Rapper, Eedris Abdulkareem has lambasted Apostle Johnson Suleman after the latter criticised a protest to The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) on Monday.
Abdulkareem led some Creative Group Industry protesters to RCCG’s Redemption Camp to urge General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, to make public his stance on some important national issues, including the abduction of Leah Sharibu, the Ruga settlement and alleged Islamisation of Nigeria under President Muhammadu Buhari.
However, Suleman slammed the protesters for the protest, saying that Adeboye as an elder should not be expected to handle sensitive national issues like a young man.
He equally debunked claims by the protesters that Adeboye had been silent on the abduction of Sharibu.
Reacting to Suleman’s criticism, Abdulkareem said, “Dear Apostle Suleiman, are you aware that Leah Sharibu has been under captivity for FIVE HUNDRED AND ONE DAYS? 501 DAYS….YES.
“Let me ask you why you did not pray to God when Stephanie Otobo accused you. Instead you went to the police. Why did you speak up against her and now ask us to be silent while our people are killed daily?
“I remember Pa Adeboye praying for Buhari. Why did he not also refuse to pray for him then. What is this hypocrisy that we like to dey embrace for Nigeria?
“All I am saying is this: Keep praying but also speak up? It costs all of you nothing. The Bible says Faith without works is dead. I am not a pastor yes I know this.
“If you as a man of God cannot join me to condemn the atrocities that are currently going on. If you as a man of God cannot condemn with your mouth (I no talk say make you carry gun or make you fight). Then the God that you serve and the one that hates injustice are not the same.
“Na me Eedris Abdulkareem talk am! Peace and Love always.”
