Dino Melaye, former Senator representing Kogi West, has warned President Muhammadu Buhari against attempting to arrest the Bishop of Sokoto Catholic Diocese, Mathew Kukah, over his Christmas message.
Anaedoonline.ng had reported that Kukah accused President Buhari of crass nepotism like never experienced in the history of Nigeria.
Bishop Kukah, in his Christmas message titled, “A Nation in Search of Vindication” delivered in Sokoto on Friday, noted that President Buhari had succeeded in sacrificing the dreams of Nigerians on the altar of nepotism by pursuing Northern hegemony.
According to him, there could have been a coup or war in the country if a non-Nothern Muslim became president and does some of the things Buhari had done.
Following the development, the Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, launched an attack on the Bishop.
MURIC accused Kukah of being a first-class blackmailer.
Reacting, Melaye in a Tweet warned Buhari against arresting or embarrassing Bishop Kukah.
He also said the President will be shown that the government isn’t owned by him but the people if he fails to heed to the warning.
“Arrest or try to embarrass Bishop Kukah and we will prove to you that Government is not owned by you but the people.
“They want to scare everybody. K**l fear and speak the truth to power,” he wrote.
