Plateau State youths in their numbers Tuesday flooded the to act as a buffer against any move for a repeat attempt to arrest fiery Jos-based preacher and leader of WHOM I Ministries, Isa El-Buba.
An attempt by security operatives to effect his arrest on Monday was foiled by church members who queried the odd time the operatives came.
A source revealed that the operatives arrived a little after 7:00p.m. while members were preparing for a prayer session.
His attempted arrest is tied to viral video in which preacher had warned the President and authorities of dire consequences if the persecution and killings of mainly northern Christians continued.
He also urged Nigerians to go and get their permanent voters card to vote out the sitting administration.
It was learnt that the intervention of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Leadership in Jos, Plateau State may have stalled his arrest.
A senior pastor in the church told Everyday.ng that members were forced to resist the arrest because they could not trust those who came for him. He declined to give the number, because, as he put it, “I believe some others were outside the premises and others may have been lurking around.”
He confessed that the church leadership was also taken aback by the sheer number of youths who flooded the church premises this Tuesday to act as a buffer in the event that the premises is stormed today to arrest the preacher.
It was gathered that El-Buba was being expected at the office of the Department of State Services (DSS) today based on the agreement reached yyesterday, but at press time, it was not clear if he was there.
