Dr Paul Enenche, who is the Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Center, has called for the immediate arrest of ‘bishops’ who attended the unveiling of Kashim Shettima.
Shettima was on Wednesday unveiled as the running mate to the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, at an event in Abuja.
The presence of some bishops and pastors at the event had raised claims of them being fakes, especially as the Christian Association of Nigeria also disowned the clerics.
In a video on his Facebook page on Friday, Enenche bashed the clerics and those who brought them to the event as he calls for their arrest.
In his words: “You know there is a contest going on in this country right now where some criminals paraded themselves as bishops.
“That is the level to which the criminal leadership of this country has descended into. You see like begets like, those who sent them are like them. That is an impersonation of the highest order and they should be arrested and tried.”
This is coming after Tinubu’s Campaign Organisation (TCO) had refuted claims that the bishops and pastors who attended the event were fake.
TCO said: “We want to say that those clergymen were not fake, not mechanics or yam sellers as the purveyors of hatred have made Nigerians to believe in the social media. They are not big names in Christendom yet, they are gradually building up their missions.”
