Against the backdrop of threat and intimidation against the person of the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah over his Christmas Message, General Secretary, Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) Rev. Yunusa Sabo Nmadu Jnr has warned that nothing negative must happen to him.
This is also like the youth wing of Southern Kaduna People’s Union (SOKAPU) has described the statement credited to Arewa Youths Consultative Forum (AYCF) and signed by it’s national President Yerima Shetima, calling for the arrest of Bishop Mathew Hassan Kukah over his Christmas day message as ‘baseless and senseless’.
According to the ECWA scribe in a statement signed by him, he has read so many reactions to the bishop’s message with many of them coming from Muslim and Northern groups.
He averred that “some of the uncharitable groups have even called for the arrest of our revered Bishop. Arrest a man that spoke the minds of millions of Nigerian? They must be joking” he stated.
Reverend Nmadu further said that there is nothing new about what Bishop Kukah said, stressing that “the Bishop has spoken our minds, and we will resist any attempt by any group or agency of Government to harm him. Enough of this intimidation.
