The All Progressives Congress has demanded the arrest of Pastor Paul Enenche, a popular clergyman from Dunamis Church in Abuja, following his 'inciting sermon' during his church service on Sunday. In the sermon, Pastor Enenche, who supports Labour Party candidate Peter Obi, expressed his dissatisfaction with the conduct of the presidential election held on Saturday, February 25, condemning reports of rigging, result manipulation, intimidation, child voting, and other electoral malpractices. He warned that any attempt to undermine the will of the people would result in unimaginable consequences for the culprits, and he concluded by stating that those who do the wrong thing will go down in shame, ignominy, and infamy forever.
The APC has ordered the Department of State Services (DSS) to apprehend and restrain Pastor Enenche for spreading 'hate speech' and 'inciting' violence with his statements. During their press conference on Monday, the APC spokesperson expressed their utmost concern over the inciting comments and call to violence made by some spokespersons for the opposition, especially those from the Peoples Democratic Party. They singled out Dino Melaye, Dele Momodu, and Pastor Paul Enenche of Dunamis Church, calling on the State Security Services and the Nigeria Police Force to immediately restrain them from making such calls to violence.
A video of Pastor Enenche's sermon has since gone viral on social media, with many expressing their support for his message. Others have criticized the APC's call for his arrest, stating that it is an attack on free speech and religious freedom. The situation has sparked a heated debate among Nigerians, with many calling for a peaceful resolution to the matter.
