A former Minister of Education, Obiageli Ezekwesili, has condemned the arrest of Pastor Tomi Arayomi of RIG Nation and Pioneer Church, United Kingdom, his wife, and aide by the DSS.
She described the activities of the Department for State Services, DSS as troubling.
Ezekwesili also tackled President Muhammadu Buhari, the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the president-elect, Bola Tinubu, alleging that they appear determined to push the country to the precipice.
The former Minister’s statement contained in tweets via her verified Twitter handle on Monday.
The DSS arrested Tomi and his wife for allegedly being on their watchlist for a public speech the cleric delivered.
Though Tomi and his wife had been released and fled the country, his aide is still in the custody of the secret police.
Ezekwesili called on the DSS, which she claimed is directly supervised by Buhari, to direct them to release Ezirika.
She wrote, “I wonder what the endgame of @NigeriaGov of @MBuhari, their ruling party @OfficialAPCNg , @officialABAT & their supporters really is, considering how determined to push the country to the precipice they all appear to be. Just look at the state of the Nigerian polity! So sad!
“I read this troubling statement issued by Pastor @TomiArayomi on their arrest and abuse of rights by officers of @OfficialDSSNG. Very sad.
“Where is his Assistant, Emmanuel Ezerika?
“The DSS is directly supervised by @MBuhari who must direct them to release Ezirika immediately.”
