In a statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday by its Secretary, Mr. Yunana Jacob, the group said the two-pronged plan hatched by the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai involved using the Department of State Services (DSS) to intimidate and put away Apostle Suleman, as well as cook-up spurious allegations of infidelity against him.
The Christian youth group said El-Rufai was scared that Apostle Suleman, being a vocal advocate of the plight of Southern Kaduna people, would mobilize Christians against his presidential ambition in 2019.
NCYN also alleged that El-Rufai’s agents have been recruiting young women from across Nigeria and some other parts of the world to discredit and impugn the credibility of Apostle Suleman.
”We have no doubt that from the events of the past weeks, that security agencies have been under tremendous pressure to frame Apostle Suleman under spurious charges to put him out of circulation, for daring El-Rufai over the persecution and killing of Christians by Fulani herdsmen in Southern Kaduna,” the statement said.
Jacob said NCYN discovered “after thorough investigation that El-Rufai’s 2019 presidential ambition was at the heart of Apostle Suleman’s travails”.
The group warned, however, that Nigerians are very discerning and will easily recognize when an innocent man is being framed for political reasons.
”The days of anarchy, when innocent people were slammed with spurious charges or their reputation dented to satisfy the inordinate ambition of some persons are gone,’’ the group said.
“The attempt to compromise Apostle Suleman’s matrimonial home will fail, especially now that such devilish plans have been exposed by the same girls that have been hired to rubbish the man of God.
”The life of any human being, including Apostle Suleman’s, is in the hands of God. We should warn that human life is so sacred that no one should do anything to take it. That is and would remain our stand”.
