Apostle Johnson Suleman of the Omega Fire Ministry, OFM, has said Christians are not cowards and cannot be “cowed by fear.”
The man of God from Edo spoke while welcoming those who showed him support during his encounter with the Department of State Services, DSS. Suleman said he was humbled by the crowd who came to support him and asked all lovers of good to speak out in the face of oppression.
The outspoken preacher had had an encounter with the DSS over some controversial comments he made. After he successfully defended himself before the DSS, many supported him for speaking out against the killers.
In a thank you message to those who showed him support during the saga, Suleman urged Nigerians to keep hearing the voice of clergymen, saying one day things will turn around.
Delivering the message at the kick-off of the church’s annual “Ebenezer” programme, Suleman said, “I’m grateful to all. I never knew I was so loved. For the first time ever, fellow Nigerians behaved like Americans.
“Nigerians naturally have business-like mentality but I was shocked that on this particular issue, 90 percent of Nigerians spoke with one voice, saying enough is enough.
“We were not fighting any government, we just declared our stand that we are not cowards and we cannot be cowed by fear. I was so shocked at the level of strength and courage that I had throughout the period. And the courage I surmounted was aided by the love and exceptional concern shown me from all over the world. From over 70 nations, I received a lot of phone calls and text messages from people showing their love and compassion.
“I got messages of love from different people that I have never even met. I got up to 18,000 different text messages. I read and read. The solidarity was overwhelming. I was moved to tears,” stated the man of God.
“One thing that first moved me was when I got to Abuja to see the DSS, the crowd I saw almost made me to go into hiding. The crowd was so massive that they were ready to take bullets on my behalf.
“It moved me. The love shown was not just about me but for what they believe in and it gave me so much courage and made me to realize that I was not alone. I’m not taking it for granted, that’s why I’m saying thank you to all.
“I have to confess that I’m yet to recover from that show of affection. I therefore want to enjoin Nigerians that in whatever situation that we find ourselves, they should keep hearing our voice and I want them to know that one day, things would be fine”, he added.
