“Some teams of individuals have been threatening him with ﬁre and brimstone whereas all related safety companies are pretending as if nothing uncommon is going on. We marvel if these threatening the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto are above the regulation or if they’re sacred cows within the nation.
“We have now studied the entire Christmas message of Dr Kukah and we’re but to see any incitement in opposition to Islam or non- Christians. We see nothing mistaken in his message to the nation that has been below the siege of terrorists, herdsmen killers, bandits and kidnappers as if there was no authorities in place. We see nothing mistaken in telling a authorities whose lopsided appointments are in opposition to Christians the entire reality.
“If criticism in opposition to a Muslim President at present, is an incitement to violence in opposition to Islam, it then means those that had been criticising the duo of former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan once they had been in energy had been really attacking Christianity.
“When has it develop into an offence to talk the reality to energy? When has it develop into a criminal offense to criticise a authorities within the nation?” a part of the assertion learn.
