.
When The Guardian visited the church this morning, dozens of policemen were sighted in the area, while patrol vehicles numbering about four were also parked in strategic locations.
Human rights activist and pro-democracy campaigner, Omoyele Sowore, had threatened another mass protest if the five people arrested for wearing ‘Buhari Must Go’ T-shirts to the church last Sunday are not released within seven days.
Those arrested and detained by the Department of State Services (DSS) are Emmanuel Larry, Henry Nwodo, Samuel Gabriel, Ben Manasseh and Anene Udoka.
Sowore, at a press conference organised in Abuja, weekend, by a group called ‘Take It Back Movement’, also alleged that the General Overseer and Senior Pastor of the church, Pastor Paul Enenche, collaborated with the DSS to effect the arrest of the persons.
