Details have emerged into the alleged move by the DSS to arrest a Jos clergyman, Prophet Isa El-buba in Plateau State on Monday.

According to reports Pastor El-Buba, founder of EBOMI ministries, had told church members at a Sunday service to vote out President Muhammad Buhari for “failing” Nigerians.

But attempts by the security operatives to pick him up on Monday night failed, following the quick intervention of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN officials, led by its north central chairman, Yakubu Pam.

The effort almost degenerated into a clash between SSS operatives and local youth in Jos, according to PREMIUM TIMES.

Mr. Pam told PREMIUM TIMES in a telephone interview on Tuesday that CAN had intervened and restored peace.

He however did not disclose why the SSS attempted to arrest Mr. El-Buba.

But a close source to the pastor said the SSS was after Mr. El-Buba following his comments on the recent killings in Benue state.

He accused President Buhari of incompetence.

In a video, Mr. El-Buba called on church members to obtain voters cards and vote out Mr. Buhari in 2019, blaming him for the Benue killings.

Mr. Pam said the director general of SSS in Abuja had mandated him to interact with Mr. El-Buba, and report back to him (SSS) boss.

He denied rumours that CAN was mandated to hand over Mr. El-Buba to the SSS after their meeting.
