President of Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide Apostle Johnson Suleman has warned that the bishop of Sokoto Catholic Diocese Matthew Kukah must not be harmed over his Christmas message which was critical of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Kukah had accused the president of nepotism.
However, in a tweet on Wednesday, Suleman said those reportedly after Kukah should instead address the problem of insecurity bedeviling the country.
“Nothing must happen to Bishop Kukah. Those who are planning it know what I am saying. Let’s not trigger what would snowball into more drama. Leave unarmed critics and deal with armed terrorists. Don’t touch Bishop Kukah. When you touch God’s ministers, God would reply you,” he wrote.

Some northern groups including the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum had called for action against Kukah, saying he was calling for a coup.
But the cleric in a press conference on Monday night denied the claims.
