Pastor Sam Adeyemi
A Nigerian pastor among those who campaigned against police brutality has been sent an open letter by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The letter was by an anonymous source and shared by APC to Pastor Sam Adeyemi of Daystar Christian Center.
This is coming after the pastor questioned why he was sued by a Nigerian for his participation in the recent #EndSARS protest.
Sam Adeyemi had reacted to the suit filed by activist Kenechukwu Okeke via a tweet saying, “Who sent this guy to file this frivolous lawsuit?”
Reacting to the clergyman’s question, the APC shared the below open letter to him;
With all due respect sir, asking a needless question at this time is completely beneath you, and I am disappointed.
When a citizen has exercised his right to sue you and other people he believes are instrumental to the damage of his properties, as a pastor how can you be seen attacking a victim?
As someone we all respect, you shouldn’t get yourself involved in the EndSARS propaganda. I expect that you will, by now, be playing the role of ensuring peace reigns and the government meeting the demands of the youths.
A tweet of that nature is not responsible and does not fit the personality you project. Being a pastor doesn’t excuse you from answering to the court of law.
We should learn to deal with issues accordingly and appropriately. By now, we all know it is easy to unravel who is behind who and what in this new media age.
Pastor Adeyemi, if it bothers you that much, you can find this out in less than 24hours. But in my opinion, there are more pressing questions to be asked.
We cannot afford for people like you to also lose focus. PLEASE SIR, DONT JOIN THE FRAY!
Nigeria needs to be SAVED. Thank you, sir.
